DL Angeh Still on Maryland's Radar

2013 defensive lineman Peter Angeh has visited College Park and likes Terps

Maryland remains on the market for defensive linemen to add to their 2013 class, and Peter Angeh from The Bullis School is one that the Terps have been keeping in their sights for that specific reason.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound lineman from Potomac, Md., has an unofficial visit to Maryland under his belt, and although the Terps have yet to send him an offer, Assistant Coach Tom Brattan has maintained contact with him.

“He comes to my school because he and my [high school] coach are pretty good friends, so he comes to our school every now and then and watches us practice,” Angeh said.

Angeh has also displayed some interest in Maryland, as he visited Byrd Stadium in September to see the football team face off against UConn.

“It was exciting to watch a couple of high school football players that I used to follow like Stefon Diggs and Wes Brown, because they're so close to home,” he said.

So far, Angeh has been impressed with the way Maryland has been able to rebuild the team following last season.

“Definitely one thing that stood out when I went there was the support,” Angeh said. “Obviously, it's not as big as LSU or Alabama or whatever, but they still have a lot of good fan support and I like that. It doesn't seem like another big state school, it still has a sort of family feel to it at the same time, so I like that.”

It's that same type of supportive attitude that he said he would bring to a future program.

“[I can bring] definitely a lot of enthusiasm and encouragement and a lot of energy,” Angeh said. “I just want to make a positive difference, you know?”

Besides football, Angeh also puts a high priority on academics when considering programs that are interested in him. At this stage, he knows that he likes Maryland, describing it as an “eight out of ten,” but he is also eager to learn more about the school.

“I've only seen the football part of it, I'm well aware of all of that,” Angeh said. “But I really haven't gotten a tour of the campus, so I'm not really sure where I stand in terms of academics.”

When it comes to location, Angeh is open to a move to the West Coast, and says that UCLA is one the top schools he is looking at right now, but he also likes the idea of his family coming to see his games.

“Other than that (UCLA) I really am an east coast kid of guy, or maybe Midwest - like Ohio or Michigan - that's probably as far as I would go,” Angeh said.

The Bullis School standout describes himself as a “high motor guy,” continuously chasing the ball and making plays on any part of the field. He enjoys watching J.J. Watt, Jared Allen, and Jason Babin play, as he describes them as “guys that just play” and don't over think things.

Despite his preference in playing style, Angeh will have few things to think about as the season progresses, and he will make sure to keep his options open.

“I'm definitely not turning the other way for anything,” he said. Angeh has also taken unofficial visits to Villanova and Temple and will take an official visit to Cincinnati after the season is over.

Angeh currently holds offers from Western Michigan, Temple, UMass, and Dartmouth.
