Virginia linebacker Isaiah Davis, the younger brother of Maryland standout safety Sean Davis, verbally committed to the Terrapins Tuesday night.

Davis said he called offensive coordinator Mike Locksley as Maryland wrapped up practice Tuesday night and later spoke to coach Randy Edsall.

“For one, being close to home [was appealing] and having my family being there,” Davis said during a phone interview. “Playing in the Big Ten, there’s a lot of competition in that conference, and having the opportunity to play with my brother on the same team [was attractive].”

Davis is 6-foot-1, 215 pounds and said he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds.
