Terps grab three-star LB Jermaine Carter

Outside linebacker Jermaine Carter (Washington, D.C./Friendship) has committed to staying close to home, choosing to suit up for Maryland, according to multiple sources.

Boston College, Buffalo, Colorado, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Old Dominion Syracuse and Temple also extended scholarship offers to Carter (6-foot-0, 200 pounds). Marshall, Ohio, Penn State and West Virginia recruited the three-star prospect.

Carter is the sixth 2013 linebacker to select Maryland and the 17th overall pledge.
