The Maryland football program has focused a lot of its recruiting efforts on its local area (duh), Florida and Southern Virginia in recent weeks. But the Terps are at least poking around on some of the country's better prospects in California.
Brendan Radley-Hiles, a 5'9 or 5'10 (depending on where you look) cornerback from Calabassas in California, announced a Maryland offer late on Wednesday. He's rated four stars by 247Sports and the No. 8 cornerback in the 2018 class.

Radley-Hiles is nicknamed "Bookie," and perhaps that's because he can really book it. He's lightning-fast, claiming a 4.48-second 40-yard dash as a high school sophomore. That's something else.
