Maryland football adds another class of 2014 commitment

The Maryland football team received its sixth oral commitment for its recruiting class of 2014 late Monday night, when Pennsylvania defensive lineman Brett Kulka offered his pledge, an individual with knowledge confirmed following multiple reports.

Kulka, an end from General McLane High School in Edinboro, Pa., becomes Maryland’s second defensive line recruit from the Keystone State. The Terps had zero recruits from Pennsylvania in last year’s class of 2013 but have nine on their current active roster.

Coach Randy Edsall, during his days at Connecticut, recruited former General McLane cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, overseeing his growth from a little-known prospect who only played one season of high school football into a third-round draft pick to the Tennessee Titans.

Kulka has not received a rating from either or Rivals. According to 247sports, he had mostly non-BCS offers, from the likes of Akron, Bucknell, Buffalo, Kent State and Yale. He’s a strong edge rusher listed at 6 feet 5 and 230 pounds who reportedly visited College Park for the first time on Monday, committing on the trip.

Kulka joins defensive lineman David Shaw, offensive lineman Jared Cohen, running back Johnathan Thomas, quarterback Will Ulmer and tight end Andrew Gray as Maryland’s current class of 2014.
