Terps lose another recruit in offensive linemen Jordan White to decommitment

The Maryland Terrapins have been a complete mess this season, struggling to get back on track after another miserable loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes this past weekend.

Last week, the Terps lost three-star cornerback and Creekside High School product Rashad Battle to decommitment. Now, they lost another three-star player in offensive linemen Jordan White.

White is currently ranked as the 27th-best prospect out of the state of Maryland, according to 247sports. The Terps' overall recruiting class rank continues to drop and the future of their football program remains in a state of rebuild. 

The decommitments to the University of Maryland should come as now surprise, considering how poorly their football team is doing right now. Five of their seven losses came about in blowout fashion.

Here are the scores: 59-0 (vs. Penn State), 40-14 (@ Purdue), 52-10 (@ Minnesota), 38-7 (vs Michigan), 73-14 (@ Ohio State)

Head coach Mike Locksley will have his work cut out for him to convince the remaining members of his 2020 recruiting class to stay committed to the Terps' football program. Their overall top recruit is Ruben Hyppolite II, a four-star linebacker from McArthur High School in Hollywood, Florida. Although he remains committed to the team, do not be surprised if he looks at other options.

There is no doubt that currently win-loss record and NFL hopes are driving these players out of their initial commitments to the Terps. If Maryland wants to convince their remaining prospects to stay on the team, they have to win now. They host the struggling Nebraska Cornhuskers this Saturday.
