Maryland Minute - 08.02.10 - Recruiting News Aplenty

Lots of stuff going on related to both football and basketball recruiting, so lets jump right in...

Harkless Trims List to Eight, Maryland Makes It

The 6-foot-8 Queens, N.Y. native wrote on Twitter he’s considering the following schools after spending next year at South Kent (Conn.): St. John’s, Maryland, Florida, N.C. State, Cincinnati, Rutgers, Arizona and Memphis.

I asked Harkless if that means UConn is definitely out and he said, "Yes."

I thought UConn was one of the more dangerous teams for his services. I wouldn't be surprised if it came down to SJU, Maryland, and Florida. Gonna be a heck of a recruitment, hopefully Sterling Gibbs can make a difference. -BB

My take - Go get'em, Sterling.

Recruiting Report: Terps DE recruit Dontez Tyler 'a gem' for UM
As Bracken said on Twitter, sounds like a high-reward, low-risk type of commitment. May not be a star, but what's the worst that could happen? -BB

"I was talking to him the other day, and I think the sky’s the limit," Privott said. "As a North Carolina guy who didn’t get much attention from schools in North Carolina, I just think he’s a gem. I think Maryland got a gem. I think he’s really going to do well for us this year and have a great college career at Maryland as well."

Scout: July's Over, Now Real Race Begins
This article really makes me think that unless Nick Faust has picked up a major offer - think Duke, UNC, UCLA, etc. - that we just don't know about, that he'll be committing soon. We know he likes Maryland and Marquette, and he's already visited both. Just a matter of time. Telep seems to indicate that commitments will start rolling in soon. -BB

My take - Please, go get him Gary.

Terp Target Rod Days Commits to UCF
You never like seeing a guy commit elsewhere, but it could be worse than Days. There are quite a few wing targets ahead of him on the radar - Nick Faust, Maurice Harkless, Dorian Finney-Smith, LaQuinton Ross - and I liked Devin Langford almost as much as Days. He's a big commitment for UCF, but you can't take him at Maryland just yet with so many other targets on the board. -BB

PSA: If You Haven't Already, Vote for the TT Big Board!
If you haven't voted yet, be sure to go ahead and give it a whirl. We want as many repsonses as we can get.

Fans Ally For Struggling Terps - CSN Washington
Glad the students are still behind the least the ones they talked to. Hopefully they'll show up in support...

Maryland's Stocked Fridge: No. 29 Lance Ball -
Lance Ball was pretty good when he was here...
