Recapping the news from a busy week in Terps recruiting.

First, basketball:

2015 point guard Malik Ellison visited Maryland this weekend.

2016 point guard Anthony Cowan, three star 2016 shooting guard Curtis Jones and 2015 four star shooting guard Franklin Howard all visited Georgetown. Cowan also visited Rutgers.

2015 four star point guard Bryant Crawford visited Villanova.

Five-star 2015 power forward Carlton Bragg received an offer from Louisville.

Now for football news:

Maryland got a commitment from three-star massive 2015 offensive lineman E.J. Donahue.

2014 five star targets Jalen Tabor and Damian Prince have announced their decision dates. Tabor will announce January 2 at the Under Armour All-America Game, while Prince will honor his grandmother by announcing on Valentine's day. Tabor is also reportedly now down to Maryland, Florida and Alabama, cutting Arizona out of his list. He will take his official visit to Maryland next weekend.

Three-star 2014 offensive tackle Brock Ruble took an official visit to Florida State and appears to be leaning that way.

Three-star 2014 defensive end Melvin Keihn has named his top five: Maryland, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Miami and Virginia.

Three-star 2014 offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafor, who is committed to Western Michigan, is getting a coaches' visit from Maryland this week. He has recently added offers from Florida and Arkansas.

Maryland offered unrated 2015 defensive end Ryan Buchholz, from Pennsylvania. Boston College offered him as well. Virginia and Rutgers are his other offers. Buchholz's older brother, Carl, is a fullback on Maryland's team.

Visitors for Maryland's homecoming contest against Clemson:

Penn State offered four star 2015 defensive lineman Adam McLean.

LSU offered four star 2015 cornerback Maurice Smitherman, as did Kentucky.
