Terps Land 14th Commitment in Ga. QB Devin Burns

Yep, the recruiting class is continuing it's kind of slow-moving recovery, but recovery nonetheless. Via the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer:

It didn't take long for Carver quarterback Devin Burns to find a fitting replacement for Georgia.

The rising senior committed to Maryland during a visit to the College Park, Md.-campus on Saturday, according to Carver coach Dell McGee.

The 6-2, 170-pound Burns made his decision less than two weeks after Georgia withdrew its scholarship offer, leading McGee to declare Georgia was no longer welcome at Carver

I'm surprised to see that we took another QB. My first though, especially upon seeing him listed as an athlete, was that he won't end up at quarterback. But I have trouble seeing an ACC level WR or CB that runs a 4.66, which is what Rivals lists him at. That said, ESPN has him at a 4.52, which isn't bad at all for another position. Consider his position firmly up in the air right now.

Anyway, Rivals and Scout both have him as three stars, which isn't bad, particularly considering his offers. First, he was good enough to get an offer from Georgia, which, even if they rescinded it, speaks volumes about his talent level. Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, and Arkansas all offered, too.

You can never have too many quarterbacks, especially athletic ones. Maryland will definitely be stacked at the position in the coming years, with four guys capable of playing the position coming in in two years.
