It’s almost senior day in College Park as Maryland prepares to host second-ranked Michigan as head coach Mike Locksley and the squad look to end with a bang. They’ll also look to do so with a long list of top targets back on campus as we dive into the names expected in College Park.
2024 targets & commits
Good Counsel four-star LB Aaron Chiles (Florida) is back on Maryland’s visitor list, though whether he ultimately makes it to campus remains a different story. Maryland remains the lone school working to flip Chiles down the stretch as the Falcons’ connections to the Gators have kept Chiles in the fold through the fall. While Maryland would love to turn the tide with the four-star linebacker, the pursuit of Flowers three-star CB Braydon Lee (South Carolina) has continued to trend well for Maryland through the fall as this weekend marks Lee’s fourth visit to campus this season. Maryland is still in hot pursuit to flip the local cornerback and I love where the Terps sit with an official visit still in play. St. Michael LB Michael Matthews-Canty initially visited Maryland in late July with Lance Thompson keeping tabs as the two sides have continued to stay in touch through the fall, making this weekend his first gameday of the season.
DeMatha DT Emmett Laws has been on a tear through his senior season and before the Stags take on the Falcons in the WCAC championship game, he and teammate Terez Davis will be back in College Park this weekend. I like the Hokies to hang onto Laws, but this will be his second visit to Maryland this season. Lackawanna DE Kealey Davis and IOL RJ Adams, who don’t hold offers, will also make the trip down to campus. After stints at Kentucky and Georgia Tech, Adams was set to transfer to Memphis before new NCAA rules altered those plans and is now set to graduate in December. St. Mary’s Ryken DE Cam Jones, who picked up an offer during the summer eval, will also be back on campus for the first time this season with assistant Kevin Sumlin keeping tabs on his recruitment.
Maryland will welcome a long list of their commits back on campus for the home finale with Anthony Robsock, Michael Hershey, Lloyd Irvin, Michael McMonigle, Ryan Howerton, Terez Davis, Khristian Martin, Brandon Jacob and Mekhai White in College Park.
Back on campus for the fourth time this season, Maryland would love to impress Archbishop Spalding (MD) four-star QB Malik Washington as the full staff effort through the summer into fall have solidified the Terps in the top group. Riverdale Baptist (MD) four-stars Cortez Harris and Jayvon McFadden have been expected for multiple games this season though have yet to make their way to College Park with McFadden among the top priorities on the offensive side of the ball next cycle.
Good Counsel four-star SAF Faheem Delane has been a repeat name for Maryland’s expected visitors this season as he’ll be back in College Park for what should be his third visit, while DePaul Catholic three-star CB Marquet Dorsey will be back on campus alongside his mom as Henry Baker leads the way early.
Matoaca (VA) WR Dillon Newton-Short is no stranger to College Park as he returns for his second visit this season, while South Gwinnett (GA) WR Jackson Cook visits for the first time after picking up his first Power Five offer from Maryland just ten days prior to kickoff. Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School QB Gavin Owens has been steadily hearing from the staff through the fall and also visited for Charlotte game. Freedom (VA) RB Jeff Overton, meanwhile, has been a frequent visitor at Maryland over the last two seasons as Latrell Scott continues to lead efforts for the Terps.
St. Michael (VA) four-star SAF Remington Moss (Wisconsin) has also been a frequent guest over the offseason, but this weekend will mark his first visit to campus. As mentioned earlier in the week, Paramus Catholic (NJ) three-star OT Malachi Goodman will make his way to campus while local Spalding duo Jayden Shipps and Trent Gillis head back to College Park.
Atlantic City (NJ) three-star WR Sahnye Degraffenreidt picked up an offer from analyst Preston Brown as this weekend, while Zionville (IN) SAF Max Phenicie will make his way to campus after picking up an offer back in September. South Sumter (FL) SAF Rashad Johnson Jr. will also make his way to campus for the first time this season with assistant James Thomas leading the way, while Curtis (NY) Armani Cabrera is back on campus for his second visit. Green Run (VA) WR Emmanuel Taylor, who doesn’t hold an offer yet, will visit for the second time while recently-offered Jeffersonville (IN) OT Chance Johnson is set to visit this weekend.
2026 & 2027
’26 Amari Sabb and ‘27 Xavier Sabb will be along the sidelines to watch their older brother and Michigan DB Keon Sabb, while ’26 Harvey (OH) Shahn Alston will make his way to campus alongside his dad and grandfather. ’27 Palisades (NC) WR Caleb Kearney is already on the Power Five radar after the Hokies were the first school to pull the trigger back in June, while this weekend marks his first visit to Maryland.
