Maryland’s football recruiting class rankings: Terps impressing in first Big Ten class

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland ranks above two Big Ten powers.

The depth chart of Maryland's future continues to grow each day as more and more top prospects commit to the Terrapins.

The Terrapins' class currently ranks 26th in the nation and fifth in the Big Ten. Penn State takes the conference lead, with Northwestern a surprising second, Wisconsin third, Ohio State fourth and then the Terps (above Nebraska and Michigan).

The highest rated players in this year’s class are Frederick, Md. native E.J. Donahue, Sicklerville, N.J. star Kareem Ali and Oxon Hill, Md. standout Keiron Howard.

Via the 247sports composite, Donahue ranks as the 19th-best offensive guard nationally in the 2015 class, and ranks 7th among all players in Maryland. Timber Creek High School star Ali ranks 37th nationally in the corner back position, and as the 12th-best player in the state of New Jersey. Potomac High School standout and three-star defensive lineman Howard tops off Maryland’s top recruits. He ranks 54th in the nation at the defensive tackle position, and is considered the 20th-best player in the state of Maryland.

Massaponax (Va.) linebacker Gus Little trails not too far behind Howard, with Darnell Savage, Gage Shaffer and Ty Johnson are rated right behind him. Five of the Terps' commits hail from the state of Maryland, with Florida and Texas the only other states with multiple commits.
