Riverside Community College (CA) linebacker Nick Underwood committed to the University of Maryland Tuesday afternoon, he announced on his Twitter account.
The 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker is the 26th commit for Maryland in the Class of 2017. With his commitment, the Terps hold strong with the No. 15 class in the country, which ranks 3rd in the Big Ten, according to the 247Sports Team Rankings.
Underwood is the second player in as many years to commit to Maryland after playing at Riverside. Last year, cornerback J.C. Jackson took his talents from the California junior college to Maryland.
Underwood originally committed to Air Force as a member of the Class of 2014 before enrolling at Riverside, where he played two years before looking to play Division I football. After taking official visits to Maryland and Washington State in the past week, Underwood decided that College Park was the place for him.
As a junior college transfer, Underwood will enroll as soon as possible and be in College Park for spring practice early, which will give him a leg up on other incoming linebackers.
