DeMatha four-star guard Terrance Davis commits to Maryland

DeMatha offensive guard Terrance Davis announced his commitment to Maryland during the Under Armour All-America Game on Saturday afternoon, giving the Terps their second big-time offensive line commit in just more than two weeks.

Davis is rated as a four-star recruit by the four major services and one of the top players in the nation at his position. He picked Maryland over Michigan and Florida. Four-star guard Richard Merritt of Archbishop Carroll committed to Maryland on Dec. 18.

Davis becomes Maryland's fourth commitment from prep powerhouse DeMatha in the Class of 2016, joining four-star wide receiver Tino Ellis — who also played in the Under Armour All-America Game — three-star running back Lorenzo Harrison and three-star wide receiver D.J. Turner.

Maryland now has six commits along the offensive line, with Davis, Merritt, Pennsylvania tackle Michael Clark, Ohio tackle Terek Zingale, South Carroll tackle Brian Plummer and Ohio tackle Alex Hall.

The Terps are losing three starters from the offensive line to graduation, but touted tackles Damian Prince and Derwin Gray just completed their redshirt freshman seasons and former four-star recruit Quarvez Boulware sat out the season.

When Davis committed, his mother held up Maryland flag gloves and he said he was making his decision "for the next three or four years."

Davis is Maryland coach DJ Durkin's second commit since he was hired nearly a month ago. He's also the third Maryland commit after former coach Randy Edsall was fired on Oct. 11.
