Maryland football spring game: Top target Dwayne Haskins leads visitors list

Most of Maryland's 2016 commits will be in attendance for the yearly scrimmage as well.


Maryland's annual spring game takes place this Saturday. A public scrimmage that ends the spring practice period, it also serves as an annual recruiting event for the program. Last season, eventual signees Ellis McKennie and Mbi Tanyi visited. This season, the Terps hope to add more to their top-30 2016 haul.

Four of the six commitments that make up the class have been confirmed as visitors for the event. Four-star Good Counsel linebacker Keandre Jones, considered the seventh-best player in the state by the 247Sports Composite, will be in town with teammate and fellow Maryland pledge Travon Stott, a three-star cornerback. Three-star DeMatha wide receiver DJ Turner and three-star South Carroll lineman Brian Plummer will also be there.

As for non-committed targets attending, I've confirmed the following visitors. We'll update this list as more confirmations come in.

  • Four-star Potomac (Md.) Bullis 2016 quarterback Dwayne Haskins, the Terps' top target in the class, will be in College Park. The 6'3, 200-pound prospect is considered the second-best player in the state and the fifth-best pro-style quarterback in the 2016 class by the 247Sports Composite. Maryland is currently the Crystal Ball favorite, while Ohio State, LSU, Notre Dame, Alabama and Rutgers are also among the schools in the running.
  • Three-star McKeesport (Penn.) 2016 safety Khaleke Hudson will also be there. The 5'11, 200-pound prospect is one of the top safeties on the Terps' board, and it's a position they need immediate help in. He's rated as the 39th-best outside linebacker in the class of 2016 and the 12th-best player in Pennsylvania by the 247Sports Composite. Penn State and Pittsburgh are thought to be the leaders for his signature.
  • McKeesport (Penn.) 2016 linebacker Tymar Sutton will travel with his teammate Hudson to College Park. He has offers from West Virginia, Army, Navy, Buffalo and Miami (OH).
  • Macedonia (Ohio) Nordonia 2016 offensive tackle Terek Zingale, a massive prospect (6'6, 300 pounds) with offers from Illinois, Akron, Ohio and Toledo. Maryland offered him earlier this week.
  • Groton (Mass.) Lawrence Academy 2016 offensive tackle Eddy Fish will be in town. Maryland has expressed interest in the 6'6, 290-pound prospect, but his sole offer at the moment comes from Temple.
  • Reisterstown (Md.) Franklin 2018 lineman Calvin Carroll is one of the younger prospects expected to be in town. You can watch his highlights here.
