Four-star linebacker Demeioun Robinson announced his commitment to Maryland on Friday, giving Terps head coach Mike Locksley his highest-rated commitment from the class of 2021.
Ohio State, Penn State, Georgia and Texas A&M were also vying for Robinson's commitment. But in the end, the top-ranked recruit from the state of Maryland decided to stay home.
The Terps began their recruitment of Robinson last summer, according to 247Sports's Maryland blog, giving Maryland an important leg up -- particularly in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview with NBC Sports Washington's Julie Donaldson this week, Locksley talked about how his staff communicates with recruits during a time of social distancing.
"We do a lot of recruiting in the afternoon," Locksley said. "Whether it's FaceTime phone calls to recruits, direct messaging, and then we kind of get back together later in the afternoon as a staff just to see if there's any new updates on anything."
Robinson joins St. John's College High School's Taizse Johnson as Maryland's 4-star commitments from the class of 2021.
