Porzel Chooses Terps

Just caught up with Good Counsel speedster Caleb Porzel, who yesterday committed to play for Maryland. Porzel originally committed to play for Virginia, before later changing his mind amid some perceived offseason turmoil in Charlottesville.

"It's home," Porzel said. "I just loved the environment there. It's very active. The coaches have great personalities. They're very caring and welcoming. I've always been a Maryland fan, living in Maryland. I always wanted to play for them. I had a bunch more offers. But once I got the Maryland offer, they were in my top five already."

Porzel said he also considered Oregon, Illinois, Pittsburgh and West Virginia. He took a visit to Morgantown, but the Mountaineers received commitments from two other rising senior running backs. That pushed him away from West Virginia and Porzel said he made his decision now because he wanted to make his choice before Dunbar-Baltimore standout Tavon Austin reached his.

"Me and him had the same offers," Porzel said. "And we have the same playing style. I wouldn't have a problem going to the same school as him, but I wanted to commit first."

Here's Porzel's highlight video and a recent Recruiting Spotlight on him:
