Maryland offered Belt in his junior year. He received All-State and All-County recognition. He received those honors as a wide receiver. This year he is playing a few different positions for his high school. On offense he has passed for over 300 yards, rushed for over 200 yards and has over 300 yards receiving with 10 touchdowns combined. He excels as a punt returner as well. On defense he has over 50 tackles with 3 interceptions and 8 passes broken up. He is one of the most versatile athletes in the state and few teams rely on a player to do more for their team.
Belt really likes Maryland and has been there many times for games. The campus is just minutes form his house. He likes the staff and the players. Belt won't have eye popping stats when the season is over but he excels at several positions which few players can do at even the high school level. Maryland offered him as a wide receiver and returner. Belt is in position to receive more offers but Maryland is in good shape with Belt. You can never have enough versatility and Belt offers the Terps a player that can help them on special teams right away. He will need to develop his route running skills and spend time in the weight room. Belt will see his way on special teams immediately and should be a standout there for a year or two and then will be a nice number two or three wide receiver in his last couple years.
