Three-star wide receiver Dontay Demus Jr. from Friendship Academy, in Washington D.C., announced his commitment to the University of Maryland on his Twitter Friday afternoon.

The young receiver is the eighth commitment in the Class of 2018 for the Terps and the second large receiver. The 6-foot-4 Demus, and fellow commit 6-foot-6 tight end , Maleak Bryant, give Maryland multiple large targets for red-zone offensive possessions.
Even a brief check in on Demus’ highlight tape shows his instincts for going up to get jump balls in the end zone.
Demus previously told The Left Bench he wants a school he can call “home” and will give him a chance to earn playing time early in his college career. Demus also said he speaks with Aazaar Abdul-Rahim, his primary recruiter for the Terps, on “an everyday basis.”
Maryland beat out Temple, Louisville and Navy to secure Demus’ commitment. However, he did say he would still be accepting offers in his tweet.
