Maryland's latest commitment will be a familiar name to Terps football recruiting followers. Larry Mazyck, a 6-foot-7, 340-pound offensive tackle, committed to Maryland in March 2010 but didn't end up in College Park.
Tyler Burke chose Maryland over Boston College, Connecticut, Massachusetts, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and Wisconsin.
Brett Kulka, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive lineman from Edinboro, Pa., recorded 54 tackles (27 assisted) and seven sacks this past season for General McLane and committed to Maryland football
Andrew Gray of Chardon (Ohio) High, ranked the 47th-best tight end nationally and 76h-best recruit in Ohio by 247Sports, chose Maryland over offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Louisville, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan.
