Five-star power forward Carlton Bragg received visits from Kansas and Illinois.

Some new offers extended by the Terrapins:

  • Four-star Montverde (Fla.) offensive tackle Abdul Bello, who holds offers from Miami, Florida and Florida State, among others

Some other Junior Day visitors (or those who visited for the Syracuse game) that we didn't have on last week's list:

Three-star Great Valley (Penn.) defensive end Ryan Buchholz and three-star Archbishop Wood (Penn.) inside linebacker Jake Cooper committed to Penn State.

Three-star Floridian offensive tackle Tyler Jordan committed to Florida.

Florida wide receiver Rashad Blunt, who told us Maryland was "definitely" at the top of his list, followed up with our own Pat Donahue after the post was published:

"I was just looking at the comments and I think it's getting a lot of good feedback and the MD fans show crazy love. I'm really liking the feel and there was a lot of stuff in the comments that I'd like to prove I'm better at next year. And I'm going to be running a 4.4 soon so be on the look for that."

Three-star Highland Springs (Va.) wide receiver Felton Davis III is blowing up considerably. He received a pretty high three-star rating, and has received offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Marshall and Old Dominion.

Four-star Briar Woods (Va.) wide receiver Brandon Polk picked up an offer from Wisconsin.

Four-star Connecticut tight end Chris Clark picked up offers from Missouri, Mississippi State, UCF (ha), UConn (ha!) and Alabama.

Three-star New Jersey outside linebacker Joe Giles-Harris picked up offers from Old Dominion and NC State.

Recent Maryland offer Mbi Tanyi picked up another one -- from Louisiana Tech.

Maryland target Jake Pickard picked up an offer from Louisville.

Local quarterback Nick Johns picked up an offer from NC State.
