Durkin and his staff has done a terrific job recruiting players. This is a huge step toward building a competitive team. Maybe even a powerhouse in a couple of years.
12. Maryland Terrapins
D.J. Durkin's crew was one of the biggest surprises in the entire country. The Terps have nine four-star commits, all but one of them from the all-important "DMV" recruiting area of D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Offensive linemen Marcus Minor and Jordan McNair along with quarterback Kasim Hill are the headliners on offense. Two 6-foot-2 defensive backs, Deon Jones and Markquese Bell, are the highest-ranked commits on defense. Running back Cordarrian Richardson from Tennessee was a major addition on Signing Day as was four-star Virginia Tech wide receiver flip Tahj Capehart. Full class list.
Here's the complete list. Very impressive.
