Adam McLean gained fame for his bold step to show his loyalty to Penn State by shaving the Penn State logo into his head.
McLean, a superstar defensive line recruit from Quince Orchard High in North Potomac, Md., then decommitted from the Nittany Lions in mid-November.
The four-star recruite will instead be staying home, announcing on Twitter that he had committed to the University of Maryland by posting a picture of himself and Terps coach Randy Edsall.
Note that McLean does not have the turtle shaved into his head in the photo.
McLean is ranked as the second-best player in the state of Maryland by the 247Sports Composite rankings and the 13th-best defensive tackle in the Class of 2015.
This is a significant step for Edsall and Maryland as it marks the second consecutive year that they were able to convince a top player to remain in state. A year ago, the top two prep recruits in the state remained at home (No. 1 Damian Prince and No. 2 Jesse Aniebonam). The No. 1 prospect in the state this year is offensive tackle Isaiah Prince, who has Maryland among his top choices.
