Maryland recruiting roundup: Terps extend new 2015 basketball offer

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland had a busy week on the recruiting trail.

First, basketball:

Mark Turgeon and Dustin Clark visited a Texas prospect this past week, 2015 6'7", 195 pound small forward Jordan Murphy. They have also extended him a scholarship offer. He also has offers from Baylor, Kansas State, Marquette, Oklahoma State, SMU and Texas A&M.

Bino Ranson visited 2015 three-star shooting guard Chris Clarke, and Clarke returned the favor by taking an unofficial visit to Maryland. From Virginia Beach, Clarke has offers from Crieghton, East Carolina, Old Dominion and Virginia Tech.

Now, for football:

Three-star outside linebacker Melvin Keihn committed to Virginia Tech.

Maryland has a new commitment in their 2014 class -- All-American long-snapper Nate Adams. He's very good, as we found out while looking at his tape.

The Terps have received their first official signing of the 2014 class, as Larry Mazyck sent in his letter of intent.

Three-star offensive lineman Jared Cohen -- the first commitment of Maryland's class -- has decommitted and will choose between the Terps and Penn State.

Maryland offensive line commitment Brendan Moore was named second-team all-state for Class 5A in Texas -- which is a big deal.

Five-star 2014 offensive tackle Damian Prince was named a first-team All-American by the USA Today.

The Terps have offered unrated 2015 safety AJ Turner, from Clifton (Va.). He has scholarship offers from South Carolina and Virginia Tech.
