DJ Durkin’s next recruiting class is taking shape fast.
Tuesday morning, three-star receiver Brian Cobbs committed to Maryland. One day later, three-star offensive tackle Spencer Anderson has joined him in the Class of 2018.
InsideMdSports was first to report the commitment, which Anderson confirmed to Testudo Times.
The 6’5, 270-pound tackle quickly rose up the Terps’ recruiting board after their May 17 offer. Anderson, who’s from District Heights and attends Bishop McNamara in Forestville, Maryland, is the 10th commit from the DMV in this now-12-man class. Durkin and his staff are turning “The Movement” into reality right before our eyes. With Anderson and four-star tackle Jaelyn Duncan on board, the Terps can focus all their recruiting efforts on another four-star tackle from Maryland—North Point’s Rasheed Walker.
We just found out about Anderson’s commitment now, but offensive line coach Tyler Bowen has seemed pretty excited about something for quite a few days now.
Anderson is a long, athletic tackle who played both ways in high school. His highlight tape is mostly filled with defensive highlights, but his mobility and strength are still evident.
Cobbs’ commitment moved Maryland into the top 25 of 247Sports’ team rankings, and now Anderson’s has moved the Terps all the way up to No. 20. There’s a long way until National Signing Day, but a second top-25 class in a row would mark the first back-to-back top-25 classes in program history.
