T. Roosevelt's Drakeford Chooses Terps (Updated)
Post sports writer Alan Goldenbach breaks this news:
Theodore Roosevelt senior linebacker Darin Drakeford committed to Maryland on Monday afternoon, choosing the Terps over Illinois, which has had success recruiting the Washington area (especially D.C. public schools) thanks to assistant head coach and former Maryland recruiting coordinator Mike Locksley, a Ballou graduate.
Drakeford was on the Maryland campus Monday when he visited Coach Ralph Friedgen to tell him of his committment. Maryland offensive coordinator and recruiting ace James Franklin was on the Roosevelt sideline for the Rough Riders' game Oct. 10 against Coolidge.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Drakeford was a second-team All-Met last year, when he set a school record with 22 sacks. He is one of top all-around athletes in D.C. public schools, starring also on the Rough Riders' basketball team that advanced to the City Title Game last March.
Here's a Recruiting Spotlight video on Drakeford:
