In this week's roundup, Maryland gets a due date for two of its top football targets, while a top hoops prospect opts for Georgetown.
-- Class of 2014 defensive end/linebacker target Melvin Keihn (Gilman) named a top five of Virginia Tech, Maryland, Penn State, Virginia and Miami, with the Hokies, Cavaliers and Terps reportedly tied at the top. He’ll announce his choice during the Jan. 2 Under Armour All-America Game.
-- Class of 2014 defensive back target Jalen Tabor will take his official visit to Maryland on Nov. 8, when the Terps host Syracuse. He will take his other two visits to Florida (Nov. 30) and Alabama (Dec. 13). Tabor was named an Under Armour All-American on Thursday and, like Keihn, will announce his collegiate destination at the all-star game.
-- The class of 2015 got its first commit: E.J. Donahue.
-- Class of 2015 defensive end prospect Darius Fullwood said he has offers from Florida State, Michigan State, North Carolina State, Penn State, Stanford, Virginia and Virginia Tech … but not Maryland, apparently. The Good Counsel player listed the Nittany Lions as his favorite after visiting State College the night they upset Michigan.
-- Class of 2015 power forward target Marcus Derrickson committed to Georgetown on Saturday over offers from Maryland, Indiana, Miami and N.C. State. Some injury and consistency worries had followed Derrickson, but the Paul VI (Va.) player appears to have turned a corner this offseason.
-- Class of 2015 point guard prospect Malik Ellison, son of “Never Nervous” Pervis, visited Maryland on Saturday. He has an offer from Temple, and his sister Aja, a Class of 2014 forward, committed to women’s coach Brenda Frese in June.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
