Maryland football has received tight end Andrew Park’s National Letter of Intent, and he’ll join the team next season.
Park became the Terps’ first commit for the Class of 2017 back in March, on the day of his official visit, and he never wavered. He wasn’t rated on most major recruiting sites at the time, but he is now a consensus three-star prospect.
In his senior season at Lake Braddock (Va.), Park led the Bruins with 343 yards on 21 catches and was an all-state selection. He’s the No. 31 prospect in the state and the nation’s No. 49 tight end, per the 247Sports Composite.
Park is the only tight end commit in the class, but the Terps will return plenty of talent at the position. Derrick Hayward will be a senior, and he’ll be complemented by Avery Edwards, Andrew Isaacs and Noah Barnes. The 6’5 Park might not factor into that mix right away, but he should have an impact down the road.
