Maryland football has its fourth commitment in the Class of 2020.
St. Frances (Md.) offensive lineman Ja’Khi Green announced his commitment on Twitter on Saturday. The 6-foot-6, 320-pound junior chose the Terps over offers from West Virginia, Kent State and Kansas, becoming the second offensive lineman in their class and breaking a drought at Baltimore powerhouse St. Frances.
A three-star prospect rated the No. 37 player in Maryland, Green has visited multiple times this year.
“Maryland has always been high for me just because it’s the hometown school and a school I could always see myself at,” Green told Scout last month. “But just what they’re doing now, with Coach Locks, he’s putting Maryland back in the conversation with not just me, but recruits all over the place.”
Green’s commitment bumps Maryland’s class up seven spots nationally, to No. 45, and two spots in the Big Ten rankings, to No. 10.

“When I got the offer from Maryland I was very, very happy. It was kind of surreal, to be honest. Growing up watching Maryland, and knowing guys that go there, it was really cool and surreal to get the offer. And I finally had a chance to visit, and I loved it,” he told Scout.
