DeMatha wide receiver D.J. Turner signed his National Letter of Intent Wednesday and will officially become a Maryland Terrapin.

Turner wasn't rated by 247Sports Composite when he committed back in January 2015, but as of National Signing Day, he's the Composite has him as the No. 60 wide receiver in the class of 2016 and the No. 14 player in Maryland.

He'll join a receiving corps that underperformed last season, but will have a competitive group of young, talented players in 2016. Maryland didn't graduate any wide receivers from a class that didn't produce much last season, but the team's quarterbacks didn't give the unit much of a chance. He also had offers from Syracuse, Virginia, Army and Western Michigan.

The Orange and new head coach Dino Babers made a push for Turner late, but he said he was "100 percent committed" to the Terps on Jan. 21.
