Maryland football coach DJ Durkin announced Wednesday that eight players who committed to the Terps for next season have enrolled in school and will be eligible to participate in spring practice. Two of them, safety Markquese Bell and cornerback Deon Jones, are considered four-star prospects and are the two highest-rated players among the 28 who have committed to Maryland for the 2017 season. Bell is ranked No. 88 in ESPN's top 300, with Jones at No. 155. Among the other early enrollees, who won't count against the 25-player limit for the team's 2017 recruiting class, junior college transfers Nick Underwood, a linebacker, and Alex Woods, a cornerback, were in the top 100 nationally coming out of high school a year ago. Also enrolling early are Fofie Bazzie, a three-star cornerback from Gaithersburg; brothers Bryce and Ryan Brand, a three-star linebacker and junior college transfer quarterback, respectively, from Detroit; and Tyran Hunt, a three-star offensive lineman from Courtland, Va.
