Basketball Recruiting, Young-Wiseman

Sean Mosely was great news. Rumors of this had passed for awhile, but it's finally, 100% official. Outside of that, very little Terp-related news.

Matt Bracken, blogger for the Sun, interviewed Evan Daniels, a scout for the appropriately named Scout.com. Check out the link for the full interview, but here's a quick excerpt. These two caught my attention:

4.) One report from Las Vegas suggested that Glendale, Ariz., forward Colin Borchert was close to committing to Maryland. Scout.com later debunked that, saying the recruitment was in its 'infancy.' How interested are the Terps, and what type of player is Borchert? Who's after him?

From what I understand Maryland's staff has done some initial work with Borchert and are still in the evaluation stage. They have not offered him a scholarship and are still scouting him and a number of other guys at that position. Borchert has had a wide array of interest. To go with Maryland, schools like California, USC, Oklahoma State, Nebraska and UNLV have all spent some time recruiting him.

5.) Maryland reportedly has offers out to Williams, Robinson, Montrose Christian forward and Baltimore native Terrell Vinson and Findlay (Nev.) Prep forward Clarence Trent. How are the Terps' chances with each recruit?

Maryland is certainly in the mix with Williams and Vinson. They've spent some time with those two and I know they recently offered Williams, who is really starting to blow up on a national level. Vinson recently indicated to me that he would like to take a trip to Maryland in the near future.

He's also looking at Georgetown, Villanova and Loyola Marymount. He's set to visit LMU this coming weekend. Maryland is certainly recruiting Robinson too, and have made some headway, but I think Kansas, Texas and Memphis seem to be the schools to beat for him at this point. Trent's recruitment has been wide open and honestly tough to get a good feel for. A lot of people think Arkansas is ultimately the school out in front, but Trent never will name favorites and seems to be just taking everything in.

Didn't think the Borchert rumor was true. As for Vinson, good news. I'm just wondering what Loyala Marymount's doing in there.

As to the other news I alluded to in the title, Duke has had a killer few days in football recruiting. Go ahead, do a double-take. They actually pulled in six not absolutely terrible commits on Tuesday camp. And nearly committing was Anthony Young-Wiseman, a athlete from Maryland. He'll likely be a corner, though WR and safety are definite possibilities. However, he decide just then. He did say he's not going to make any more visits. He sounds very high on Duke, and UMD's chance to bring him in may be diminishing.
