Peter White picks Maryland

Maryland landed its second Signing Day commitment this morning when St. John’s College (D.C.) offensive lineman Peter White faxed his letter of intent to College Park at 9:14 a.m., according to UMTerps.com.

The 6-foot-5, 340-pounder picked Maryland over offers from Miami and Tennessee. White, a four-star prospect, made official visits to College Park, Knoxville and Coral Gables. UM was White’s first offer, according to The Washington Post.

"It doesn't mean as much to you until you get your own [scholarship offer],” White told the Post. “When I got that first offer on September 1 from Maryland, I was smiling the whole day."

ESPN.com’s scouting report says White’s future is most likely as an offensive guard.

Gives good effort but just can't be a finisher or be effective as a downfield blocker carrying his current weight. Powerful coming off the ball and delivers with his hands an upper body. Can move a base technique defensive lineman off the ball but has trouble if the defender slants or angles.

Check back with Recruiting Report later for more on White.

Looks like a couple of huge late pickups for the O-Line in Klemm and White, particularly after Schlieper went elsewhere. Id say this is a nice haul for the Terps, better than in recent years.

deffinitly seems like a good class with a bunch of stand-up guys. Any word on Bradley Johnson and Caleb Porzel? According to umterps.com these are the only two guys who haven't sent in their LOI or aren't already enrolled so are there any problems or is that site just slow to refresh.

Peter,

According to Josh Barr of the Post, who is at Godd Council today, Prozel announced Maryland during his turn at the podium. I'm sure the paperwork is on the way!

Pozel runs a 4.21 folks.
