In this week's roundup, Randy Edsall and Co. hit the road during the bye week, and a handful of former Terps basketball targets narrow their lists.

Football recruiting

-- Terps coach Randy Edsall checked out DeMatha-Good Counsel last Friday. Former linebacker Kenny Tate showed up, too.

-- Assistant Tom Brattan, meanwhile, headed to Quince Orchard for Class of 2015 defensive line target Adam McLean's game Friday. Said McLean: "Maryland is definitely coming after me a lot harder now."

-- The next day, Edsall visited Class of 2014 offensive tackle target Damian Prince's game. Afterward, Prince spoke to InsideMDSports.com about where his recruitment stands.

-- Class of 2016 wide receiver target Trevon Diggs, brother of Stefon, is already making defenders look silly. He's only a sophomore.

-- Class of 2015 quarterback target Kai Locksley, son of Mike, visited Ohio State on Saturday.

-- Class of 2015 offensive line target Richie Petitbon visited Alabama on Saturday.

-- Ever wonder how Maryland gets the attention of a highly rated local prospect? Class of 2015 target Jalen Christian is here to help.

-- ESPN Boston's Brendan Hall writes that in his 10 years of covering high school football in Massachusetts, "I have no problem saying [Class of 2014 running back commit Johnathan Thomas] is the best I've ever seen."

-- If you haven't heard, the Terps landed a pretty good receiver around this time last week.

Basketball recruiting

-- Former center target Chinanu Onuaku is set to decide today between Georgetown, Louisville and Miami. The Riverdale Baptist four-star prospect visited the Hoyas last weekend.

-- Former forward target Goodluck Okonoboh committed Thursday to Nevada-Las Vegas over Ohio State and Indiana. The blue-chip prospect joins Dwayne Morgan (St. Frances) in a talented big man class headed west.

-- Former commit Sam Cassell Jr. reportedly has narrowed down his college choices to Louisville and Connecticut. Cassell, a West Baltimore native, was ruled ineligible after an investigation into his classwork at Notre Dame Prep (Mass.), and he and the Terps parted ways shortly after.

-- The Terps have offered Class of 2015 four-star small forward Marcus Sheffield of Chattahoochee (Ga.) High, according to 247's Josh Stirn.
