Maryland has picked up some extra help along the defensive line, as 2015 Worcester Academy (Mass.) defensive Oseh Saine has committed to the Terps, per Ryan Snyder of Rivals. Saine, who originally signed with Boston College in the Class of 2014, could enroll early and participate in spring practice.

After an academic issue forced Saine to postpone his enrollment until the spring semester, the prospect and Boston College split ways. Maryland offered Saine in early January, instantly earning an official visit from him, and it was clear from that point he would likely end up in College Park. He joins four-star Maryland prospect Adam McLean, three-star Maryland prospect Keiron Howard and three-star Texas prospect Mbi Tanyi as Maryland's 2015 commitments along the defensive line.
A Maryland native, Saine spent much of his childhood in Gambia. He's a high-ceiling prospect with a 6'4, 265-pound (ESPN lists him at 295) frame, and could end up making an impact on a defensive line unit that desperately needs more bodies. Saine was rated a two-star prospect in 2014 by the 247Sports Composite, ranking as the 141st-best strong-side defensive end in the country and the 20th-best player in the state of Massachusetts.
