Abrams gives oral commitment

November 16, 1992|By Mike Preston

Maryland's recruiting season has gotten off to a good start.

Arundel defensive lineman Richard Abrams, 6 feet 5 and 265 pounds, orally committed to the Terps over the weekend. Abrams runs the 40 in 4.9 and has been recruited by Clemson, North Carolina, N.C. State, Pittsburgh, Georgia and Virginia.

"Richard has great size, speed and the body you can put weight on," said Arundel coach Bill Zucco. "Major colleges love that."

Another player Maryland seems to have an inside track on is Keno Shawell, a 5-11, 200-pound running back from Glen Mills Prep (Pa.). Shawell spurned offers from Michigan and West Virginia to make his first visit to Maryland. Shawell, rated one of the best backs on the East Coast, runs a 4.3 40.
