DeMatha (Md.) Catholic High School keeps on giving for the Terrapins.
DeMatha football coach Elijah Brooks announced Saturday that defensive tackle Austin Fontaine and offensive guard Evan Gregory, both rated 4-stars by the 247 Sports composite rankings, will become Maryland’s fourth and fifth commits of the Class of 2018.
Big congratulations to my boys that get it done in the trenches! DT Austin Fontaine & OL Evan… https://t.co/eY79wd5E1y

The pair ranks as the top two recruits in D.J. Durkin’s class. The 6-foot-2, 312-pound Fontaine ranks as the No. 7 defensive tackle in the country and the No. 4 player in the state of Maryland, while Gregory (6-4, 285) is the No. 14 guard nationally and No. 10 player in Maryland.
Fontaine held several top scholarship offers, including Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Clemson and Georgia. Gregory’s offer list was a bit lighter, with Rutgers being the only other Big Ten school to offer. There’s a good chance that could change, though.
Maryland's recruiting class = ???
Terps had the No. 51 2018 class before signing Fontaine and Gregory. Now they're No. 27.

These two continue a pipeline from DeMatha that has been mighty nice for the Terps. The Maryland roster contains eight players from the school in Hyattsville, Md., with seven of them freshmen or sophomores.
