Western's All-Metro defensive back, Domonique Foxworth, who will sign for a football scholarship with Maryland during the early signing period next week, enrolled in classes at the school Thursday and will participate in the Terps' spring football practices, according to his father, Lorenzo.

"Domonique accumulated the necessary credits to graduate, which he will do, officially, in May. And he also already has six college credits," Lorenzo Foxworth said of his son, who had a 3.8 grade-point average on his last report card.

Foxworth, the state's highest rated cornerback recruit at No. 17 nationally by recruiting service, had a school career-record 14 interceptions.

As a running back, Foxworth, who ran the fastest 40-yard dash (4.3 seconds) at two different off-season camps, rushed for 1,369 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Also a quarterback and a returner of kickoffs and punts, Foxworth totaled 23 touchdowns on more than 2,000 all-purpose yards, leading the 6-year-old school to consecutive winning seasons for the first time.

Foxworth earned first-team All-State honors by the Associated Press, Most Valuable Player in the Baltimore County all-star game and had his No. 7 jersey retired by his school.

He will major in computer science at Maryland.
