Sean Nelson is officially part of the Maryland football program.

The wide receiver from Fairburn, Georgia has sent his National Letter of Intent in to the Terrapins, who’ve announced it on Twitter.

He committed to Maryland in May, and took his official visit to College Park in December. Nelson is part of Maryland’s influx of size at receiver. He’s one of the team’s six signees at the position. Three of Maryland’s commits are 6’2, Carlos Carriere is 6’5 and Jalen Browder is 6’3. The Terps also flipped Virginia Tech commit Tahj Capehart, who, at 5’10, is a different kind of player.

Nelson is rated higher on the 247Sports Composite than the rest of his classmates. All are classified as three-star prospects, but as the No. 92 receiver in the Class of 2017, Nelson grades out as the best.

Their didn’t seem to be much action in his recruitment after he committed to Maryland, but a late offer by Virginia Tech made things interesting. Nelson took an official visit to Virginia Tech this weekend, but it evidently wasn’t enough to sway him.
