Fresh off a visit to Maryland on Thursday, former Florida State cornerback Marcus Lewis decided Maryland was the place for him. Soon after this visit, Lewis ended any other potential visits with an announcement today, on where he would take his talents.
IM A TERP 🐢 IT FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK HOME. THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY WHO SUPPORTED ME AND THOSE WHO STILL SUPPORT ME. IM EXCITED FOR THE FUTURE

Lewis announced that he would be transferring from Florida State earlier this month, after two seasons of seeing limited action at cornerback. Appearing in only seven games in 2016, Lewis recorded 21 tackles along with one interception.
He will have to sit out one year per NCAA transfer rules but can rejoin the Terps for the 2018-2019 season with two full years of eligibility left. Lewis was a four-star cornerback from Gonzaga College High School in Washington D.C.
The addition of Lewis strengthens Maryland’s Cornerback unit and adds to the #DMV2UMDMOVEMENT. Out of 16 current commits in the Class of 2018, twelve hail from Washington, D.C., Maryland or Virginia.
Currently, Maryland has two cornerback commits in the 2018 class from the Washington, D.C. high school H.D. Woodson in teammates Noah Boykin and Vincent Flythe.
With only JC Jackson and RaVon Davis being the only two main contributors from the cornerback position returning, this unit is wide open for anyone to play right away.
