Three-star edge rusher Terrance Butler Jr. made his commitment to Maryland football official Wednesday, signing his letter of intent.
Butler’s 6’3, 220-pound stature allows him to play the hybrid position of a defensive end and a linebacker. He is skilled at rushing the passer and covering the run. His speed allows him to make plays all over the field.
The Baltimore native has a grade of 0.8540 from the 247Sports Composite, ranking as the No. 52 defensive end in the 2021 class and the No. 25 player in the state of Maryland.
Before he announced his commitment to Maryland on June 1, Butler also had FIU, Tennessee, Michigan State, Syracuse and Minnesota in his top-six.
With his decision to stay close to home, Butler is one of three commits in the class of 2021 from St. Frances Academy along with fellow defensive end ZionAngelo Shockley and tight end Joseph Bearns.
Butler will be in good defensive company as four-star weak-side defensive end Demeioun Robinson and four-star defensive tackles Taize Johnson and Tommy Akingbesote are committed to the Terps as well.
The trio from St. Frances Academy, along with Robinson, Johnson and Akingbesote, are four out of the 13 signees in the class of 2021 hailing from the DMV.
