Maryland baseball earned a commitment Saturday from class of 2024 infielder and catcher Parker Corbin.

The Loveland, Ohio native originally committed to Ohio State in 2021, but decommitted in July 2022.

Listed at 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, Corbin attends Cincinnati Country Day High School. This past season, the left-handed hitter had a batting average of over .400 and an on-base percentage of close to .500.

After re-opening his recruitment, he became the No. 1 undecided recruit in the state of Ohio, per Prep Baseball Report. As well, he’s ranked as the consensus No. 1 shortstop from Ohio in his class.

Head coach Matt Swope and the Terps have now landed commitments from nine recruits in the class of 2024.
