On Thursday the Tennessee Volunteers became the 28th program to offer the top player in the state of Maryland — defensive tackle Adam McLean.

McLean is a four-star DT from Bethesda, MD (Quince Orchard). He stands 6’1″ and weighs 282 lbs.

247Sports’ composite rankings list McLean as the top player in the state of Maryland and the fourth best defensive tackle in the nation.

The hometown Maryland Terrapins currently lead McLean’s 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions, but who knows how long they can hold on to that with programs such as Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Ohio State going after the four-star.

Despite McLean’s wide body, he’s quick enough to get after the quarterback, but he’s also an effective run-stuffer.

The Vols have been trying to load up on defensive linemen in 2014 and 2015, but given Tennessee’s complete lack of D-line depth, they need all they can get.

Check out McLean’s highlights and you’ll see why he’d be a great fit on the Vols’ defensive line.
