Maryland Minute 8.10.11 - Recruiting News Galore

The thought of him, Cleare, and the Harrison Twins on the same team is mind boggling.

H/t to Ben B. for most of today's links.

2013 PG Rysheed Jordan visiting Maryland
Between Britt and the Harrisons, I'm fairly certain that Jordan isn't going to be a big priority, but better to have him as an option than not. #25 overall on ESPN.

My Take: Certainly not a bad plan C to have.

Tease: McGary talking to Harrisons, Cleare about playing at Maryland
Evil tease, via @insidemdsports.

McGary says he's been talking Shaquille Cleare and the Harrison Twins about playing together at Maryland. #terps

Let's be clear(e) here: everyone is talking to him about playing with them. Brad Beal at Florida, Quinn Cook at Duke, whoever it is that Michigan has, Kendall Marshall at UNC. It's what happens. But of course it can't hurt, and it makes me feel way better about the twins. After all, doesn't sound like - though they may and it just isn't said - they're talking to him about playing at Kentucky, does it?

Turgeon "never heard" of Ukrainian prospect Volodymyr Gerun
There's been some rumblings that the Terps were going to add the 6-10 Ukrainian big man. Apparently, though, there's one hold up: Turgeon's never heard of him. - BG

MaxPreps Update 2012 Rankings
MaxPreps used to be a bit of a joke, but Jeff Borzello, Jeff Goodman, and Gary Parrish do the rankings now, and they're all pretty respected. Not Scout or Rivals level, but worthy of a look regardless. Mitch McGary is at #3 and Amile Jefferson is at #13(!). Shaquille Cleare stays high on the list at #25, too. What's really interesting: they like Jake Layman too, putting him at #57, ahead of Elijah Macon who's at #61. Others: Prince Ibeh at #82, Robert Upshaw at #45, and Robert Carter at #23.

ESPNU Also Updates Super 60 2013 Rankings
Jabari Parker, Nerlens Noel, and Julius Randle are 1-2-3, as they'll probably be across the board. But Andrew Harrison is all the way up at #4, and Aaron has risen back up to #7. Nate Britt, meanwhile, is now #15, a rise of more than 15 spots. Other notables: Kennedy Meeks at #29, BeeJay Anya at #37, Aquille Carr at #59, and more recent target Kuran Iverson at #30.

Former Terp Robbie Rogers nets first goal of Jurgen Klinsmann era
Take that, Akron.

My Take: He actually had a pretty solid game in addition to the goal.  Could have had another one if not for an egregious foul in the 86th minute.
