National Signing Day was a massive success for Maryland's football program under DJ Durkin. His first class after a full recruiting cycle, Durkin attracted 11 four-star recruits to the program. 

He also drew 17 of the 28 players from Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. According to the Maryland athletic department, eight of the local players received All-WCAC honors. 

Scout.com ranks the Terrapins recruiting class highest at No. 11 in the country. Rivals.com ranks them 16th, 247 Sports ranks them 18th and ESPN ranks them 20th. 

Durkin's success attracting talent shouldn't come as a surprise after he was named Recruiter of the Year by Rivals back in 2012 as part of Florida's staff. 

Here's the full list of 2017 signees.
