Maryland's standout commit from Bishop O'Connell gets nod for best talent in the area.

Bishop O'Connell's Melo Trimble has been named The Washington Post's All-Met Player of the Year for his prolific point guard play throughout his senior season, it was announced Friday. Trimble is the first Maryland commit to receive the honor since Johnny Rhodes in 1991 -- the first year of the award.

The class of 2014 standout signed his letter of intent with the University of Maryland in November and was named to the McDonald's All-American team mid-season in late January. The Terrapins haven't had an All-American recruit since Mike Jones in 2003.

Trimble is a terrific ball handler with the ability to shoot the basketball from long range. He identifies as a "true point guard," and averaged 23.1 points per game in his senior campaign, setting a single-game school record with 47 points against Gonzaga. The 6'2" spark plug is a four-star recruit who is considered the 34th-best prospect in the nation and the 2nd-best in Virginia according to 247sports composite. He is ranked 30th in his class by ESPN 100.

Fellow Maryland commit Dion Wiley was also named first-team All-Met.

With Trimble and the rest of the Top 10 recruiting class coming to College Park, Terps fans should see some exciting basketball in the near future.
