Recruiting roundup: Football coaches busy after regular season's end

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland still has their sights on multiple big-time prospects in the 2014 class.

First, basketball:

Three-star 2015 shooting guard Donovan Mitchell received an offer from Florida and took a visit to Providence.

We've added a bunch of players that are receiving interest to the 2015 big board, including Georgios Papagiannis and Malik Ellison.

Now, for football:

Three-star 2014 DeMatha offensive tackle Brock Ruble took his final planned official visit, to NC State. He's expected to choose between the Wolfpack, Maryland and Florida State soon, although it doesn't appear the Seminoles are really in it.

Five-star 2014 cornerback Jalen Tabor visited Florida and had an in-home visit from Maryland's staff. He'll take an official to Alabama next weekend.

Three-star 2014 outside linebacker Melvin Keihn received a coach's visit from Maryland as well, as did three-star 2014 offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafor. Current commits Tyler Burke (taking his official next week), Jared Cohen (also next week) and E.J. Donahue also got visits.

Three-star 2014 safety Shawn Boone received an in-home visit from Bret Bielema and Arkansas.

Three-star 2014 offensive tackle Marcus Applefied received an in-home visit from Mike Locksley and takes an official visit to Rutgers this weekend.

Maryland is going after two new 2014 running back targets: four-star North Carolina back Donte Thomas-Williams and local Linganore two-star prospect Phillip Butler. Butler received a visit from Greg Gattuso this week.

Four-star 2015 offensive tackle Austin Clark visited Vanderbilt and got a scholarship offer.
