Irmo (S.C) offensive tackle Stephen St. John announced he will accept Maryland's scholarship offer, choosing the Terps over finalists Marshall and Wake Forest. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound rising senior chose Maryland chose Maryland because the school offers the major he's interested in – criminology – and because he felt quite comfortable with the coaching staff.
"I'm very, very excited," said St. John, who was recruited to Maryland by outside linebackers coach Al Seamonson.
"I felt really close to [Seamonson]. I felt like I could get along well with hm and he was somebody who I could talk to in the coming years," St. John said.
The Dutch Fork High School standout was an unknown entering the spring, when he grabbed the attention of several major-conference schools by being named the offensive line MVP of the Nike Combine at Gainesville. He is a 3.0 student and a pleasant young man.
He said the staff has not made any specific plans for his progression yet.
"The redshirt is not for sure," he said. "They told me I've just got to go up there and show them what I can do."
