Tyrone Hill commits to Maryland: Terrapins add 3-star cornerback

The Terrapins add a player at a position of need from one of the best high school programs in New Jersey.

Maryland added an important piece to its 2016 class Thursday, adding a second cornerback to join Travon Stott. Don Bosco (N.J.) defensive back Tyrone Hill announced his commitment to the Terrapins on Twitter, choosing Maryland over Pitt.

The 6'0 190-pound cornerback is a three-star prospect who ranks as the No. 127 cornerback in the Class of 2016 and the No. 36 player in the state of New Jersey according to the 247Sports Composite.

Hill now joins Travon Stott as the second cornerback in the class. Four-star Avalon (Md.) athlete Trevon Diggs is perhaps the most important target left, and he can play either cornerback or wide receiver at Maryland. He's the 13th commitment in Maryland's 2016 class, and the first from New Jersey.

Looking at film from his junior season at Don Bosco, Tyrone Hill is a shutdown corner and always has his hands on the ball whether he's swatting it away or intercepting it.

Another thing to notice is how he b-lines to the ball when it's not near him in order to make a tackle. He always wants to be involved in the play somehow. The Terps could also use him on special teams because he is aggressive when he's running down the field in punt and kick return coverage.
