Class of 2023 offensive lineman Tamarus Walker announced his commitment to play for head coach Mike Locksley and Maryland football via Twitter on Sunday.

Walker, who currently plays at McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland, is a three-star recruit per the 247Sports Composite, is ranked as the 20th-best player in the state of Maryland and is the 87th-best interior offensive lineman in the country — a position that has become a priority for Locksley. After the 2022 season, the Terps will need replenishing in the trenches with the graduations of senior starters Jaelyn Duncan, Spencer Anderson and Johari Branch.

Listed at six-foot-four, 300 pounds, Walker fielded offers from a handful of other FBS schools but chose to continue his playing career in College Park following an official visit this past weekend.

“It was always my dream school,” Walker said of Maryland in an interview with “Coming into [my] official visit, they really showed me love and I felt at home there… I’m recruiting all over the DMV to help us make something special here at Maryland.”

He will not be the only McDonogh product on the Terps’ roster, joining fellow Eagles Dante Trader, Harrison Beattie and Preston Howard.

Walker is the third commitment in Locksley’s 2023 recruiting class and the first from Maryland.
