Maryland football picked up a key New Jersey commitment Friday with the pledge of three-star edge rusher De’Juan Samuels.

Samuels, who ranks as the No. 91 edge and No. 18 player from New Jersey in the Class of 2023, committed to the Terps over offers from Michigan, Ole Miss, Penn State and Rutgers among others.

Samuels stands at 6-foot-2, 240 pounds and brings a blend of physicality and speed to the defensive end position. His athletic ability pairs with his nose for the football to help him make plays in the backfield against the run and pass. He has shown the ability to break from blocks and quickly disrupt plays.
