Hayfield High School (Va.) wide receiver Brian Cobbs committed to the University of Maryland on Tuesday.
Cobbs is the 11th player in the Terps’ 2018 recruiting class, which is ranked seventh in the Big Ten and 24th nationally, according to 247sports.
“The biggest thing is the relationship that I have with the coaches,” Cobbs told 247Sports’ Ahmed Grafir. “Coach Beatty, he’s had his eyes on me since end of my sophomore year. Plus, my coach’s son [Caleb Henderson] plays here so I’ve been around the program for a while. Every time I come, the coaching staff treats me like family. I feel like that’s one of the biggest things I stress, just to have a coaching staff that cares about you like that.”
Cobbs picked Maryland over Temple, N.C. State, Virginia and 11 other schools. The three-star Virginia native is ranked the No. 195 in the class of 2018.
Cobbs has taken several visits to College Park, and believes the Terps’ offense fits his playing style.
“I know we run the same type of offense, so I know I can come in and not really a big adjustment and make an impact pretty fast,” Cobbs said. “I know receiver is a position of need.”
