On Saturday, junior quarterback Kasim Hill announced that he was committed to play football at the University of Maryland.
Hill is listed as a four-star by 247sports. The rising senior is ranked as the No. 2 player in Maryland and the No. 13 pro style quarterback in the country.
He had offers from schools like Syracuse, Wake Forest, Penn State, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Utah, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, and many others. Before making his college decision, Kasim took an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt, Michigan State, and Northwestern.
This is a good pick up for D.J. Durkin and the Terps since they lost quarterback Dwayne Haskins to Ohio State in the last recruiting class. Hill will join Maryland’s 2017 recruiting class that features four-star defensive tackle Cam Spence. The IMG Academy prospect and former Gilman (MD.) standout committed to the Terps a couple of days ago. Tight end Andrew Park and cornerback Fofie Bazzie also pledged to Maryland.
Maryland is still trying to bring in more local players like running back Anthony McFarland (DeMatha, MD), defensive lineman Chase Young (DeMatha, MD), wide receiver Cameron Sullivan-Brown (St. Vincent Pallotti, MD), offensive tackle Jordan McNair (McDonough, MD) and quarterback Lindell Stone (Woodberry Forest, VA).
Kasim Hill will be playing football for St. John’s College High School for the 2016 season after spending time at Gilman School in Baltimore.
