Maryland recruiting roundup: Aug. 17

Maryland has been busy on the recruiting trail over the past few days, doling out another round of offers and making the cut on the lists of some highly touted recruits. Here's a look at some of the action from the last week.

WR Isaiah Robertson, Nequa Valley (Ill.)

Robertson, a four-star recruit in the class of 2017 according to Rivals announced the Terps' offer late Sunday evening, and Maryland joins Illinois, Iowa, Central Michigan and Toledo as schools pursuing him. Rivals ranks Robertson as the No. 3 player in Illinois and the No. 22 wide receiver nationally. He has good size — he's listed at 6-foot-2 or 6-foot-3, depending on the recruiting service — and his highlight video shows him as a fluid, easy runner with long strides.

The Terps joined the fray for this member of the defending Virginia 6A state champions Sunday, adding their offer to a list that includes Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Ole Miss and Virginia Tech, among a host of others. Rivals lists Crosby as a four-star recruit in the class of 2017, the No. 3 player in Virginia and the No. 7 defensive tackle in the country. He hails from talent-rich Virginia Beach and appears to be an exceptional athlete — check out the stiff arm on this touchdown run from December.

OLB Teradja Mitchell, Bayside (Va.)

Maryland dipped back into the class of 2018 and joined Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Ohio State and N.C. State among those pursuing Mitchell, another player from Virginia Beach. He's listed at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, and his highlight video shows an instinctive linebacker who can chase down a play away from him and deliver a punishing hit.

RB B.J. Daniels, Melbourne (Fla.)

The Terps join Florida Atlantic as Daniels' second offer, according to Rivals. Unrated by Rivals in the class of 2017, Daniels rushed for 1,473 yards and 14 touchdowns as a sophomore and earned Florida Class 7A all-state honorable mention honors.

OLB Anthony Hines, Plano East (Texas)

Maryland got in the discussion for this highly sought after 2017 prospect — he had 76 offers, according to Scout — last week and survived his cut-down process to make his top 20 on Saturday. Hines, a four-star prospect and Rivals' No. 8 outside linebacker nationally also has Ohio State, Notre Dame, Florida, Penn State and UCLA on his list in what should be a heated recruiting battle. According to Scout, Hines is looking at schools with strong business programs, and that played a role in narrowing down his choices.

ATH Derrek Pitts, South Charleston (W.Va.)

The Terps crossed the border to offer Pitts, a four-star recruit in 2017 who is ranked as the top player in West Virginia by Rivals. Pitts, a two-way player at South Charleston, holds offers from West Virginia, Auburn, Clemson, Nebraska and Virginia Tech. He earned all-state honors and racked up 36 tackles for loss as a sophomore. Pitts' sophomore year highlight tape showcases an explosive athlete with burst across the line of scrimmage, not to mention breakaway speed on offense.
