This guy is good at recruiting.
Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

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:

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.

It’s Friday, but Cornerbacks Week is still going strong. Yesterday, Thomas looked at Maryland’s former four-star wide-receiver-recruit-turned-starting-cornerback Tino Ellis and the versatility he can bring to the Terps.

Maryland football had a pretty wild 2007, despite a 6-7 record. The Terps beating two top-10 teams in one season wasn’t even all that wild in the grand scheme of things.

In case you missed it, or didn’t hear me yell from my couch in the 88th minute when Jordan Morris scored the game-winning goal, the United States won the Gold Cup Wednesday night. That also means that former Terps Omar Gonzales and Graham Zusi have another title to their names to put next to their 2008 National Championship.
