Here's Scout's take:
"Nick Faust, Baltimore Elite – It was pretty evident who the best player in the gym was on Friday night. And it took one half of basketball to figure it out. The 6-foot-5 wing had it rolling in every possible way. He scored with drives, pulled up from deep and attacked with pull-ups. Sporting the same jersey this his cousin Will Barton wore for Baltimore Elite, Faust played the role of a must-get high-major player quite well. Faust said said he has offers from Penn State, Oregon State, UNLV, UMass, Delaware, Drexel, DePaul and Maryland. With the July evaluation period around the corner, don’t be surprised to see his offer list double or triple."
And on Greg Lewis:
"Baltimore Elite big man Greg Lewis is claiming offers from South Florida, Xavier, Maryland, Villanova, Ohio State and UMass while Virginia Tech, Georgetown and Syracuse are looking at him, he says."
This is your territory, Bino.

Terps Make Early Contact w/ 2012 Montrezi Harrell
Good to hear that the staff was on a top prospect as early as they could be. (Yesterday, was the first day coaches could contact 2012 recruits.) By all accounts, the 6' 6 forward from N.C. seems like a stud.
Football recruiting momentum, where have you gone? - BB
It's Official: Cito Culver is a Yankee
He passed on Maryland. That really shouldn't surprise anyone. Very bittersweet: sucks that he's gone, but when he becomes a star we'll all know he's basically ours. Kinda like Moses Malone.
Okay, just sucks. - BB
Yow says she hasn't interviewed for N.C. State job
Per Tracking the Terps:
"I have not interviewed with the N.C. State Search committee and, in the past, have likewise declined to be interviewed by other universities who have shown interest in me."
Yow seems pretty content at Maryland but if there's one school that could pry her away it's probably N.C. State.
Faceoff: Review & preview: Maryland
The Sun's lacrosse blog looks back and forward at Maryland lacrosse. Their forecast?
Partly sunny. Many of the pieces are in place for Maryland to improve on this past season’s accomplishments, especially on defense and in the attack. The inexperience in the net is a significant concern, and the face-offs must be addressed. But perhaps more than anything else, hiring a head coach who can connect with the players the way Cottle did should be priority No. 1. That transition could determine how the Terps fare in 2011 and in the Atlantic Coast Conference, where 2010 national champion Duke, Virginia and North Carolina eagerly await.
