For the second time in four days, Maryland football has added a new member to its Class of 2019. Defensive end Deshawn Holt made the call for the Terps Monday night.
The 6’5, 225-pound defensive end is the eighth member of Maryland’s Class of 2019. Five of the Terps’ eight commits are from the DMV.
Holt joins cornerback Deonte Banks, who committed Friday of last week, as the newest members of the Terps’ class. Neither Holt nor Banks have ratings on any recruiting sites, but they should start receiving some soon.
Holt, who goes to Westlake High School in Waldorf, Maryland, is the first defensive lineman to join the class, though fellow Waldorf resident and outside linebacker Kam Blount may play some BUCK for Maryland.
The Terps’ Class of 2019 is ranked No. 65 in the country, per the 247Sports team rankings, though that number should rise when Holt and Banks are rated. He chose Maryland over Rutgers and Temple, among others.
