Rivals has him as a 3 star athlete, Scout has him as a 4 star safety, as already mentioned... This could very well mean that Scout just saw more of Furman, and from that, gave him an actual position, and from that, a better ranking. I know some people can play multiple positions, which is why Rivals likes to use the athlete tag, though it's easier to rank a player if you think they'll play a specific position. Scout thinks he'll be a 4 star S.

It is true that Maryland doesn't normally produce huge amounts of talent but normally they at least produce a couple 4 * recruits from schools like Dematha and some of the other private Catholic schools by D.C. Southern Maryland has produced a few good ones here and there as well...i.e. A.J. Wallace and Larry Johnson.
