Football Recruiting Update

I know all the focus is on basketball right now (and rightfully so), but since my work at Turtle Sports Report has forced me to look to the gridiron when I only want to see hardwood and tank tops (Excuse the double entendre), I can’t help but notice that Ralph Friedgen and his staff has put together a pretty good recruiting class.This class is pret [...] Read More »

Terps Add Pe'Shon Howard

Pe'Shon is listed as a three-star combo guard.  He's 6'2" and can shoot the three ball (something desperately needed in College Park).  My question is did the Terps give away Terrence Ross' scholarship or are we hoping that Ross is still coming? If any readers are in the know regarding how the coaching staff views their chances with Ross, I'd lo [...] Read More »

Ashton Pankey to Visit Maryland

Ashton Pankey ESPN PF #39 will visit MD on 10/16.  Zagsblog says MD has offered him a scholarship. Does this mean the coaching staff thinks that the Terps may not come in first in the race to land Tobias Harris?I don't know what to make of this.  I would guess that Pankey will not sign if Harris picks the Terps because he won't start over Harris.  [...] Read More »

Mychal Parker Commits to Terps for 2010

Born Ready Will Not Suit Up For Terps

Reader, Mr. Cavendish (why the formality?) pointed out in the previous thread that the Baltimore Sun (fifth paragraph after the jump) is reporting that Maryland has ended its recruitment of Lance Stephenson aka Born Ready.Terp Nation seemed to be divided 50/50 on whether or not we wanted Born Ready.  Personally, I was for it. It's been so long sinc [...] Read More »

DBR Update On Terp Recruiting Targets

In his own words, our very own Diamondback Russ summarizes his weekend of watching AAU ball. Enjoy! I checked out an AAU tournament in Saratoga Springs this past weekend to Albany City Rocks (ACR) in action. Their 17U team was dominant, but when you can start a lineup that includes three top 150 recruits in the class of 2010, locals are disapp [...] Read More »

Are The Terps Out Of Born Ready Sweepstakes?

The ubiquitous Zag's Blog is reporting that both St. John's and Maryland are out of the running for Lance Stephenson's services.   If true, I can't say that I am surprised.  The fact that he hasn't committed to either yet is evidence enough that he is not happy with his options.Zag is reporting that Arizona and Memphis have entered the fray and he [...] Read More »
