Maryland football had a busy recruiting weekend, and it didn’t end when twins Breyon and Brandon Gaddy committed Sunday night.
A few hours later, another Virginian joined the Terps’ 2017 recruiting class. Courtland native Tyran Hunt announced his commitment on Twitter, becoming the 25th member of the class.
Once again, my supporters means everything to me. Much love to y'all. With that being said let's get it! You either with me or in my way pic.twitter.com/UlrU4wWLCR— Tyran Hunt (@tyranjhunt) December 12, 2016
Hunt is either a defensive end or an offensive tackle, and Maryland could use him at either spot. 247Sports lists him at both positions, while Scout has him just as an OT. He stands at a towering 6’7, which gives Maryland’s strength and conditioning staff a lot to work with. He ranks as the No. 57 strong-side defensive end in the class of 2017 and the No. 32 player in Virginia on the 247Sports Composite.
Hunt is the third offensive lineman to commit to Maryland in this recruiting cycle, joining four-star tackle Jordan McNair and three-star center Johnny Jordan. He chose the Terps over Virginia and Syracuse.
He’s likely to redshirt his first collegiate season. Most offensive line recruits do, and Maryland’s likely to field a line consisting of four blue-chip recruits in 2017 and beyond. The program will have time for Hunt to develop.
