Summers, who is unranked by 247Sports, is the sixth member of next year’s recruiting class. He attends St. Joseph High School in Trumbull, Connecticut, where he threw 49 touchdowns and just five interceptions as a junior.
After leading St. Joseph to a state championship, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound pro-style quarterback was named to numerous all-state teams and the Connecticut All-State Top 25.
Summers also received a scholarship offer from Pittsburgh, Rutgers and a handful of non-Power Five teams, according to 247Sports.
With redshirt sophomore Tyrrell Pigrome and redshirt freshman Kasim Hill set to run the offense in the immediate future, coach DJ Durkin is adding to the depth he will have at a position that has plagued the Terps in prior seasons.
Summers will join Max Bortenschlager, Legend Brumbaugh and Tyler DeSue as viable options behind Pigrome and Hill.
