Maryland's date with Michigan State on Saturday is without a doubt the biggest home game left on the schedule — and perhaps the Terrapins' biggest game of the entire season — so it's no surprise the Terps will have a handful of highly regarded recruiting targets on hand as the Terrapins aim to upset the No. 12 team in the country. Maryland will have at least four four-star recruits on campus, a source within the athletic department confirmed, as well as several other recruits with varying rankings.
The two highest profile visitors are a pair of four-star local recruits in the Class of 2016. Dwayne Haskins, a quarteback from Bullis (Md.), and Trevon Diggs, a wide receiver from Avalon (Md.) and Stefon's little brother, will both be at Byrd Stadium two weeks after seeing the Terps upset Penn State in Happy Valley. Haskins and Diggs were at that game as PSU visitors and have expressed interest in playing college football together in the past.
Haskins and Diggs are joined by two other four-star recruits, including Archbishop Carroll (D.C.) tackle Jauan Williams. The 2016 tackle is ranked 10th at his position by Rivals.com and also has interest from several other Big 10 teams including MSU, Ohio State and Nebraska. Naseir Upshur, a four-star tight end and the No. 2 player from Pennsylvania in the Class of 2016, rounds out the group of four-star prospects who will be in College Park on Saturday. Upshur also confirmed his visit on Twitter.
