2-star DT Jeffery Pooler decommits from Maryland

New, comments

After committing to the Terps in May, the defensive tackle is re-opening his recruitment.

Two-star class of 2016 defensive tackle Jeffery Pooler has decommitted from Maryland, he announced on twitter Monday night.

The Ohio product committed to play for the Terps back in May, but attended camps for Ohio State and Pitt over the summer, and his decommitment comes after he unofficially visited and was offered by West Virginia last week.

Class of 2016 quarterback commit Dwayne Haskins listed Pooler as one of the 20 recruits he wanted to bring with him to Maryland.

While Pooler's decommitment leaves Maryland with five scholarships available to give out, the Terps now have zero defensive tackles committed out of the eight they offered in the class of 2016, and defensive end Joey Fisher remains the program's only other defensive line commit. The only unsigned tackles they've offered, five-stars Rashan Gary and Dexter Lawrence,  are extremely unlikely to sign with the program, as 247 Sports Crystal Ball doesn't give them even a one percent chance of signing with Maryland. The Terps' remaining options now are to either flip a commitment, like that of Gilman (Md.)'s Elllison Jordan to Penn State, or to offer someone new.
