Maryland basketball target Darryl Morsell cancels Dayton visit, says he could reschedule

Your weekly fill of Maryland basketball recruiting news.

Just days after attending Maryland Madness, Baltimore combo guard Darryl Morsell has cancelled his visit to Dayton, according to recruiting analyst Pat Lawless.

This might be good news for the Terps, but Morsell seems adamant that Dayton is still a contender for his services. Morsell recently announced his top three of Maryland, Dayton and Notre Dame, and he previously told InsideMdSports that he would announce his college plans shortly after his visit to Dayton.

"No, Dayton's still in it. I may reschedule," he told IMS after cancelling the visit.

Morsell is one of the Terps' top targets in the class of 2017, and recruiting analysts think he'll commit to Maryland, though there's obviously still time for that to change. Morsell is the No. 3 player in Maryland and the No. 4 combo guard in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite.

A commitment from the guard would be great news for Mark Turgeon and the Terps, as the 247Sports Composite ranks Morsell as the No. 78 player in the country. Four-star center Bruno Fernando, who committed earlier this month, is the sole member of the program's 2017 recruiting class. Maryland is also chasing five-star point guad Trevon Duval, but the Terps will have to fend off a much bigger line of suitors for him.

Here's Morsell's junior year mixtape:

In other news, this was a relatively quiet week for Maryland basketball recruiting, but the Terps did get one target on campus.

2019 wing Wendell Moore took an unofficial visit to Maryland last weekend, though he does not yet have an offer. Moore impressed scouts at the USA Basketball Junior Team workout, where added three powerhouses to his growing list of schools. Moore made connections with Kentucky, Maryland and Syracuse. The Orange offered him last week, joining North Carolina, N.C. State, Tennessee and Wake Forest.

Moore is the No. 33 small forward in the class of 2019 and the No. 8 player from North Carolina, according to the 247Sports Composite.
