Maryland head coach Mike Locksley scored a hat trick on Monday as the Terps secured commitments from three skill position players in the class of 2023 in three-star wide receiver Derrick Rogers Jr., unranked wide receiver Josh Richards and No. 57 tight end Dylan Wade.

Rogers Jr. and Wade play together at Jones High School in Orlando, Florida, and hope to make a formidable duo for years to come in the receiver room in College Park.

Rogers Jr. has elite speed and can take the top off the defense with ease. He showcased his dynamic quickness with a 75-yard touchdown in a game versus New Smyrna Beach last season.

Wade, a two-sport athlete, was a member of the school’s varsity basketball team in 2021 despite being a sophomore. He averaged 5.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per contest, according to 247 Sports. The six-foot-four wideout is sudden with his wide variety of routes and easily high-points the football to prevent defenders from making a play on the ball.

Richards, an unranked prospect, per the 247Sports Composite, is six-foot-three with the potential to be a matchup nightmare on the outside. Richards has the ability to use his body to shield defenders and make contested catches.

Locksley has 11 players in his 2023 recruiting class secured with the recruiting dead period now in effect.
