"Yeah, I committed to Maryland," says the 5-foot-10, 185 pounder. "It was just ready. I like Maryland a lot. I verbally committed to the coaches.
"They were excited and wanted me to come down for a game and get the paperwork done."
Now that he has committed, Slaton will shut down his recruitment and focus on a big senior season.
"I don't think I will take any (official visits) other than Maryland."
Slaton, who ran for 1626 yards as a junior on 9.3 yards per carry, commits to the Terps over offers from Indiana, North Carolina, Temple, and West Virginia along with interest from Boston College, Michigan, Minnesota, and Penn State.
