Maryland landed a commitment Saturday from 2017 four-star defensive end Joshua Kaindoh. rates Kaindoh, who is originally from Maryland attends the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. as the 90th overall player in the class. He announced his commitment on Twitter.

Kaindoh is a major addition for new head coach D.J. Durkin and the Terrapins staff, who are also recruiting another highly-touted defensive end from the DMV area, Chase Young.

“Kaindoh is a freakish athlete, with a combination of size, length and burst,”’s Brian Dohn writes. “He gets up the field in two steps and has the speed to get around the edge. He is also effective dropping into coverage, and he can chase plays down from behind. Kaindoh has the strength to bull rush, but what stands out the most is his quickness, change of direction and pure speed in covering 10 yards with long strides.”

Kaindoh rates as the seventh-best defensive end in the class.
