This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

It’s been an impressive summer for Maryland basketball 2019 commit Makhi Mitchell. He and twin brother Makhel have helped lead their travel teams to championships on both the local and national scene. Makhi was named UAA Defensive Player of the Year earlier this month.

Here’s his latest highlight tape from Courtside Films.

Mitchell is the No. 60 player and No. 14 center in the 2019 class; Makhel is No. 154 overall and No. 27 at that same position. They’ll play for Woodrow Wilson High School this year after being part of Montverde Academy’s 36-0 team in 2017-18. This summer, they starred on DC Premier, which posted an undefeated championship season on the Under Armour Association circuit along with titles at the UA Finals and Fab 48 in Las Vegas. They also won championships in the Capital Hoops Summer League and at the Maryland team camp.

The twins are the only two commits in Maryland’s 2019 class, but that’s enough for a top-10 spot in the current 247Sports team rankings.

Maryland’s Board of Regents voted Friday to take control of overseeing both investigations into Maryland football.

That’s the only headline news that came out of that meeting, although there’s a sentiment among many close to the situation that the clock is ticking on DJ Durkin, Damon Evans and Wallace Loh. Yesterday, Chick Hernandez brought some of this info to light on Twitter.

After opening its 2018 with a win, Maryland women’s soccer was shut out by James Madison yesterday.

Meanwhile, men’s soccer scrimmaged Clemson and volleyball held its Red-White scrimmage. We’ll have a lot more on both teams this week.

And here’s Yannick Ngakoue getting flagged for doing the Hingle McCringleberry celebration. (That’s a sentence I can’t say I ever saw myself typing.)
