Maryland football head coach Mike Locksley struck his first major recruiting coup Wednesday, as five-star wide receiver recruit Rakim Jarett flipped his commitment from Louisiana State University.

Jarrett, a St. John’s College High School standout and former WTOP Player of the Week winner, was rated as the No. 2 wide receiver recruit in the 2020 class by both ESPN and the 247Sports Composite rankings.

The 6-foot, 190-pound senior was also The Washington Post All-Met football Offensive Player of the Year and the Washington, D.C. Gatorade Player of the year after catching 60 passes for 950 yards and seven touchdowns.
