Maryland football recruiting news is about to heat up.
This Wednesday, four-star quarterback Tyler DeSue will announce his commitment. He hasn’t posted a list of top schools, but you can bet Maryland’s in it.
(The “my bad” is because he said Thursday in his original announcement.)
Update: he’s announced his time and place:
Everyone try to come out to my commitment ceremony on Wednesday April 12th. It will be held at Bishop Sullivan at 2:30— Tyler Damon DeSue (@DeSueTd3) April 11, 2017
Maryland looks like its in the driver’s seat for DeSue. He unofficially visited College Park in late March, and 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions that he’d come to Maryland flew in after that. Devin Leary, the team’s other quarterback recruit, committed to NC State, making DeSue the clear front-runner here.
DeSue attends Bishop Sullivan High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the same school as 2017 Maryland signees Tahj Capehart and Breyon and Brandon Gaddy. The 247Sports Composite ranks him as the No. 12 dual-threat quarterback in the 2018 class, and the No. 8 player in his home state.
UCF and West Virginia appear to be the other major players in his recruitment. We’ll have updates as they come out.
