The Maryland Terrapins picked up their 10th verbal commit for their 2013 class when Frederick, Md., all-purpose back Richy Anderson chose Maryland. Anderson is yet another local player to have selected the Terps, and he chose Maryland over having offers from East Carolina, Boston College, Wake Forest, Rutgers and Temple.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Anderson spent time as a running back and wide receiver during his junior year and earned 1,500 yards of total offense and 12 total touchdowns while helping lead his high school team to the Maryland 3A championship game.
According to Rivals, Anderson is a three-star recruit and is rates as the No. 20 all-purpose back and the 22nd best player in the state of Maryland. Anderson said he chose Maryland because he feels that with the local talent that has already committed, there is a chance to build something great:
"With all the local guys they've brought in, there's a chance to build something real special here. I feel like the talent in this state is underrated on a national level, but we're going to show everyone that if we [Marylanders] all stick together we can compete with anyone. I'm ready to compete for a national championship at Maryland."
