Offensive lineman Mike Madaras withdrew from Maryland in late October, saying in a statement that he lacked the desire to play football or be enrolled in school at that time.

Three months later, Madaras appears to have had a change of heart and will enroll at the University of Albany, his former high school program, Good Counsel (Md.), announced via Twitter on Sunday morning.

The announcement comes shortly after his brother, Sam, an offensive lineman who just finished playing his senior season at Good Counsel, committed to Albany as well.

Reeling in both Madaras brothers marks an early victory for former Maryland offensive line coach Greg Gattuso, who is now the head coach at Albany. He left College Park to take the head job in New York at the end of Maryland's 2013 season.

The elder Madaras was a four-star recruit coming out of high school, according to, and will now join with 6-3, 325-pound brother on Albany's offensive line.
