Here is the video of Hawkins committing to Maryland. Interesting to hear that Maryland first offered him a scholarship a few years ago (his Sophomore year) as a running back and now he's being recruited as a CB...pretty amazing that he made that transition in just under 2 years. I think he could still play the RB position if he wanted to, but from what I've heard, he wants to play defense.
Hawkins held a noon time press conference in which he announced that he'll be attending the University of Maryland. This is a HUGE recruit for the Terps, especially since they were competing with Penn State, Michigan and other big schools for Travis' services.
In Basketball news, I was able to talk with Keith Cavanugh, writer for the Terrapin Times, today about Jin Soo Kim. He wasn't too optimistic....I'll have more on that later.
