Loyola junior wide receiver/safety Jordan Floyd received a football scholarship offer from the University of Maryland, not long after a strong performance in Loyola’s opening game with DeMatha, earlier this month at I-95 Kickoff Classic at Towson University.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Floyd caught eight balls for 112-yards against DeMatha, as scouts from Maryland watched from the stands. The following week during a visit to College Park, Floyd received his offer from Terp defensive coordinator Don Brown.
Floyd said he is getting lots of advice from his older brother Brandon, who went through the recruiting process two years ago at Loyola, before signing with Georgetown University.
“He said keep it in your back pocket. Don’t relax yet. You got to keep going. The expectations are higher, so you have to work harder,” is the message Floyd said he received from his brother. “He’s a good example.”
Here is Floyd’s interview, earlier this week, with VarsitySportsNetwork.com on the offer and his approach to the recruiting process.
