Maryland football picked up a recruiting victory over the weekend as three-star receiver Ryan Manning — the 13th-ranked recruit in Maryland in the class of 2023 according to the 247Sports Composite — announced his commitment to Mike Locksley’s team on Twitter Saturday.

Manning, who attends St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, is the fourth commit in the Terps’ 2023 class, joining fellow three-stars in quarterback Robert “Champ” Long, wide receiver Nasir Addison, and offensive lineman and Owings Hills, Maryland native Tamarus Walker.

The five-foot-11, 170-pound prospect fielded offers from 15 schools, with Big Ten rivals Penn State and Minnesota cracking his top five list. Despite a late visit with the Gophers last week, the 110th receiver in the 2023 class ultimately decided to stay local with the Terps.

As a junior, Manning finished his 2021 campaign with 39 catches, 1,001 yards and 13 touchdowns to help lead Bowie High School to an 8-3 record. Following the season, he transferred to St. Frances Academy, where he will play his final year beginning this fall.
