Coming off a 2-10 record, you wouldn't expect Maryland to be one of the teams off to a good start for the 2011 class, but the Terps have put together a nice core of eight verbal commitments so far this recruiting cycle.

On Thursday, the Terps picked up a verbal from receiver Nigel King (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield).

"I really felt at home," King told ESPN affiliate InsideMdSports.com. "I like the coaches, toured the campus, liked the facilities and I know I will get a great education there."
