What exactly is Maryland Prep?
Maryland Prep is a program designed to give unrecruited athletes a platform to display and improve their skills and pursue football careers at the next level. Maryland Prep is NOT a junior college Football program. Maryland Prep is a POST-GRADUATE Football program NCAA non-qualifiers and NCAA qualifiers who want an avenue to continue to play competitive football with the ultimate goal of getting recruited at D1, D2, D3, or NAIA level. Maryland Prep will provide SAT/ACT prep and grade replacement (certain circumstances) in order to improve your ability to get recruited. Interested athletes should have played on their high school football team, or 1 year on the college level.
At Maryland Prep athletes should expect to improve knowledge of the game, increase speed, agility and strength, and develop position specific skills. Additionally, athletes will learn important life and study skills, all to become a more attractive college prospect.
Will I lose any college eligibility if I play at Maryland Prep? No, as long as you do not attend college fulltime. You would participate in our program for three months and still have five years to play four years of college football. You would be considered a 2020 college prospect that could enter into college as early as January 2020. If you attend community college fulltime you will need to maintain a 2.5 GPA and will use some of your NCAA eligibility. Maryland Prep has opened this opportunity up for student athletes immediately out of high school, athletes who spent one year in college and are now enrolled in a community college, and athletes enrolled in Maryland Community Colleges to continue their football aspirations.
Our first annual season starts FALL 2019 against Junior Varsity College or University football teams. This will give participating student athletes an opportunity to showcase their skills against college level football players. We will have at least a 7-game competitive season. (See preliminary 2019 schedule under schedule tab). Interested athletes should email us and attend information sessions in December.
The state of Maryland has created a Community College Promise Scholarship program to help eligible students afford community college. Basic program elements are outlined at Maryland Association of Community Colleges (Link). More detailed information will become available when the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) develops the regulations. The Governor will appropriate $15 million in FY2020 and each year thereafter for Maryland Community College Promise Scholarships. The program will begin in the 2019-2020 academic year.
