Follow along as we update this with the day’s events.

It’s DJ Durkin’s second National Signing Day as Maryland football’s head coach, and he’s about to reel in what looks like it’ll be the program’s best class since they started measuring these things

Maryland already has 21 players verbally committed. However, none of these will be official until the team receives each player’s National Letter of Intent. That’s in addition to the seven scholarship players in the class who already enrolled early and are taking classes in College Park.

This shouldn’t be a particularly surprising day for Maryland fans, but that doesn’t mean a decommitment from or to the Terps is out of the question. Maryland’s only waiting on one announcement from an uncommitted prospect. That’s four-star cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields, who’s revealing his decision at 2 p.m on MaxPreps.

Update: Maryland has flipped three-star Virginia Tech wide receiver commit Tahj Capehart.

BIGGER UPDATE: four-star Tennessee running back Cordarrian Richardson verbally committed to the Terps in a wild video. If he qualifies, this is big.

Update: Castro-Fields committed to Penn State.

Update to the bigger update: Richardson signed with UCF.

Also at 2, Durkin will be holding a press conference. I’ll be there.

Here’s each player verbally committed to Maryland. We’ll update this as the letters come in (or don’t).
