Maryland recruiting: Brock Ruble commits to Florida State

247sports

Maryland loses out on another DeMatha prospect.

2014 three-star prospect Brock Ruble, a hulking offensive lineman from local DeMatha, has committed to Florida State, continuing Maryland's recent drought with the local powerhouse.

Ruble picked the Seminoles over Maryland and NC State, although he also held offers from Ohio State, Wisconsin, Tennessee and Florida, among others.

It's not a huge loss for the Terps -- at 6'8" and 315 pounds, Ruble certainly has an excellent frame for a Big Ten tackle, but he's considered a project, especially technique-wise. Maryland already has a large group of offensive lineman coming in -- Jared Cohen, Larry Mazyck, Brendan Moore and Derwin Gray -- and are hoping to bring in five-star DC tackle Damian Prince, as well.

As to what this means for Maryland's status with Prince? I wouldn't read too much into it, but it certainly couldn't hurt. What it does mean, however, is Randy Edsall's staff does not have the desired relationship with DeMatha -- the only player on Maryland's roster from the school is walk-on defensive back Michael Washington.
