A solid off-season for the Maryland Terrapins has suddenly taken a frustrating turn as one of their top recruits has reportedly flipped his commitment.
Maryland running back Jordan Houston has announced a switch from Maryland to the ACC’s N.C. State Wolfpack.
It’s a big loss for the Terrapins, as Houston was among the team’s top commitments for the Class of 2019.
Houston announced his commitment to Maryland back in July, but did not sign his letter of intent on National Signing Day.

247Sports has Houston rated as a top-700 player, the No. 6 all-purpose back in the country, and the No. 19 prospect from the state of Virginia.
As for the Wolfpack, Houston joins a recruiting class that 247Sports currently ranks No. 3 in the ACC. Only conference titans Clemson and Florida State are rated higher as of writing.
Last year N.C. State finished with a 9-4 record, finishing behind Clemson and Syracuse in the ACC Atlantic Division before losing to Texas A&M in the Gator Bowl.
Maryland’s 2019 class is ranked the No. 69 class in the country by 247Sports. The Terps’ class ranks No. 14 in the Big Ten right now.
