Five-star lineman, four-star wideout from Fla. taking official visit to Maryland this weekend

Byron Cowart, Ryan Davis have Terps among top five schools entering game vs. West Virginia

Two high-profile recruits will be in attendance when Maryland takes on West Virginia on Saturday in College Park.

Defensive end Byron Cowart and wide receiver Ryan Davis are scheduled to take official visits to Maryland this weekend, a source confirmed.

Cowart, from Seffner, Fla., is ranked as the top player in the Class of 2015 by Rivals.com.

Davis, from St. Petersburg, Fla., is ranked a four-star prospect by Rivals.

Both were in town for Maryland's "Big Show" event earlier this summer and reportedly have spoken high of the Terps ever since.

Cowart and Davis have said Maryland is among the top five schools they are considering, although Cowart is reportedly more likely to end up somewhere like Oregon or Florida.

Either way, Cowart and Davis taking one of their five official visits to Maryland is a positive for the Terps, and Maryland will have a chance to improve its standing with both this weekend.

It wouldn't hurt either if the Terps put forth a good showing against West Virginia.

Rivals and 247Sports had previously reported that Cowart and Davis were planning on visiting Maryland this weekend.

NOTES: Maryland offensive lineman Evan Mulrooney practiced Thursday for the first time since getting a viral infection shortly before the start of preseason practice in early August. Coach Randy Edsall said Mulrooney should be on the Terps’ two-deep next week. Mulrooney originally was expected to compete with Silvano Altamirano for Maryland’s starting left guard job, and his return will improve the depth at center and guard. … Edsall said the Terps’ scout team players of the week were freshman wide receiver Juwann Winfree (offense), safety J.T. Ventura (defense) and running back Tehuti Miles (special teams).
