A Note from DBR - 10/24/08

10/24/2008 3:30:11 PM Before we get into DBR's latest from the recruiting trail; the Terps need to care of business on Saturday. No excuses. If we aren't 6-2 24 hours from now, I am giving up on the season (not really, but I am damn tired of the inconsistency).

As for the updae, I can't tell you how excited I am for the Leek Leek era. I don't care about the kid's skills. This needs to happen.

The week started off great with the commitment of Jordan Williams (JW plans to sign a LOI with UMD on 11/12), and then we hit a speed bump with the news about Jin Soo Kim.

Lots was discussed yesterday about JSK's status so I won't rehash that only to say that "time keeps on tickin, tickin" into the future and I'm not feeling to confident this will work out in JSK/UMD's favor. This underscores the Terps efforts with Arsalan Kazemi. He has taken the SAT's and has an offer from UMD. Kazemi wants to sign early and from what I'm told Rice & UMD are his leaders. However Kazemi wants to play a lot as a freshman and that, along with his advisor living in Houston, could tip the scale in Rice's favor. Kazemi is a 6-7 combo forward and is scheduled to visit College Park on 11/8.

No feedback from Roscoe Smith or anyone that tripped with him to Maryland Madness. I kinda got the feeling that the main reason he came was to show support for his friend Sean Mosley. Word is that Smith is VERY high on UNC and the Tar Heels are showing interest but have not yet offered. Everyone I talk to indicate that as soon as UNC offer's Smith a schollie he'll pop to them.

Meanwhile, the coaches continue to do a good job of identifying recruits EARLY and getting them on campus for visits. Today two recruits will be making unofficial visits along with their coach...someone named Keith Gatlin LOL.

The players are 7-0 freshman (class of 2012) Deng Leek, and his brother , 6-6 Leek Leek, a sophomore (class of 2011).

In other recruiting news, Junior forward Marcus Thornton, 6-8, is scheduled to make an unofficial visit on Monday. And, a kid DBR would love to see UMD get, junior forward/center Will Regan will be on campus on November 14 for the game against Bucknell, and will stay over for the football game against UNC.

Terps have an open practice at 12:15pm on Saturday.
