Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

In this week's roundup, the basketball coaching staff turns its eyes to the Class of 2015 as the Class of 2014 gets together to play little.

Football recruiting

-- Class of 2015 offensive line commit E.J. Donahue tweeted Monday that he is “still committed” but is also taking visits from Florida State.

-- Class of 2015 quarterback target Kai Locksley, son of Mike, unsurprisingly has Maryland among his top 10 schools.

-- Class of 2015 cornerback target Kareem Ali included Maryland among his top five schools

Basketball recruiting

-- Class of 2014 signees Melo Trimble, Jared Nickens and Dion Wiley combined for 22 points Friday in the Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic.

-- Trimble and Nickens rank as the Nos. 6 and 7 shooters in the Class of 2014, according to Scout.com’s Evan Daniels.

-- All five of the Terps’ Class of 2014 signees rank among the top 100 players in 247Sports.com’s final class rankings. Rivals.com ranked all but Michal Cekovsky among the top 106 players in its own final rankings, with Cekovsky being an unlisted four-star prospect.

-- Trayvon Reed, Trimble, Nickens and Wiley will play in the Capital Classic, held Saturday night at T.C. Williams High School (Va.). General-admission tickets are $15.

-- Class of 2015 forward target Esa Ahmad met Wednesday with head coach Mark Turgeon and assistants Bino Ranson and Dustin Clark, saying afterward that he’s “really big” on Maryland. Here’s the recruit and recruiter themselves:

-- Class of 2015 center target Diamond Stone reportedly also received a visit from the Terps on Wednesday night.

-- Class of 2015 guard target Josh Reaves picked up an offer Tuesday from Maryland. Wake Forest and Georgetown also recently offered the four-star Paul VI (Va.) prospect. View highlights below:
