This is a deep class of local offensive linemen and Will McClain's decision to sign his National Letter of Intent with Maryland on Wednesday is another step in ensuring that group comes together on National Signing Day.
McClain, a three-star tackle from Middletown High School, is one of at least four local offensive linemen expected to sign with the Terrapins on Wednesday, joining fellow Marylanders Ellis McKennie and E.J. Donahue and Washingtonian Quarvez Boulware. Four-star tackle Isaiah Prince could also join UMD at some point during NSD. McClain ranks as the No. 144 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 33 player in the state of Maryland by the 247Sports Composite.
The 6-foot-5, 290-pound McClain already has excellent size and will likely have a season to redshirt, especially, if Prince signs with the Terps. But with those physical tools, his potential is enormous. Down the road, McClain has a chance to be a key component on a young offensive line in College Park.
Here's a brief highlight package from McClain's senior year at Middletown:
McClain wasn't the most hotly sought-after recruit, but West Virginia was one of three other schools to offer the offensive lineman. McClain is considered the No. 36 prospect in Maryland by the 247sports composite.
