Maryland Minute 4.5.13: Terps commit Trimble racks up honors

Streeter Lecka

A bit of recruiting news, plus transfer shopping and the requisite Will Crest link.

Romelo Trimble named DMVelite Northern Virginia Player of the Year
He was dominant all year, so it's not a big surprise, especially because most of the talent in NoVA is younger (Marcus Derrickson, for example). But it's always good to see Terp commits get local plaudits - it only helps with reputation.

Trimble also named to WaPo's All-Met First Team
Kris Jenkins was Player of the Year, but Melo is one of only three non-seniors to make the list - the other two are Terps targets Dion Wiley and Marcus Derrickson. Major props for this one, again, and he'll almost certainly be the frontrunner for PoY next season.

Surgery or not, Terps guard Seth Allen itching for quick return
Would Maryland have beaten Iowa with Seth on the floor? Eh, maybe, maybe not. It would've been closer, of that I have no doubt (see the impact that Iowa's injured freshman, Mike Gesell, had). But an NIT game is nothing compared to getting him healthy as quickly as possible to build in the offseason.

Markus and Barker on replacing Alex Len
Not too much interesting here, except for Markus' comment that a scout told him "Darko [who is oft compared to Len] didn't want to play basketball. You can see Alex does." Which is true; there's a passion to Alex's play. It's not always there, which is problematic, but it's interesting that they notice the difference in personality.

Jeff Goodman's massive transfer list, v1.0
Names to know: Anrio Adams from Kansas, Josh Davis from Tulane, Lasan Kromah from George Washington, and Sheldon McClellan from Texas. Davis and Kromah could play immediately; Davis would probably be a starter, Kromah a backup 2-guard to help take the pressure off the young'uns.

InsideMDSports: Dunbar QB William Crest talks about Terps
Requisite. Somebody says something about Will Crest, even if it's only that he's just taking his time and really has nothing to say about recruiting at the moment, I'm linking it. (Even if Caleb Henderson might even be is preferred by this point. DMV is the future.)
