Maryland recruiting roundup: Trevon Diggs postpones announcement

New, 18 comments

Is that a good or bad sign for the Terps?

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

July 4 was supposed to be the day that Maryland fans across the country could take a collective sigh of relief (or not), as Avalon School (MD) athlete Trevon Diggs was set to announce his college commitment. Terps fans have been clamoring for his arrival for years, but the Terrapin faithful will have to exhibit patience for now. A new announcement date has yet to be determined. This could be in Maryland's favor, as the Terps may hold the lead for the younger Diggs's services and he wants to check every possible school to make sure his heart is telling him to stay home. More information will be provided once updates become available.

Carmel Catholic (IL) tight end Noah Turner recently committed to North Carolina. The 6'3, 233-pound prospect held the Terps in high regard, but Maryland was unable to seal the deal. The Terps' main tight end prospect is Naseir Upshur from Imhotep Institute (PA), but Michigan has been on a roll in the 247Sports crystal ball predictions since June.

Gilman offensive tackle Stephan Spanellis verbally committed to Virginia. The 6'5, 295-pound lineman chose the Cavaliers over Maryland, Arkansas, Illinois and Michigan State, among others.

There were no reported offers this week.
