After taking many twists and turns, four-star running back Anthony McFarland finally made his decision on where he’ll spend the next four years. The DeMatha High School product chose to stay home and play at Maryland.
Using Snapchat as a platform, McFarland spent all morning whipping fans up by taking cars, trains and planes. Deciding between Miami, Alabama and Maryland, the 5’8″ all-purpose back played the deception game. He flashed boarding passes to Miami and Alabama, appearing to cut the Terps out of his decision. However, a video of him rubbing a statue of the Terps’ mascot Testudo and announcing his commitment to join D.J. Durkin’s program put an end to the circus.
McFarland is the sixth four-star to pledge to the Terps, who currently have the 13th-ranked recruiting class in the country by Rivals.com. The local star who played a few miles down the road from College Park will be a welcome addition to a growing program.
