Terps land double-commitment from Gaddy twins

Bishop Sullivan Catholic (VA) defensive tackles Brandon and Breyon Gaddy committed to Maryland Sunday night, Brandon announced on his Twitter account.

Brandon, a three-star recruit, is the No. 47 defensive tackle and Virginia’s No. 18 ranked player, according to the 247SportsComposite.

His twin brother Breyon, a four-star recruit, is ranked as the nation’s No. 19 defensive tackle and the No. 15 player in Virginia by the 247SportsComposite.

The twins are a package deal and plan to play together in college. The pair originally committed to Tennessee on July 19 before they reopened their recruitment on Nov. 29. Following their official visit to Maryland this weekend the two decided College Park was the place for them. They do not plan on taking any more official visits, 247Sports reports.

The Gaddy twins bring Maryland’s verbal commitment total to 24. The dual-commitment brings the Terps’ Class of 2017 up to No. 15 in the nation and third in the Big Ten, according to the 247Sports team rankings.

Breyon and Brandon fill a position of great need for Maryland, whose run defense was putrid this season. They’ll join Cam Spence, Lawtez Rogers, and B’Ahmad Miller as defensive linemen in Maryland’s Class of 2017.
