The Maryland 2016 football recruiting class got a dose of local flavor Thursday with an oral commitment from South Carroll junior lineman Brian Plummer. After receiving his official offer Saturday at Maryland's spring game, he didn't wait long to make known his plans to play for the team he grew up watching. "It's like a dream come true for me to be offered and commit to my home team," said the 6-foot-7, 300-pound Plummer. "I'm still kind of letting it sink in." Plummer was an anchor for the line that blocked for Chris Gavin, who broke Carroll County's all-time single-season rushing record and eclipsed the 2,000-yard mark in his senior season. Plummer received interest from a number of schools over the past few months, including Clemson, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Purdue. That list could grow as his senior season approaches. Still, Plummer said despite the fact that it's only an oral commitment to the Terps, he doesn't expect that decision to change. Citing the "DMV to UMD" movement the school has coined in its pursuit of local talent, Plummer becomes the fifth commitment the Terps have secured for next year's class. "I was very impressed by their junior day, their facilities and how they're building their program," he said. "I'm happy to be a part of that." South Carroll finished 6-1 in Carroll County play last season, and 9-4 overall, and lost to Douglass-PG in the state semifinals. With his college decision behind him, Plummer said he still has a few things he'd like to work on before he heads to College Park. "For me personally, my goals are to get stronger and faster," he said. "I'm really excited about next year. I think we have a great group of guys."
