The top Terrapin commitment pretended to be a scout and a recruiting analyst for SB Nation at Nike's elite recruiting event.

Four-star Potomac (Md.) Bullis School recruit Dwayne Haskins, committed to Maryland, is at The Opening in Beaverton, Ore. this week and talked with SB Nation's Bud Elliott about, well, Dwayne Haskins. Check out the prospect scouting himself, as well as giving his top five big board for Maryland's remaining targets.

For those less familiar with the five names, here's the skinny on those prospects:

  • Trevon Diggs, The Avalon School (Rockville, Md.), 2016 ATH. The younger brother of Stefon Diggs, Trevon is likely the top target left on Maryland's board. A four-star athlete, Diggs ranks as the No. 5 athlete in the 2016 class and the No. 3 player in the state of Maryland. Alabama is the biggest competition for his commitment, but other SEC schools like LSU could also pose threats.
  • Tino Ellis, DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.), 2016 WR. Maryland already has commitments from DeMatha prospects Lorenzo Harrison and DJ Turner (who is at The Opening with Haskins), but Ellis remains on the board. Ranked as the No. 46 wide receiver in the class and the No. 9 player in Maryland, the race for his commitment appears to be down to the Terps and Virginia Tech.
  • Terrance Davis, DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.), 2016 OG. Another major DeMatha target, Davis ranks as the No. 2 offensive guard in the country and the No. 4 player in the state. Michigan is the biggest competition for Davis, who has said the Wolverines are his current leader.
  • Keith Simms, The Landon School (Bethesda, Md.), 2016 OLB. Simms has been a Maryland target for a while now, and his commitment is still relatively open. Stanford, Oregon and Wisconsin are the biggest threats for the Terps. Simms ranks as the No. 35 OLB in the class and the No. 15 player in the state.
  • Richard Merritt, Archbishop Carroll (Washington, D.C.), 2016 OG. Like Davis, Merritt is one of the top offensive guards not only in the area, but in the entire country. He ranks as the No. 5 player at the position in the class and the No. 3 player in the District, where Maryland has one commit (Woodson's Parnell Motley) in the class. Alabama and Florida State are the two biggest contenders to take him out of the DMV area.
