Four-star cornerback Braydon Lee flipped his commitment from South Carolina to Maryland, he announced Wednesday.
Lee is the 13th-best prospect in Maryland and the No. 24 cornerback in the nation, per 247Sports. The Charles Herbert Flowers product had been committed to the Gamecocks since April, but will now stay local and commit to his hometown school. He intends to enroll early in January.
Lee immediately steps in as one of the top commits in coach Michael Locksley’s 2024 class. He is one of three four-star recruits currently committed to the Terps alongside safety Brandon Jacob and running back DeJuan Williams.
The 6-foot, 163-pound defensive back will join Flowers teammate and fellow Maryland cornerback commit Lloyd Irvin III in College Park. Irvin committed to the Terps in July after ascending rapidly in his first season with the Jaguars.
Lee recorded a team-high three interceptions, including a pick six, as a senior and helped lead the Jaguars to a 9-2 record before their season was cut short due to a player being ruled ineligible. He was a Washington Post First Team All-Met selection.
Lee is the fourth cornerback to commit to Maryland, joining Irvin, Judah Jenkins and La’khi Roland. He will have the opportunity to contribute right away in a cornerback room set to lose starters Tarheeb Still and Ja’Quan Sheppard, but one that also added Bowling Green transfer Jalen Huskey.
