The Terps land one of their three remaining targets.

Less than a month after reportedly verbally committing to Maryland, Quarvez Boulware has made his final decision. The local offensive lineman committed to the Terrapins early Tuesday evening on television, choosing the Terps over Florida and Wake Forest.

Boulware, a four-star interior lineman from Friendship Collegiate Academy Public Charter School in Washington, was considered a UMD lean long before he committed to the Terps in January and his signing on Wednesday solidifies a crucial part of Maryland's Class of 2015.

Boulware, who played guard as a senior at Friendship Academy and also lined up as a center during practices, is the No. 3 player from D.C. per the 247Sports Composite and is considered an important part of the Terps' movement to keep local talent home. The Terrapins have already locked up two of the top six prospects from Maryland and Washington and could add four-star tackle Isaiah Prince, the best player in Maryland, Wednesday.

At 6'3 and 283 pounds, Boulware has the size to contribute immediately at UMD, but might not have the experience desired. Boulware was a tackle until his senior season with the Knights and doesn't have any in-game experience at center. Even though the Terps will have openings at left guard and center in 2015, the Terrapins may opt to go with more experienced interior linemen in the starting lineup -- but Boulware will have an opportunity to prove himself in camp, and has the talent to make something of that opportunity.

Boulware was arguably the most important of the three remaining targets for Maryland. The Terrapins have a pressing need on the interior line, and he's a more college-ready player than fellow targets Isaiah Prince and Austrian Robinson. Here are some highlights from Boulware's senior season at Friendship:
