Franklin Regional rising senior linebacker Brett Zanotto (6-0, 215) made a verbal commitment to Maryland Thursday, choosing the Terrapins over offers from Syracuse, Boston College, Temple, Toledo, UMass and Eastern Michigan, FR coach Greg Botta confirmed. Zanotto made 157 tackles last season in 12 games, including 27 for a loss.

“He loved the campus, loved the program and the staff was very, very encouraging,” said Botta, who spoke with Maryland coach Randy Edsall at last week's Big 33 Football Classic. “They say they don't have a linebacker like him down there now.”
