Gigantic offensive tackle Larry Mazyck has decommitted from Maryland, opting instead to join James Franklin and co. at Vanderbilt.
Mazyck, listed at 6’7″ and weighing 320 pounds, was not a big-time prospect for the Terps, but was one with a lot of potential (I mean, just think about how big that is for a high school lineman). Franklin was his primary recruiter at College Park, so this makes sense.
In terms of depth, it doesn’t really hurt the Terps. At the tackle positions they already have Justin Gilbert, R.J. Dill, Pete DeSouza and Max Garcia, who all have received playing time and should compete for starting roles, and they still have Ryan Doyle and Andrew Zeller coming in at offensive tackle in 2011.
It always sucks to lose a commit, but this one will sting less than most. Best of luck to Larry at Vanderbilt and in the SEC.
