Tennessee Commit Likes Terps
"I committed to Tennessee a while ago, but it was a soft verbal – a really soft verbal," said Floyd, a 5-foot-11, 184-pound athlete who made 50 tackles and had five interceptions while also standing out on offense last year.
"I'd say UT is slightly in the lead, then Maryland and North Carolina coming in right behind," he said.
Floyd hasn't been to Maryland yet, but is hoping to make it up before school starts. Even if he doesn't, it's likely he'll be making an official visit to College Park this fall. Michigan is also in the mix for Floyd, who is hoping to commit by Christmas time.
What is it that he likes about the Terps?
"Every year, they put some type of DB" into the NFL, he says. "They're pretty much a [factory] for defensive backs."
Floyd talks frequently with Terps assistant Al Seamonson and is intrigues by the opportunity to play early at Maryland.
"They've only taken a few cornerbacks and safeties the past two years. It's hard to go and play right away at a place like Maryland, but it's a situation where I think I could play early," he said.
Floyd ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash at the Shrine Bowl Combine this weekend in Columbia, S.C. Scout.com has plenty of film of him available to view, and has this to say about him:
"Floyd has a knack for always being around the ball and making big plays. He shows good instincts and great anticipation. Floyd has good cover skills and is fearless in the middle. He's strong in run support and can cover a lot of ground because of his great speed and reaction time. Offensively he shows excellent hands, body control and concentration. He can make the defender miss or run right by him. Floyd also has good vision and a burst."
