DeMatha four-star offensive lineman became the 16th commitment in Maryland’s 2017 recruiting class when he picked the Terps on Sunday.
Minor is ranked the No. 5 player in Maryland, and the No. 13 offensive lineman in the country by 247sports. He held offers from 26 schools, but he narrowed his list down to the Terps, Auburn, Florida, Miami, Michigan State, Virginia Tech and Rutgers.
Minor will be joining other local top tier offensive linemen like Jordan McNair (McDonough) and Johnny Jordan (Gonzaga). McNair is rated a four-star, while Jordan is a three-star. Cornerback Deon Jones, quarterback Kasim Hill, defensive lineman Cam Spence, and defensive end Joshua Kaindoh makes up the third best recruiting class in the Big Ten.
Minor’s commitment continues the DeMatha to Maryland pipeline. The Terps currently have four Stags on the 2016 roster. Head Coach D.J. Durkin is still trying to bring in DeMatha’s four-star running back Anthony McFarland and five-star defensive end Chase Young even though he verbally committed to conference rival Ohio State.
