Maryland football earned its 20th commitment in the class of 2024 on Tuesday when offensive lineman Davon Watkins announced his decision to play for the Terps.

Watkins, listed at 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds, is currently in his senior year at St. Mary’s High School in Annapolis, Maryland. Watkins is an unranked prospect, per the 247Sports Composite.

Last season, Watkins was an all-conference and all-state selection. He also fielded offers from Temple, Akron and Toledo, among others.

With his commitment, the Terps have now earned pledges from eight offensive linemen in next year’s class.
