22-year-old Earl, who joined the Saracens Academy in 2012 aged 14, will continue his top-flight development on loan at Bristol Bears next season, along with club teammate Max Malins, before returning to Saracens.
Four years on from his first year, Earl starred for England Under-20s at the Junior World Championships and made his Sarries debut in the LV= Cup. The back rower has since made a further 55 senior appearances and his form has led to England selection.
Malins tasted success with England Under-20s at the World Rugby U20 Championship three years into his Sarries journey and made his first-team bow a season later in the LV= Cup.
He made his Premiership debut in 2016/17 before enjoying the first of three European appearances – the most recent a man-of-the-match performance against Munster – in Saracens’ win over Glasgow Warriors last season.
On Earl, Director of Rugby Mark McCall said: “Nothing brings more joy to everyone at Saracens than seeing a young player grow in our system, play for our club and represent his country.
“Ben is an exceptional young man with a huge future in rugby. We are delighted he has committed that future to Saracens.”
On Malins, McCall said: “We are thrilled that Max sees his long term future at our club.
“He is another bright young talent who has come through our Academy and is a player with great potential whose best days lie ahead.”
