Maryland recruiting roundup: 1 down, 19 to go on Haskins' big board

New, 68 comments

A busy week in Maryland recruiting results in three different commitments.

Maryland football picked up three commitments this weekend, none bigger than four-star Bullis (Md.) quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The star of the Terrapins' newly-minted Top-25 class, Haskins promised to try and bring 20 recruits with him to College Park -- most of them elite locals.

He's already gotten one. Haskins helped organize a surprise commitment from Ohio defensive tackle Jeffery Pooler live on a radio show, knocking the first name off his list. That means we get to update our handy graphic, created by Testudo Times copy editor MJ Kurs-Lasky.

Pooler was not the only Ohioan to commit to Maryland this weekend. Massive offensive tackle Terek Zingale did so as well, giving the Terps added depth on the line and another connection in the Midwest region.

New offers: (All ratings according to the 247Sports Composite)

  • 2017 cornerback, free safety Troy Simon.
  • 2016 Hazelwood, (Mo.) Hazelwood West defensive end James Jennette II. The 6'4, 225-pound prospect holds offers from Maryland and Purdue. Jennette is the 77th-ranked weak side defensive end in the class of 2016 and the 14th-ranked player in Missouri.

Givens informed me on May 11th that Arizona State and Penn State were the two schools recruiting him the hardest, but Maryland is still in contention.
