Four-star defensive end Joshua Kaindoh decommitted from Maryland Monday night, leaving the Terrapins with 20 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. 


D.J. Durkin led his Terrapins to a 6-6 record and capped off the season with a 31-13 win over Rutgers to reach bowl eligibility in his first season as head coach. Nevertheless, his 2017 recruiting class took a hit on Monday night.

Four-star prospect Joshua Kaindoh decommitted from Maryland, leaving the Terps with 20 total commits in the cycle.

Kaindoh, who attends IMG Academy, is ranked as the No. 6 defensive end and No. 53 overall player in the country. He released a statement regarding his decision and announced he’ll make his final commitment on Jan. 1 at the Under Armour All-America Game.

“At this time, after coming home and discussing this matter with my family, I have decided that I am decommitting from the University of Maryland. Thank you to Maryland’s coaching staff for their belief in me and for a great opportunity. Thank you to the Terp fans for their continuous support and love toward me as I was committed. I wish Maryland nothing but the best. Thank you to everyone who understands.”

Kaindoh’s decision comes on the heels of his official visit to Happy Valley for Penn State’s 45-12 win over Michigan State last weekend. The Nittany Lions will now take on Wisconsin on Saturday in the Big Ten title game.

The 6-foot-6, 252-pound defensive end is originally from Essex, Maryland. He’s set to take an official visit to Georgia on Friday. Kaindoh also spent an official visit at Florida State when the Seminoles took down Wake Forest, 17-6,  last month. Two weeks prior to his visit to Tallahassee, he officially visited Maryland for the Terps’ 50-7 throttling of Purdue.

Ohio State is very much in the running for Kaindoh as well, though Penn State currently appears to be the favorite to land him. The Nittany Lions recently flipped 4-star defensive tackle Fred Hansard from the Florida Gators.
