E.J. Donahue commits to Maryland

Joe Robbins

The Terps start working on the 2015 class.

Maryland received good news after their loss to Clemson Saturday, as they received their first 2015 commitment -- three/four star offensive guard E.J. Donahue, he announced on his Twitter account.

Donahue, listed at 6'5" and 330 pounds, adds some much needed size to the Terrapin interior, and joins a group of star linemen coming into the program over the next two years.

The Lignanore star had long been a Maryland lean, but it's a big get for the Terps, who desperately need help on the offensive line as they move to the Big Ten. He is rated as the 22nd-best offensive guard in the country, and the 12th-best player in Maryland by the 247sports composite.

In the 2014 class alone, Maryland has commitments from Jared Cohen, Brendan Moore, Derwin Gray and Larry Mazyck, and are still pursuing local stars Damian Prince and Brock Ruble.

Donahue reportedly benches 400 pounds, and will help to shore up that Maryland offensive line, which has struggled consistently throughout this season. In two years, the Terrapin line will likely be unrecognizable (it might even be next year, with possibly three new starters and a position change for Mike Madaras), and this is another important step to long term depth.

Here's a highlight tape:
