Jordan Noil is a Terp. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound defensive back-wide receiver from Norcross High (Ga.) committed to Maryland a few days ago according to his coach, Keith Maloof.
Noil, shown making the tackle, is Maryland's 13th known 2014 commitment.
“I think he felt like he enjoyed his trip there and it was the right fit and they had the total package put together for him,” Maloof said of Noil, a three-star prospect who visited Maryland officially two weekends ago.
Noil, the 13th known 2014 commitment for Maryland, who also had offers from Marshall, Buffalo, Appalachian State and others, is a high-upside prospect who’s been overlooked by regional powers like in-state Georgia, Maloof said.
“I think he’s a guy who can play at that level. I think he could also come in and play on the offensive side, too. He’s a great receiver,” Maloof said. “I just think his best football days are ahead of him.”
Noil told InsideMDSports after his official visit that he was intrigued by the opportunity for playing time and Maryland’s academic profile.
“I really liked the stadium and all of the facilities. The coaches seem really in tune with grades and they really care about life after football. I like that balance and the combination of the two,” he said. “They’re saying they’re going to use me early. I’ll start off in nickel and dime packages and get used to everything. They’re not going to redshirt me, which is good,” he said.
