Maryland continues winning in football, and a number of high-profile prospects visited College Park this weekend. Let's run it all down with our weekly recruiting roundup.
2016 Mount Saint Joseph power forward Doc Barnes visited Maryland for the Old Dominion game. 2016 St. Johns College point guard Anthony Cowan was also there, and was offered a scholarship. Here's a little about Cowan.
Maryland is still after Chinanu Onuaku in a serious way, as Mark Turgeon continues to prepare for the growing possibility of Jake Layman or Dez Wells (or both) declaring for the draft after this year.
The Terps also checked out 2015 four-star small forward Marcus Sheffield, who could be one of the top players in the class.
There are two additional big-time Georgia prospects that Mark Turgeon has been looking at from the 2015 class, five-star small forward Jaylen Brown and five-star center Daniel Giddens, both from Wheeler High School.
Three former Maryland targets made their decisions. Obi Enechionyia will be a Temple Owl, while Abdul Malik Abu is going to NC State. Martin Geben, the only one of the three Maryland was still kinda sorta recruiting, committed to Notre Dame.
Now for football news:
First up, visits for the Old Dominion game. 2015 three-star guard E.J. Donahue was there (days after picking up an offer from Rutgers), as was 2015 four-star defensive tackle Adam McLean. 2014 commits Tyler Burke and Jesse Aniebonam were there as well, as was 2015 four-star defensive end Darius Fullwood.
Four-star 2014 wide receiver Juwann Winfree took an official visit to Georgia this weekend. He will visit Maryland for the West Virginia game and Pitt the week after that. NC State and Vanderbilt are the two other schools on Winfree's list.
Three-star 2014 offensive tackle Marcus Applefield cut his list down to five, with Maryland not making the cut. Purdue, Rutgers, West Virginia, Vanderbilt and Virginia are the schools Applefield will choose between.
Three-star 2014 safety Shawn Boone visited NC State this weekend, and will be visiting Arkansas, Ohio State and Ole Miss over the next month.
2014 three-star center Jake Whitley committed to Georgia Tech, meaning the Terps will have to look elsewhere if they still want a center in the class.
2015 athlete Kai Locksley continues to rein in the offers, with B1G scholarships coming in the form of Wisconsin and Ohio State. He has an unofficial visit set up to Columbus later this month.
2015 Gonzaga receiver Jabari Greenwood was offered a scholarship by Rutgers, and has been given a four-star rating.
