Maryland football landed its fourth commit in the Class of 2019 Monday evening when three-star Mallard Creek (NC) offensive tackle Parker Moorer announced his intentions to be a Terp.
Moorer is the No. 33 overall prospect in North Carolina. He’s rated as the No. 51 strong-side defensive end in the class, per the 247Sports Composite rankings, but he’ll be an offensive tackle at Maryland. Offensive line coach Bryan Stinespring was his lead recruiter. The 6’5, 265-pounder is the first offensive lineman to commit in this class after the Terps took four last cycle.
With Moorer in the fold, Maryland jumps six spots from No. 48 to No. 42 in the 247Sports team rankings. The Terps will look to keep the ball rolling on the offensive line with four-star junior college offensive tackle Anthony Whigan and three-star offensive tackle Kaleb Boateng from Florida.
Moorer visited Maryland early this month and was being courted by other relatively local schools, most notably Louisville, Temple and West Virginia. West Virginia and East Carolina were his other two finalists.
