A handful of prospects attended Maryland's annual Red-White games, including Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate 2016 two-way lineman Taro Lipscomb, who came away impressed with his experience.

"I had a great time on Friday, I got to talk to some of the coaches and see the facilities," Lipscomb said. "The coaches up there a lot were real cool, and they liked me a lot so that really made me feel like it was family."

Lipscomb and his teammates arrived a few hours before the spring game, to get a tour and check out the football facilities.

"We met up with coach Locksley when we got there and we saw the players lounge," said Lipscomb, who is an offensive lineman and defensive tackle for the Knights. "It was really cool they had some game systems in there, some flat screen TVs and a pool table. It seemed like a fun place for the players to spend time.

"Then we went on a tour of the facilities, and we saw the locker room and the training room," Lipscomb said. "I thought all of the facilities were really nice, I was impressed."

Lipscomb spoke with a few of the Maryland coaches during his visit, including in recruiter Mike Locksley, and recruiting coordinator Ryan Steinberg.

"Coach [Mike] Locksley said he liked my size for being a sophomore, and he thought I had a lot of potential," Lipscomb said. "He [Locksley] was joking around and just told me to keep eating, he said want me to get bigger."

The sophomore standout had just enough time to grab some food and snap a picture with head coach Randy Edsall, before heading out to the Terps scrimmage. During the scrimmage, Lipscomb paid close attention to the defense.

"I was watching the defense mostly because that's my main position," Lipscomb said. "I thought the safeties and corners were doing a good job because they had a few interceptions, they were doing great.

"I actually thought the offensive line did good job too because they were holding the defensive line pretty well, and the quarterback seemed to have plenty of time to throw," Lipscomb said. "The linebackers were really aggressive, they were the ones really getting through.

Lipscomb is still working to pick up his first offer, but he after his recent trip to College Park he has Maryland high on his list and he plans to attend a camp there this summer.

"I would be so excited if Maryland offered," Lipscomb said. "I don't want to say I would commit, but I would really be thinking about going to Maryland. I liked it a lot up there they were really nice."
