DeGennaro’s commitment comes just days after fellow New Jersey native and three-star cornerback Tarheeb Still pledged to join the Terps. The wideout accompanies three-star receiver Corey Dyches as the only receivers in Maryland’s 2020 recruiting class so far.
The Princeton, New Jersey, product had interest from Penn State, Syracuse, Virginia and Rutgers but received scholarship offers only from smaller schools like Richmond, Howard and Fordham. The Terps were the only Power Five program to offer him a scholarship, per 247Sports.
That scholarship offer came Wednesday, per 247Sports, after DeGennaro competed in front of head coach Mike Locksley and new co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Joker Phillips at a football camp held in College Park.
Wide receiver is one of the Terps’ strongest position groups, as they currently have 14 on the roster entering the 2019 season.
Of that group, only DJ Turner and Chris Jones are upperclassmen whereas every other player will be able to return for the 2020 season barring transfers or entry into the NFL Draft.
DeGennaro’s commitment is Maryland’s 14th in the class and its eighth in June alone.
