Maryland football has received Kasim Hill’s National Letter of Intent.
The four-star quarterback who spent his senior season at St. John’s College High School after transferring from Gilman (Baltimore) could compete for playing time right away. Maryland lost oft-injured starter Perry Hills to graduation, so Hill will be in the conversation, along with transfer Caleb Henderson and sophomores Tyrrell Pigrome and Max Bortenschlager, for the starting job.
Hill verbally committed to Maryland in April, dropping his bomb the day after defensive tackle Cam Spence dropped his. (This was back during the era of recruits committing on Periscope.)
His recruiting profile has only increased since that commitment, but he never publicly showed any signs of straying from Maryland. Hill was the 247Sports Composite’s No. 13 pro-style quarterback when he committed, but he’s now at No. 10. He impressed enough people during his senior season that he snagged an invite to the Under Armour All-America game.
Maryland lost four-star quarterback Dwayne Haskins to Ohio State in the previous recruiting cycle, and Hill looks the part of a capable replacement. He has the arm and the wheels for Walt Bell’s offense.
Maryland’s using videos of famous alums to welcome these recruits. Here’s fellow St. John’s grad and Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank welcoming Hill:
