Marshall beat Maryland again.
One of the players to sign with the Thundering Herd on Wednesday was Demetrius Johnson, a safety out of Annapolis (Md.) Area Christian High School. Johnson chose the Herd over Maryland, which Marshall defeated 31-20 in the Military Bowl in Johnson’s hometown.
Johnson, who played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game, also had offers from Hawaii, N.C. State, Syracuse and Old Dominion, which will join Conference USA next season.
The 6-foot-2, 202-pound three-star recruit had 105 tackles, four interceptions and two sacks for Annapolis Christian as a senior. He was also a star receiver, catching 21 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns.
