Ralph Friedgen's Maryland Terrapins may have edged closer in recent weeks to securing the commitment of a nearby Pennsylvania prep.
R.J. Dill, a Camp Hill (Pa.) Trinity offensive tackle prospect, lists Maryland as his favorite school, leading offers from Uconn, Temple and a host of others.
"I really like the coaching staff," Dill said. "It feels like home, and it's a 90-minute drive from my house."

When asked to give a description of his ideal school, Dill gave a run-down that sounded a lot like his take on Maryland.
"It has to feel like home, it has to be a gut feeling, I can't really describe it. There has to be something in your heart that says 'I gotta be at this place'. It also has to be a location where I can get home if need to, and it has to be a place with a great education."
A late entry into the Dill sweepstakes may be Boston College, where the 6-foot-6, 274-pound lineman will attend camp in late June.
However, the Eagles won't be able to wait too long to make their push. Dill plans to announce formally on July 26, his birthday, in order to share the day with his family and honor their supportive efforts.
Dill has also visited Rutgers, Michigan, Michigan State and Pitt, and plans to camp at as many of those places as his schedule allows.
