Maryland in the running for Attaochu
A familiar face could join Maryland offensive-defensive line commitment Nate Clarke in College Park next year.
Senior linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, a teammate of Clarke’s at Archbishop Carroll in Washington, has Maryland in his top five, according to Lions coach Rick Houchens.
“I think his top five, in no set order, are Illinois, Syracuse, Kansas State, Maryland is in the mix and I would also say Duke,” Houchens said. “He’s a distinguished honor type of student. He’s a high 3.0 student. So he’s very interested in looking at the opportunity at Duke because of the combination of football and the academics there. He’s trying to weigh out the whole big package. But the main determining factor could be where he has the best opportunity to get out and play.”
Attaochu, the No. 4-ranked player in D.C., will visit Syracuse on Dec. 5, according to Houchens. The rest of his trips have not yet been determined.
