With National Signing Day wrapping up on Wednesday, the Maryland football team has its 2018 class virtually set.
After having signed 22 players during the early signing period, the Terrapins should have a relatively quiet National Signing Day. The Terps have three 4-star recruits and 19 3-star recruits.

Where Maryland’s 2018 recruiting class ranks historically
Though this recruiting class is ranked slightly lower than last season, it is one of the Terps’ best in recent memory.
In 2017, the Terps had the No. 18 class in the nation and the No. 4 class in the Big Ten, with eight 4-star recruits and 20 3-star recruits.
The year before was coach DJ Durkin’s first season in charge. He brought in the No. 41 class in the nation and the No. 7 class in the Big Ten, as the Terps signed three 4-star recruits and 16 3-star recruits.
It was an improvement from 2015, when Maryland had the No. 47 class in the nation and the No. 7 class in the Big Ten. The Terps had two 4-star recruits and 15 3-star recruits.
The 2014 recruiting class was the last time the Terps had a 5-star recruit (tackle Damian Prince). Maryland also had three 4-star recruits and 11 3-star recruits, which helped it earn the No. 41 class in the nation and the No. 7 class in the Big Ten.
In 2013, the Terps’ recruiting class was ranked No. 38 in the nation and No. 6 in the Big Ten. The program brought in three 4-star recruits and 17 3-star recruits.
Maryland has made strides on the recruiting trail since Durkin took over the program from former coach Randy Edsall. But Durkin will be judged on how his talent produces on the gridiron; the Terps were battered with injury problems last season and finished 4-8.
