Maryland football has officially landed three-star edge rusher Dillan Fontus, who signed with the Terps on Wednesday. The team officially announced the signing on Instagram.
With a six-foot-five, 245-pound frame, Fontus is a talented rusher than can play on both the outside and inside of the defensive line. Fontus played high school football at Canarsie, a public school in Brooklyn, New York.
Fontus is the 94th-best edge rusher in the country and the third-best player out of New York, according to the 247Sports Composite.
Fontus received offers from 19 schools, including Indiana, Illinois and Nebraska before he committed to Maryland in July.
