Philly IOL Kahlil Stewart decommits from Maryland after official visit

Maryland is back down to ten commitments in the 2025 class as St. Joe’s Prep (PA) three-star IOL Kahlil Stewart backed away from his pledge on Wednesday morning.

“I want to thank God for blessing me with the ability to play this game that I love and the opportunity to continue to pursue my dreams. With that being said, I am decommitting from the University of Maryland and reopening my recruitment,” Stewart posted on X.

Stewart became the second pledge in Maryland’s class back in February as offensive coordinator Josh Gattis led the way with the 6-foot-3 lineman into the offseason. “First off when I had my first visit there I just felt the environment fit me and my family. When my family came up there with me, they felt the same way,” Stewart told IBG. “The coaching staff always had been real with me and my family. Throughout this whole recruiting process, I’ve gotten to build good relationships with people at Maryland. It was the people.”

The Philly lineman is coming off his official visit to Maryland this past weekend, while the offensive line still has one commitment in the fold in Lakeland (FL) three-star tackle Ben Beymer.

Maryland is coming off a big commitment after four-star running back Iverson Howard announced his decision with Michigan and Florida State among the schools in the mix. Maryland’s 2025 class is now filled with RBs Howard and Bud Coombs, WR Justin DeVaughn, Beymer, TE JT Taggart, DL Braheem Battles and Dante Recker, LB CJ Smith, CB Jett White and DB Julien Horton.
