This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

Maryland football hosted a whole lot of recruits this weekend. Some have already committed, while others are still waiting to announce where they’ll be playing in the fall.

Sunday night, the Terps received commitments from defensive tackles Breyon and Brandon Gaddy and offensive tackle Tyran Hunt.

The Gaddy twins were among many visitors to College Park this weekend (Hunt visited the weekend prior). Here are a few of them:

Auburn commit Calvin Ashley, a five-star offensive tackle who’s teammates at St. John’s (D.C) with Maryland commits Kasim Hill and Cam Spence.

Those were some encouraging tweets, even though recruits tend to say positive things about every place they visit.

But Auburn’s staff was waiting for him when he got home.

Tariq Castro-Fields, a four-star corner from Riverdale Baptist (Md.) tweeted that he was there.

QB commit Kasim Hill expressed his support too:

Here’s four-star guard commit Marcus Minor:

Three-star cornerback commit Fofie Bazzie wanted to express how extremely committed to Maryland he is.

Here’s Jordan McNair, four-star offensive tackle commit:

Three-star wide receiver commit Sean Nelson:

Three-star tight end commit Andrew Park:

Three-star center commit Johnny Jordan:

Three-star running back commit Tayon Fleet-Davis:

From now until Jan. 11 is a recruiting “dead period,” which means all coaches can do is contact players by phone once a week.
