Four-star quarterback Tyler DeSue committed to the Maryland football team Wednesday, becoming the second commit in coach DJ Durkin’s 2018 class.
His pledge marks the second-straight year the Terps have secured a four-star quarterback. They also snagged pro-style signal-caller Kasim Hill (St. John’s), who will be a freshman this season.

DeSue, who played at Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School in Virginia, is the nation’s 12th-best dual-threat quarterback in 2018 according to 247sports. He’s also the No. 8 recruit in the state.
But when DeSue arrives in College Park, he’ll likely join a crowded quarterback situation.
In addition to sophomores Tyrrell Pigrome and Max Bortenschlager, who each started a game last year, Maryland welcomes Hill and fellow freshman quarterback Ryan Brand, a three-star recruit. Junior Caleb Henderson, a North Carolina transfer who sat out last season, will also compete for the starting job.
DeSue is the latest Bishop Sullivan Catholic product to join Maryland, which has three such players in its 2017 Class. Defensive tackles Brandon and Breyon Gaddy and wide receiver Tahj Capehart also hailed from the Virginia Beach Catholic school.
