Maryland picks up DB commitment

Maryland went into Virginia for its most recent verbal commitment.

Falmouth, Va., defensive back Dexter McDougle, 5 feet 11, 180 pounds, pledged to the Terps on Saturday, according to

“It was my first official visit and I went to Maryland,” he said. “They showed me around, showed me the educational opportunities which are real important to me. They aren’t just worried about me as a football player, but also as a person. They care about me and it’s a family thing there. I figure I could help the program out. Plus, it’s not too far from home. That’s why I committed.”

McDougle missed most of his junior season due to injury. He rebounded as a senior, earning honorable mention All-Met honors from The Washington Post. McDougle was also selected to The Free Lance-Star’s first-team offense as a running back.

McDougle, who helped Stafford Senior High School to a 5-5 record, chose Maryland over Virginia Tech.
