Maryland had another busy week recruiting, as Mark Turgeon continues to hone in on the 2015 class while a large number of football targets saw Maryland's big win over West Virginia.
Old friend Sam Cassell Jr., now at Chipola College, took an official visit to Connecticut last week and will visit Louisville this week. Marquette and Missouri are also very much in the mix.
Jaylen Brown, one half of the 2015 Wheeler boys, took an unofficial visit to Georgia. Brown and Daniel Giddens (who as far as we know did not visit Georgia) are five-star prospects from Georgia who Mark Turgeon is pursuing very seriously.
Now for football news:
2014 three-star cornerback target Marcel Joly, from Forestville High School, committed to Iowa.
A list of players who took unofficial visits to Maryland and saw the beatdown of West Virginia:
Tabor also announced which schools he would visit for his five available official trips. Not surprisingly, Maryland made the cut.
Maryland commit Johnathan Thomas ran for 228 yards and two touchdowns in his game this weekend and had this 107-yard interception return for a touchdown that was SportsCenter's number one play.
Fellow 2014 Maryland commit Will Ulmer ran for more than 100 yards and had a 65-yard score in a loss to DeMatha.
Another Maryland commit, Good Counsel star Jesse Aniebonam, suffered what looked to be a scary injury but tests showed it was not serious.
Unranked 2014 athlete/running back Marquel Dickerson, from North Point, ran 31 times for 273 yards and four touchdowns in a win over Lackey. We have added him to the Big Board, despite his current lack of a Maryland offer.
Unranked 2014 running back Sterling Dailey, from Virginia, had 196 yards and three touchdowns in his team's win this weekend. We have also added him to the Big Board without an offer.
Three-star 2014 safety Deandre Scott took his first official visit, to Nebraska.
Four-star 2015 wide receiver Jabari Greenwood had six catches for 111 yards in Gonzaga's win over Good Counsel.
Four-star 2015 quarterback Nick Johns went 11/22 for 215 yards in Gonzaga's win over Good Counsel.
Four-star 2015 Floridian offensive guard Kendrick Norton visited Florida and received an offer from Mississippi State.
Four-star 2015 Virginia offensive tackle Austin Clark took an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech.
Four-star 2015 Pennsylvania safety Jay Stocker took an unofficial visit to Rutgers.
Four-star 2015 Ohio tight end C.J. Conrad received an offer from Duke and will visit Pittsburgh this weekend.
Three-star 2015 Florida safety Ben Edwards was offered by Purdue and NC State and visited Georgia Tech.
2016 athlete Trevon Diggs, Stefon's brother, caught six passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns for Wootton this weekend.
