It is a critical stretch for Maryland as National Signing Day approaches -- the first under new head coach DJ Durkin. With a handful of high-priority targets on campus for visits, Saturday's 100-65 blowout Maryland victory over Ohio State was a nice touch.
Some of those players were in attendance and tweeting about the game.

With former Virginia coach Mike London now coaching the team's defensive line and with Durkin, a noted defensive coach, leading the way, Maryland is in the running for the local 5-star.

Yulee is from a region of Virginia that London recruited heavily during his time in Charlottesville. He is rated by Rivals.com as the No. 3 inside linebacker in the class and the No. 181 overall prospect. He recently decommitted from Alabama.
Durkin made an appearance on Saturday at XFINITY Center, too, standing near the team's tunnel while he was shown on the big screen to a round of applause from the crowd.
