The massive offensive lineman, once a Terrapins pledge who later latched onto New Mexico and eventually transferred to Iowa Western Community College, has once again committed to Maryland on Sunday, an individual with knowledge of the situation confirmed.
Listed at 6-feet-7 and 330 pounds, Mazyck played high school at Friendship Collegiate, where he initially committed to Maryland, and later took a prep year at Fork Union Military Academy. In Jan. 2011, Mazyck reneged on his Maryland commitment and reopened his recruitment, ultimately landing with the Lobos and current Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, then the head coach. As a true freshman in 2011, Mazyck played in seven games as a reserve tackle.
Mazyck joins a host of former Lobos who left the school after Locksley was fired, later playing at the same junior college that also held over wide receiver Deon Long for a season. According to 247sports.com, Maryland re-offered Mazyck on Aug. 13.
Using the program’s not-so-secret Twitter code for, “We just got a commitment,” Maryland Coach Randy Edsall all but confirmed the news.

More as becomes available. Mazyck will have two years of eligibility left. For now, here’s him tugging a tire at Iowa Western.
