DeMatha running back chooses Terps
The Maryland basketball team wasn't the only Terps squad to score a victory on Wednesday night.
The football team scored a win as well, receiving a verbal commitment from DeMatha junior running back Delonte Morton, who did not play this past season after tearing knee ligaments in the preseason.
DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor said that Morton, who is 6 feet 1 and 230 pounds, received a scholarship offer based on his performance at Maryland's one-day camp last summer. He played running back and defensive end as a sophomore and could be the Stags' top tailback this fall.
"He's good," McGregor said. "He could be better than [Marcus] Coker if he's healthy."
Morton is the second DeMatha junior football player to make his college choice. Tight end Joe Collura last month committed to Pittsburgh. Five more DeMatha juniors already hold scholarship offers.
