Maryland Picks Up Commitment #15: SC OL Stephen Grommer

811916_mediumWell, I'll take this is as a bit of good news after a weekend when we could all really use some: Maryland landed their 15th commitment late last night in Spartanburg, SC, offensive lineman Stephen Grommer. He picked Maryland over N.C. State, Rutgers, and ECU, which isn't a bad offer sheet.

Grommer's unranked on Scout, a three-star on Rivals, and a 77 on ESPN. His ESPN grade would make him the fourth-best or so commitment so far, which is pretty impressive. He's 6-5, 285 pounds, which is a nice frame and in line with a lot of what Maryland's done lately: use smaller, though perhaps quicker, offensive linemen.

He's also the 6th offensive line commitment of the class, including Larry Mazyck, Evan Mulrooney, Andrew Zeller, Ryan Doyle, and Nate Clarke, who prepped. That makes me think that the OL is probably done for the year unless Cyrus Kouandjio so deigns to come to College Park, which is about as likely as me playing offensive tackle for Maryland, but I'll keep the faith.

Maryland's set a nice little base for this class with the amount of linemen they've recruited, at least a few of which will inevitably turn out to be solid starters, and even landed two impact WRs in Nigel King and Marcus Leak. Now it's all about the defensive side of the ball, where the top targets are still Dondi Kirby, Blake Countess, and Travis Hughes. Close on two of those three, and the class will be mighty impressive indeed.
