July is a time for football programs all over the country to host big recruiting events to get as many of their top targets as they can in one place at the same time. This weekend, it’s Maryland’s turn.
It’s the last weekend before the August dead period, which gives DJ Durkin and the Maryland staff the last crack at recruits before they go back to their fall camps. The Terps have made it through the first half of summer with many of their top targets still on the board, and a majority of Maryland’s targets who have committed have pledged to play in College Park.
That makes for an intriguing weekend at Maryland, with a slew of visitors expected on campus this Saturday. So without further ado, here’s who Testudo Times can confirm will be in College Park this weekend:
|Dontay Demus Jr.||WR||0.8615||2018|
|Valerian "VJ" Johnson||WR||N/A||2020|
And here’s who we’re expecting, but were unable to officially confirm:
Expected, but not confirmed
Here’s who told us “maybe”:
And finally, we know that Maryland commits Raymond Boone, Austin Fontaine, Evan Gregory, Durell Nchami and Maleak Bryant will not be present because their teams will have already started camp. Maryland targets Keshon Artis, Darryl Jones and Daniel George will not be there.
We’ll keep you updated in the comment section all weekend long as more information becomes available.
