Terps Get Started on Next Year's Recruiting Class

It didn't take long for Wise free safety Titus Till to make his college decision. Till, a 6-2, 190-pound junior last month was offered a scholarship by Maryland and this weekend he committed to play for the Terps.

"I loved the whole atmosphere of the campus and the coaches and the team is well knit together, it's like family," Till said. "It's a nearby school to my parents' house so they really don't have to spend much money to come see my play. That was a big part of it.

"I get letters all the time from various schools but nobody really stepped out there like Maryland and offered me so early."

"I believe Titus always wanted to play for Maryland," Wise Coach DaLawn Parrish said after a visit this morning from Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen, who also checked out the Pumas' other top juniors. "It's local. His parents can come see him play. He loves the university. [Assistant coach James] Franklin did a good job recruiting him. He went over there and liked Coach Fridge, his wife and the family atmosphere. He wanted to get it over with. The school, he's already seen over and over."

Till's only other scholarship offer was from Army, which offered him as a sophomore, thinking that Till was a senior at the time.

Parrish said that since Till committed, he has fielded calls from Pittsburgh and Virginia, which were interested in sending their head coaches to the Upper Marlboro school to formally offer scholarships. Parrish told both schools not to bother.

"The boy is solid," Parrish said. "He's going to Maryland."
