Maryland football's 2017 recruiting class ranks as high as 11th

National Signing Day was a massive success for Maryland's football program under DJ Durkin. His first class after a full recruiting cycle, Durkin attracted 11 four-star recruits to the program. 

He also drew 17 of the 28 players from Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. According to the Maryland athletic department, eight of the local players received All-WCAC honors. 

Scout.com ranks the Terrapins recruiting class highest at No. 11 in the country. Rivals.com ranks them 16th, 247 Sports ranks them 18th and ESPN ranks them 20th. 

Durkin's success attracting talent shouldn't come as a surprise after he was named Recruiter of the Year by Rivals back in 2012 as part of Florida's staff. 

Here's the full list of 2017 signees.

Maryland falls to No. 17, Virginia out of top 25 in latest AP Poll

A 1-1 week dropped the Maryland Terrapins men's basketball team five spots in the latest Associated Press poll.

Maryland defeated then-No. 11 Ohio State handily at home this past Monday, 67-55. It was the Terps best win of the season, where they played lockdown defense for much of the evening.

But on Friday, Maryland was embarrassed by unranked Iowa on the road. The Hawkeyes held Maryland to just 49 points, cruising to an 18-point victory.

In three true road games this season, Maryland is winless. It's worth noting that Maryland remains perfect at the Xfinity Center, however.

The Big Ten has five teams in the latest Top 25, but none higher than Michigan State at No. 15 overall.

The Terps weren't the only MId-Atlantic team to slip. Virginia fell outside the Top 25 following a loss to Syracuse this past weekend.

Maryland also plans to provide upgrades to the Track and Field stadium, Soccer stadium and expansion to Gossett Hall (Football).
