In this week's recruiting roundup, a future Terp comes to Comcast Center for a playoff game and, maybe, a preview of what's to come.

Football recruiting

-- Class of 2015 defensive back target Ashton White decommited from Virginia Tech on Saturday and reportedly will visit Maryland unofficially. This is the second time White has pledged to the Hokies, only to renege.

-- Class of 2015 offensive line target Ellis McKennie (McDonogh) visited Sunday for the Terps' win over Virginia. It's his second recruiting trip to Maryland, an early favorite for the three-star prospect.

-- Class of 2014 guard commit Dion Wiley had a game-high 30 points, including five 3-pointers, Friday in a 101-63 win over Oakland Mills in the Class 2A South regional championship Friday. Highlights from the rout are below. You can also view the entire game here, if you're that into that kind of recruiting completism.

Wiley and Potomac face No. 5 Patterson at Comcast Center in the state semifinals at 9 p.m. tonight.

-- Class of 2014 center commit Trayvon Reed was picked as one of the top defensive standouts in the class of 2014, according to ESPN Insider.
