>> Maryland’s sixth commitment for the class of 2014 and second from Coach Randy Edsall’s native state of Pennsylvania, Kulka is widely viewed as an under-the-radar prospect, the type of hard worker with whom Edsall likes to round out his recruiting groups. Before committing to Maryland, he had offers from Akron, Bucknell, Buffalo and Kent State, according to 247sports.

“Their program and their philosophy and what they do there seemed like a good fit for me,” Kulka said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I looked like a good fit for what they had going and I’m hoping I can help them out.”

>> When Edsall coached at Connecticut, he developed some in-roads at General McLane by recruiting former cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, who eventually turned from a little-known prospect with one season of high school football under his belt into a third-round NFL draft pick.
