Maryland football obtained a commitment Sunday from three-star offensive tackle Samir Camacho.
Listed at 6-foot-3.5 and 281 pounds, Camacho is the sixth offensive tackle in the class of 2024 to pledge to play for the Terps. He attends Cypress Falls High School in Houston, Texas, where he was named to the 6A All-District 16 first team as a junior. His team went 7-3 in the regular season before falling in the second round of the state playoffs.
Camacho is ranked by 247Sports as the 85th-best offensive tackle in his class and No. 162 player from Texas. He took an official visit to College Park on June 9-11.
Camacho, who chose the Terps over finalists TCU, Duke and UTSA, became the 19th commit in Maryland’s 2024 recruiting class.
