Maryland Terrapins fans everywhere rejoiced when five-star Class of 2015 center Diamond Stone announced that he would be playing basketball in College Park next season. His commitment to the Terps should definitely provide a huge boost for the Maryland athletic program in their recruiting efforts, particularly when it comes to basketball. While the Stone commitment is easily the big story, there is still plenty else happening on the Maryland recruiting trail. Here’s the latest.

The 6’7 260-pound offensive lineman from Pennsylvania is the first out-of-state commitment in the Class of 2016. According to 247 Sports, Clark is the 70th best offensive tackle in th Class of 2016 and the 18th best player in the state of Pennsylvania. He chose the Terps over West Virginia, Wake Forest, and South Carolina. This was a big pickup for Maryland, who had a need for help on the exterior of the offensive line.
