Recruiting roundup: Terps extend offers, huge visitors for Syracuse game

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Our weekly roundup of all the news in Maryland recruiting.

First, basketball:

Letters of intent are in! Dion Wiley, Jared Nickens and Trayvon Reed have all signed. Melo Trimble wil do so on Friday.

2016 Duval small forward A.J. Wilson received his first offer, from Penn State.

Now, for football:

Visitors for the Syracuse game: five-star 2014 offensive tackle Damian Prince (official), five-star 2014 cornerback Jalen Tabor (official), three-star 2014 offensive tackle Brock Ruble (unofficial), 2014 commits Jesse Aniebonam, Larry Mazyck, Derwin Gray, Will Ulmer, Tyler Burke, 2015 commit E.J. Donahue, four-star 2015 athlete Marcus Lewis, three-star 2015 quarterback Nick Johns, four-star 2015 wide receiver Jabari Greenwood, three-star 2015 safety Ayron Monroe, 2015 outside linebacker Anthony Malaguti and 2016 defensive end Devante Brooks.

Maryland has offered another offensive lineman in the 2014 class -- JuCo guard Robert McClure. He was also given a three-star rating. This is a move likely in response to Mike Madaras's departure from the team.

Another 2015 offer has been extended, to four-star Ohio defensive tackle Elijah Taylor. Taylor is considered a Notre Dame lean, and also has an offer from Michigan State, so it's hard to see the Terps making a serious run at him.

Marcus Lewis, one of the visitors for the Syracuse game and a four-star cornerback/wide receiver from Gonzaga, received offers from Iowa and Rutgers.

2016 Archbishop Carroll tackle Jauan Williams received an offer from Iowa.

Four-star 2015 cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick received an offer from Mississippi State.

Four-star 2015 quarterback Kai Locksley was offered by Auburn.

Four-star 2015 cornerback Maurice Smitherman was offered by Tennessee.

Four-star 2015 wide receiver Jabari Greenwood also received an offer from Iowa, as did four-star 2015 lineman Richie Petitbon.
