Elisha is the No. 121 corner in the class of 2016 and the No. 186 player in the state of Florida, according to 247Sports Composite. Elijah is the No. 62 safety in the class and the No. 126 player in the state of Florida. They are the third and fourth Florida players to commit to Maryland this week, after running back LaDerrien Wilson and defensive tackle Aaron Thompson.
They both committed to Minnesota in June. The two took an official visit at Maryland this weekend, and seem to be having a good time during the current blizzard.

Three of Maryland's four starting defensive backs from last season are out of eligibility, leaving cornerback Will Likely as the only returner. The Terps don't have any standout reserves in the secondary, so the Daniels twins are important reinforcements for new position coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim.
