The Maryland football program has had a ton of success with the offensive line on the recruiting trail as of late.
On Monday evening, Alpharetta (Ga.) offensive tackle Oyenmwen Uzebu released his top five schools. His five schools consisted of Maryland, NC State, South Florida, and West Virginia.
The three-star offensive tackle had previously been a Minnesota pledge, but decommitted back on May 14. Ozebu had only been committed to the Golden Gophers for a month at the time of his decommitment.
Maryland has been in constant contact with Uzebu and has never stopped recruited him even when he committed to Minnesota, according to Ahmed Ghafir of InsideMDSports.
According to 247Sports’ Composite rankings, Uzebu is rated No. 533 and ranked as the 45th-best offensive tackle in the 2018 class. He’s also tabbed as the 52nd-best player in Georgia.
Maryland has done an impressive job on the recruiting trail in general as of late. Over the past month, the Terrapins have secured pledges from Spencer Anderson (Bishop McNamara), Raymond Boone (Eleanor Roosevelt), Brian Cobbs (Hayfield), Dontay Demus Jr. (Friendship Collegiate Academy) Jaelyn Duncan (St. Frances Academy), and Vincent Flythe (H.D. Woodson).
Flythe most recently committed to Maryland as he announced his pledge on Friday. In addition, Anderson declared his intentions to commit to the Terps on Wednesday.
The Terps have attacked the offensive line pretty heavily in the 2018 class thus far. Anderson, Duncan, and Evan Gregory (DeMatha) currently are the offensive linemen that are committed to the program.
Maryland continues to value the offensive line in the rugged Big Ten and that could lead to tremendous success down the road.
