Jalen Tabor has his team off to a 3-0 start, and he already has three interceptions to show for his sophomore season. With those kinds of numbers that have come against teams such as Cincinnati (OH) Taft, and local top programs such as Mount St. Joseph and Georgetown Prep.
As a result, Tabor has picked up a significant amount of interest for only being a sophomore. He's already been to two games this year for unofficial visits—both at Maryland, with another one scheduled for North Carolina later in the season.
So far, Tabor—who has grown up close to the Maryland campus—has already seen the change going on in College Park.
"Coach Edsall, he's doing a really good job," Tabor said. "Last year, they were pretty all right. They were down against West Virginia, but they fought back the whole way. (Edsall) is really doing what he has to do. He's putting together a great recruiting class."
Even though the Terps didn't pull out the win over West Virginia, Tabor was impressed most with how the team came back, and even watching how they handled themselves after the game.
"It speaks volumes of what a great coach (Edsall) is," Tabor said. "I would love to play for him."
Of course, Maryland's new uniform combinations are also drawing a lot of attention. For its game with Temple this week, the Terps will sport the black helmets, yellow jerseys and black pants.
"The uniforms are great; Under Armour, they don't usually make good uniforms, but these ones are good," Tabor added. "They are looking real good; like Oregon, now."
In addition to Maryland, Tabor claims verbal offers from North Carolina, North Carolina State, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Alabama. He expects to make one more Maryland game, and will also head to North Carolina.
"Carolina, they are really on me," Tabor said. "There's a lot of schools in the ACC (recruiting him); good locations. I've been down (to North Carolina) twice. They offered me. It would be a great option. I might try to go down there and check them out. I want to see places early before my senior year."
