River Hill Safety Beau Brade Talks About Committment to Maryland and His Expectations
On Thursday, Maryland landed its ninth commit for the 2020 class.
Safety Beau Brade chose the Terrapins over Michigan, Rutgers, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest and a few others. Brade felt that Maryland was the best fit for him.
“Maryland was different because they are trying to make a fresh start and I feel like the coaching staff and the players really care about each other and are like a family,” Brade said.
Brade is a 6’0, 190-pound safety from Howard County, Maryland. He attends River Hill High School.
“It means a lot to be able to go play at the University of Maryland coming from Howard County because of a lot of kids have the same goal and getting to commit there shows others that they can achieve that same dream,” Brade said.
Brade is a three year starter on varsity. He was named All-Metro twice and selected to the BTC Super 22 Team.
As a junior, Brade led the Hawks to a 2A South Regional Final where they lost to Glenelg 35-0. Heading into his senior season, Brade will look to lead River Hill to their first MPSSAA 2A State Championship since 2012.
Maryland was not the only school Brade visited. He took unofficial visits to Michigan, North Carolina, and Rutgers.
Brade committed to Maryland a few days before his official visit to the school. For Brade University of Maryland has always been a school he thought highly of.
“Maryland has always been a great place to me because my mother went there and I’ve lived in the state for my entire life,” Brade said.
Brade will have an advantage because he will be graduating high school early and enrolling at Maryland during the spring. This will give him a chance to get ready to be playing at the college level.
“I think I can make an impact right when I get there because I know how I can play and I will be enrolling early which will give me the whole spring and summer to get ready for the season,” Brade said.
