Inside the Bag: Maryland football adds key July commits to 2024 class

Welcome back for another episode of Inside the Bag as we delve into Maryland football’s latest three commitments in July.


St. Vincent Pallotti (MD) three-star offensive tackle Ryan Howerton opted for Maryland over West Virginia and Pitt, giving the Terps another key building block in the trenches as the staff reloads the offensive line heading into 2024.

Howerton becomes the latest piece in the trenches as Maryland is now up to six commitments along the offensive line this summer, but are there more coming? Plus, we break down how Maryland kept Howerton home.

Four-star safety Brandon Jacob kept the buzz going, going public with his pledge just five days later as Maryland secured its signature pledge this cycle. Jacob committed to Maryland over UCF, Texas A&M and Miami (FL) and silently committed one month ago.

How did the Terps beat out elite talent for the Florida four-star? We break down why Jacob and his family were so comfortable canceling their official visit to Coral Gables in favor of honoring their commitment to the Terps.

Last by not least, Highland Springs (VA) three-star quarterback Khristian Martin became the latest to announce his commitment to Maryland, picking the Terps over Virginia. How does the dual-threat quarterback fit into Maryland football’s offense? We dive into how he landed in College Park and what it means for the 2024 cycle.

With now 17 verbal commitments heading into August, where does Maryland stand heading into the fall and which targets are the primary names to know? We break down all the targets to know, where things stand and more.
