No Grant or Moto-is there a DC-Terps divide?



How ironic is the slogan for Under Armour "We must protect this house?" For years, Maryland area's best recruits went elsewhere to star for other programs. Mark Karcher to Temple, Rudy Guy to UConn, Kevin Durant to Texas and Michael Beasley to Kansas St. arejust a few of many that left from Maryland's backyard to have immediate impacts at other programs. With the latest news that Arnaud Moto and before him, Jerami Grant, didn't even listing Maryland as finalist in their recruitment, should Maryland fans be worried? Did Maryland not make their final list because there is still a divide between Maryland and local AAU and high school coaches, in the DC area specifically? Can you even name the last DC area player to play for the Terps? Is it still too early to tell if the hiring of Dalonte Hill can mend the fences that were notably broken or non-existent tenure of the previous head coach. Or could it have been due to Maryland not showing as much interest as other schools. Grant's name wasn't mentioned in relation to Maryland much if any before Mark Turgeon became the head coach. And we all no what happened to Maryland's recruitment of Moto after Justin Anderson initially gave his verbal commitment to Maryland. If there still is a divide, it will more than likely become evident if Moto and Grant's teammate from Team Takeover, Beejay Anya and DC Assualt's Nate Britt both spurn Maryland in 2013(unless other highly sought after recruits sign before they do). Some of Baltimore's finest recruits have played for the Maryland Terps, hopefully some of DC's best will join them and Maryland can live up to that slogan of protecting their house...along with some great players from the state of Texas.  I'm sure Terp fans wouldn't be opposed to that.
