Demetri McGill won’t sign with Maryland next month after the Terps pulled his scholarship last weekend.
A three-star defensive tackle prospect from Ocean Lakes High in Virginia Beach, McGill committed to the Terps in November but was told Sunday that his offer was no longer on the table.
“They said I had a previous knee injury, so that was their excuse to pull my scholarship,” said McGill, who tore his posterior cruciate ligament during his sophomore year. “I had an MRI done. [Maryland] called me about it [and] told me their team doctors said I needed total reconstruction of my PCL, but my doctor said I didn’t need it. He doesn’t recommend that I need to have surgery.”
