On June 1, head coach Mike Locksley added yet another impressive name to the 2021 recruiting class for the Terps. Three star defensive end Terrance Butler announced a verbal commitment to Maryland, which once again illustrates Locksley’s ability to bring in local talent and hopefully build a fence around the DMV as far as recruitment goes. As a result of Butler’s commitment, the Terps now have 16 players in their 2021 recruiting class with 14 coming from the DMV area.
Butler had 11 total offers, with Maryland being the closest one to home. The 10 others consisted of Boston College, Florida International, Michigan, Michigan State, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Tennessee, Liberty, Charlotte and Syracuse. Additionally, Butler is ranked as the 25th best player in the state of Maryland and the 52nd best defensive end in the country, according to 24/7 sports. While Butler is only a verbal, he is a hard commit which means he is not actively considering other offers or teams.
The Terps currently have eight defensive ends on their roster for this upcoming season, and three recruits coming in at the position for the 2021 cycle. With only one of those players on the current team being a senior, Brett Kulka, it looks to be a crowded future at the defensive end position for Maryland.
