DeMatha's CB McLeod the Next Josh Wilson?
"That picked them up a lot because it showed that they can get people to the league. The also recruit a lot at Dematha, and people play [once they get to Maryland]," McLeod told Terp Sports Report.
McLeod is a 6-foot, 180-pound corner with blazing speed. An accomplished sprinter and long jumper, he is a got commodity with colleges because of his 4.4-second 40-yard dash, solid academic profile and playmaking ability. He will choose from an impressive group of offers – Maryland, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Syracuse, Illinois, Michigan State, Boston College and UConn.
"I don't have a favorite yet," said McLeod, who is being recruited by Terps defensive coordinator Chris Cosh and is planning to make several visits this summer. "I've only been to Syracuse, and of course Maryland.
He said his priorities in choosing a school are "just the education, the program, the success they've had in the past and the coaching."
So, will the chance to play a few miles up Rte. 1 from his school have any effect on McLeod's decision process?
"Yes. There's [a positive] about being able to play at home and have your family come and see you play," he said. "They're a good program and I like the coaching staff a lot."
McLeod hopes to have a decision made by the start of football season, but is not 100 percent sure he will. TSR will keep you posted…
