Local defensive end B'Ahmad Miller committed to Maryland football following the Terps’ 50-7 homecoming win Saturday night, he announced Sunday on Twitter.
Im extremely blessed to say I am committed to the University of Maryland 〽️ ‼️ #TheMovement pic.twitter.com/Bf97NFiD4E— Bahmad miller (@BahmadMiller) October 2, 2016
Miller is the No. 15 recruit in Maryland and the No. 31 strong-side defensive end in the class of 2017, according to the 247Sports Composite. He’s Maryland’s third defensive line commit in the class, joining Joshua Kaindoh and Cam Spence.
Kaindoh and Spence were both on campus this weekend, which could have helped coax his commitment.
Miller, from Elkton, Md., attends St. Frances Academy in Baltimore. With his commitment, 10 of Maryland’s 17 commits are from Maryland or D.C.
Miller has a bit of a low recruiting profile. He only had six offers, and Illinois was the only other Big Ten school to extend him one.
Maryland loses defensive end Roman Braglio after this season and is light on defensive ends with experience, so this is a good time to restock the position.
