Florida Defensive End Lands Maryland Offer

2011 defensive end prospect Anthony Rabasa garners another offer, this one from the Terps.

Christopher Columbus (Miami, FL) defensive end Anthony Rabasa has been racking up the offers lately. After a tremendous season in which he was named a second-team all-state defensive lineman for Class 6A, the 6'3” 220 lb. junior has started to attract nationwide attention. Rabasa regularly hears from top schools such as Florida State, Florida, Rutgers, and Michigan among others.

Recently, Rabasa earned an offer from Maryland, despite the low amount on communication with the Terps so far. “I'm very excited about the offer and if I get a chance I would like to go up and visit sometime over the summer. I don't have a list of top schools right now, but I would say I'm very interested in Maryland.”

Currently, Rabasa doesn't have any plans for the summer, but they are sure to fall in place eventually, especially after a season in which the junior racked up 85 tackles and 13 sacks. He plans on having his spring season play out before he starts to schedule visits.

“Right now I don't have anything planned except probably going over and watching some spring practices at Miami because it's close to my house.”

Rabasa holds 8 offers as of now, but that number is sure to increase as recruiting starts to pick up. Two of his main criteria for choosing a school is the amount of playing time and the coaching staff. “Playing time is important. It'd be nice to go in and have an impact as a freshman. Good coaches who won't leave are also important to me.”

Maryland already has a successor to Head Coach Ralph Friedgen lined up in Offensive Coordinator James Franklin, so that shouldn't be a problem in their recruitment of Rabasa.
