D.J. Durkin and his Maryland staff lands another local blue chip talent when offensive tackle Jordan McNair announced his commitment to Maryland on Saturday.

McNair is a four-star prospect out of McDonogh High School in Owings Mills, Maryland. He is listed as the No. 3 player in Maryland, the No. 8 offensive tackle in the nation, and the No. 171 overall player by ESPN. While, 247sports got him as the No. 6 player in the area and the No. 32 offensive tackle in the country.

Before committing to Maryland, McNair had offers from big name schools like Auburn, Michigan State, Duke, Michigan, Penn State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Georgia and many others.

McNair will be joining a pretty solid Maryland offensive line that has players like Terrance Davis (DeMatha), and Richard Merritt (Archbishop Carroll) that will be coming to College Park this upcoming season.

Head coach D.J. Durkin’s first recruiting class with Maryland is shaping up pretty well. The class already has commitments from athlete Ayinde Eley (Good Counsel), quarterback Kasim Hill (St. John’s), tight end Andrew Park (Lake Braddock) and defensive tackle Cam Spence (IMG Academy).

McNair’s pledge to Maryland makes the Terps have the No. 24 recruiting class in the country and the No. 7 class in the Big Ten. He also becomes the third four-star recruit Maryland has landed.
