Maryland notched another commitment Saturday when three-star wide receiver Sean Nelson of Langston Hughes High School in Fairburn, Ga., announced his commitment to the Terps.
"I would like to thank every school that gave me this opportunity to come play football and represent their program," Nelson wrote on Twitter. "But with that being said I am blessed and honored enough to say I am committing to the University of Maryland!"
Nelson is the No. 83 wide receiver nationally and the No. 57 player in Georgia, according to the 247sports.com composite rankings. He's rated as a three-star recruit by 247sports.com and Rivals.com and he's unrated by Scout.com and ESPN. He's listed at 6 feet 2 and 180 pounds.
Nelson held offers from 15 schools, according to 247sports.com, including Arizona, West Virginia, Louisville and Indiana. Maryland had five players from Georgia on its roster last season.
Nelson is the first commit in Maryland's Class of 2017 without local ties to the Terps. Five of Maryland's oral commits attend high school in the "DMV" while five-star defensive end Joshua Kaindoh and four-star defensive tackle Cam Spence of IMG Academy in Florida attended Mount Carmel and Gilman, respectively, for their first two years of high school.
Maryland now has eight commits in its Class of 2017. The class is now ranked No. 6 in the Big Ten Conference and No. 17 nationally, according to the 247sports.com composite rankings.
