National Signing Day 2017: 4-star OT Jordan McNair signs with Maryland football

The Terps secure a promising offensive tackle.

Jordan McNair committed to Maryland football in April, and that pledge is now official.

The four-star offensive tackle is ranked 29th at his position and seventh in Maryland by the 247Sports Composite. The McDonogh product was a two-time First Team All-Metro selection by the Baltimore Sun, and was the only repeat honoree on this year’s first-team offense.

McNair was one of the program’s earliest commitments in the class, announcing just hours after Maryland’s spring game. He received an offer from Alabama four days later, but never wavered on his commitment.

He’s one of two four-star offensive line commits in Maryland’s class, joining DeMatha guard Marcus Minor (they also bring in three-star center Johnny Jordan). The Terps should have a talented group up front in 2017, with only Michael Dunn graduating from last season.

Derwin Gray and Damian Prince figure to be Maryland’s starting offensive tackles next year, but with a strong camp, McNair could push one or both of them for playing time.
