Marcus Applefield, Weeki Wachee OL (6-7, 275)

The latest: Applefield earned his 20th offer Wednesday, from Maryland, Hornets coach Mark Lee said in a text message. The Terps are his first offer in - gasp! - a month.

Offers: Marshall, UMass, Rutgers, FAU, Vanderbilt, USF, FIU, UCF, Kentucky, Virginia, Purdue, West Virginia, South Alabama, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Syracuse, Missouri, Wake Forest, Oklahoma State, Maryland

Last season: Applefield was one of the top performers for a growing Weeki Wachee program. He opened holes for the Hornets’ 1,500-yard ground game and helped lead the team to three wins in the team’s first season of all-varsity competition.

They say: ESPN rates Applefield as a three-star prospect and one of the state's top 130 prospects. Scout gives him three-star status and ranks him as the nation's No. 44 offensive tackle. Rivals considers him a two-star recruit.

We say: Applefield has blown up this spring to become one of Tampa Bay’s hottest recruits. His lean, 275-pound frame projects well as a D-I tackle. The first major college recruit in program history is putting Weeki Wachee on the map. Don't be surprised if a few more offers trickle in before the fall, when Applefield could make some official visits.
