Maryland football got good news on perhaps its top offensive recruiting target in the 2023 class on Sunday. Virginia receiver Cameron Seldon included the Terps in his top threealong with Penn State and Tennessee.
The news comes as no surprise for Maryland, which has long made the Northumberland (Va.) star a top priority. He visited College Park two weeks ago for an official visit.
“I learned the standard about Maryland, and what they’re all about … My mom, dad, stepmom, godmother and my siblings came and they thought the visit was good. They had a great time,” he told 247Sports’ Brian Dohn. “They were cool. Overall, it was a great experience. Being my first official visit, it was nice and I like what they have to offer.”
Seldon is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 24 player and No. 3 athlete in the country. He’s often listed as a receiver, but could also be a star on the defensive side of the ball in college. At 6-1, 220 pounds, he runs a blazing 10.74 seconds in the 100 meters.

He’ll visit Penn State this weekend after he visited Tennessee last weekend.
“It was good…The people (stood out). They were real, not too overly excited. It just felt normal,” he told Ryan Callahan of GoVols247. “The vibes, they were good. It was cool.”
Michigan, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and a long list of others have offered Seldon, who lives in the same area of Virginia that produced former Maryland star receiver Torrey Smith.
247Sports projects Seldon as a second-to-third-round pick. His socouting report:
“Unverified size but looks and plays big. Dynamic high school playmaker who projects to receiver, but could legitimately play several different positions in the future. Got snaps at QB, receiver, cornerback, safety, and kick returner as a sophomore. Quantifiable athleticism that clearly manifests on the field. Ran a 10.81 100 and a 22.20 200 during sophomore track season. Flashes great acceleration and long speed. Shows terrific run-after-catch ability and run strength. Limited sophomore sample size (abbreviated three-game spring season) Faces lower level of competition. defensive back-seven position could also fit quite well.”
