The University of Maryland played host to a few thousand spectators for its annual Red-White spring game. Not only was it a free show for the Terrapin faithful, it was also a great opportunity to play host to top recruits from around the region. Coming off a week that consisted of three commitments in eight days, coach Edsall and company looked to maintain momentum with new offers. The Terrapins are looking to establish roots in Big Ten territory and have been looking in Texas as of late.

New offers (all ratings via the 247Sports Composite):

  • Wylie East (TX) WR Aubrey White. The 5’11, 190-pound wide out also received an offer from Purdue. He holds offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, Missouri and Michigan State.

  • Katy (TX) LB Paddy Fisher. At 6’2, 215 pounds, Fisher ranks as a three-star recruit and is ranked as the 43rd-best inside linebacker in the class of 2016. Fisher holds offers from Baylor, Boston College, Houston and others
