What if Joshua Kaindoh and Cam Spence actually get the Maryland football targets they want?

Blue-chip Maryland football commits Joshua Kaindoh and Cam Spence have serious designs on adding more top-end talent to the Terrapins' 2017 recruiting class.

In an interview with SB Nation over the weekend, the two laid out some of their top targets. Kaindoh said he's working on "my boy" Chase Young, who's either the No. 1 or No. 2 weak-side defensive end in the country, with Kaindoh being the other. The DeMatha product likes Maryland a lot, although Ohio State seems like the favorite. Spence said he's taking aim at DeMatha athlete Anthony McFarland and Virginia safety Devon Hunter.

We're just playing around here, but let's say Maryland actually adds those players. What would it do for the Terps' class?

Lots of fun things. We're really just spitballing here, but according to the 247Sports class calculator, stacking the three of those players atop Maryland's current nine commits would net the Terps a composite team score of 206.32. That'd be nothing short of the No. 3 class in the country if all three committed in short order.

Is this going to happen? Almost definitely not. But even getting one of the three would likely bring Maryland into the top 10 of 247's national team ranking, and the fact that we're even having this conversation and it's not totally outrageous is a testament to how far Maryland's recruiting has come in a half-year under DJ Durkin, without him having coached a game.
