Two months after securing a top-20 recruiting class, D.J. Durkin’s staff is back to work. Maryland received a commitment on Wednesday from four-star quarterback Tyler DeSue, the junior announced at a ceremony.
The Bishop Sullivan product is now the second commit of the class of 2018 for Maryland, joining three-star defensive end Durell Nchami.

With the commitment from DeSue, Maryland’s 2018 class ranking jumped up 23 spots to the no. 55 recruiting class in the country, according to 247 Composite Team Rankings.
DeSue is the 12th ranked dual-threat quarterback and the eighth best player in Virginia, according to 247 Composite Rankings.
The Virginia Beach native becomes the second four-star quarterback to commit to the Terrapins in as many classes, joining St. John’s product Kasim Hill, who might see some action this fall. Before Hill’s commitment, Maryland had not landed a four-star signal caller since 2006.
