Till Uses Other Sports to Improve Skills

Maryland commit Titus Till will play basketball and run track before enrolling at Maryland.

With his high school football career over, Maryland Commit Titus Till is ready for next season in College Park. Before he can suit up for the Terps next fall, however, he will finish high school by playing basketball and running track.

After speaking with Coach Franklin of the Terps, Till was told that he should play basketball this year to improve for football. The future Maryland safety will use man-to-man defense in basketball to help his coverage for football.

Following basketball season, the 3-star safety out of Upper Marlboro, Maryland will continue to train by running track in the spring. Till will use the two sports to better prepare himself for college football.

By moving on to basketball, Till can put a devastating end to the football season behind him.

Till finished out his high school football tenure with a heartbreaking loss in the state championship. Old Mill defeated and Henry A. Wise High 17-16 in the 4A state finals.

With his football squad reaching the state finals, he had no time to worry about the Terps disappointing season and off-field turmoil. Till was also too focused on his season to be concerned about the job security of Maryland Coach Ralph Freidgen.

“I never really paid any attention because I was more focused really on my high school team…Now that it's over with, I'm glad [Friedgen] is back,” Till commented.

No stats have been reported yet from Titus Till's senior season.
