Three Maryland commits ranked in updated Rivals250

Rivals released its updated rankings for its top 100 and top 250 players for the Class of 2016 earlier this week, and a few high-profile Maryland commits, along with players with offers from the Terps, are featured.

Maryland has two commits in the top 100. Good Counsel linebacker Keandre Jones checks in at No. 50 as a four-star recruit while four-star Bullis quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., arguably the most high profile player in the Terps' recruiting class, is No. 88. DeMatha wide receiver Tino Ellis is ranked No. 170, giving Maryland three commits in the top 250.

Five-star linebacker Rahshaun "Shaq" Smith, who transferred to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., from St. Frances, is ranked No. 14. Smith decommitted from Clemson on Aug. 6, and the Terps are considered to be in the mix to land him.

As part of a loaded DeMatha team this fall, offensive lineman Terrance Davis checks in at No. 46 in Rivals' rankings. Listed at 6-feet-4, 307 pounds, the guard is also considering a host of Big Ten Conference, along with other national powers.

St. John's defensive end Terrell Hall is ranked No. 54 nationally and No. 3 in Washington. He decommitted from Ohio State on Aug. 3 and has interest from Alabama, Texas A&M, Penn State, Florida and more.

Avalon's Trevon Diggs, the younger brother of former Maryland star Stefon Diggs, is ranked No. 120. A wide receiver and cornerback, the 6-foot, 188-pound Diggs is also being heavily pursued by Alabama.

Maryland is tied for fifth in the Big Ten with three Rivals250 commits. Minnesota also has three. Not surprisingly, defending national champion Ohio State has nine commits ranked in the top 250, while Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State each have six.
