Edsall, Maryland Land Fourth Commitment: Pennsylvania QB Perry Hills

924267m_mediumWe've said that Maryland needs at least one, if not two, QBs in the 2012 class. At least the first one is in and, per Scout's Bob Lichtenfels, it's Pittsburgh quarterback Perry Hills. Hills is a three-star on Scout, though unrated on both ESPN and Rivals. The teaser to Scout's full story on the commitment implies that Hills' recruiter was Greg Gattuso, who's one of the best Pittsburgh-area recruiters and proving it. He'll be a very valuable asset for Maryland; he's also the lead for Noah Spence, a five-star DE from the area who's giving Maryland serious interest.

Hills, aside from having an awesome name, stands at 6-3 and 205 pounds. He had a smattering of other mid-major offers, like Akron, Buffalo, and Kent St., as well as the requisite interest from other, bigger programs. He has a bit of a funky release, but he shows good mobility on rollouts and has a lively arm with some juice. Video is here:


I wouldn't expect this to be the only QB commitment of the cycle. With Tyler Smith transferring to Elon, Devin Burns moving to WR, and Danny O'Brien being a legitimate early draft entrance risk, Maryland needs QBs. Hills, checking in as the #47 QB in the nation from Scout, probably isn't enough to quell all of those worries by himself.
