Thursday night proved to be a good night for Big Ten recruiting. Rutgers landed their highest-rated recruit of the 2020 class at one point during the night.

Then, just minutes later, it was announced that Zach Perkins, a 6-foot-4, 321-pound OL from Tampa, Fla., was joining Maryland’s 2020 class:

Perkins is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and is ranked as the No. 155 offensive tackle in his class. He is Maryland’s 22nd verbal commitment and the entire Terrapins 2020 class can be found here.

It ranks No. 36 nationally and No. 10 in the Big Ten.
