Maryland's most important recruit is a very popular guy.

Thursday marks the start of another recruiting "contact period," which means college coaches can again meet with recruits in person, at any location, once per week. Four-star Maryland quarterback commit Dwayne Haskins is receiving a lot of attention already, as the strength of his pledge to the Terps is very much in question.

Teams aren't waiting any longer than required to see Haskins in person, as several schools are dropping by to see him Thursday.

Ohio State and LSU are two of the teams recruiting the Terps' prized prospect the hardest, and Maryland now only leads Ohio State by three points in 247 Sports' Crystal Ball prediction.

The Terps recently offered two other quarterbacks in the class of 2016, in what appears to be a backup plan in case Haskins bolts for another program. The four-star Bullis (Md.) quarterback is reportedly very attached to former Maryland interim head coach and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, whose future with the program is in doubt as new head coach DJ Durkin has already completed his coaching hires.

National Signing Day is Feb. 3, less than three weeks away.
