Weekly recruiting roundup

The Maryland men's basketball program's search for a 2011 big man has turned to the junior college ranks.

InsideMDSports.com reported Thursday that the Terps are "moving" on Robert Goff, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound power forward from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College.

Goff, who will have two years of eligibility, signed with Oklahoma last fall. But the three-star prospect came back on the market this week.

Goff signed with OU in November prior to his sophomore season at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College. When Goff signed, it was to play for former Sooner coach Jeff Capel. When he was fired last month, it led to a change of heart. He asked OU to release him from the letter of intent.

• Former Bladensburg star and Kansas State transfer Wally Judge will visit Maryland this weekend and Washington the next, according to Adam Zagoria.

Still, sources said Rutgers remains the team to beat after the 6-foot-9 Judge visited the campus two weeks ago and was hosted by Dane Miller and Austin Carroll.

• Two scouting services released their final class of 2011 rankings this week. In Scout.com's Top 100, Terps shooting guard signee Nick Faust checked in at No. 49. Faust was ranked 48th in Rivals.com's Top 150, while Martin Breunig made a surprise appearance at No. 137.

Joe Davis of ScoutsFocus.com tweeted an update Thursday on the recruitment of potential Terps forward target Jared Guest.

Top 4 right now is VCU, UGA, Clemson, TN. Florida called yesterday.

• NBE Basketball caught up this week with Brewster (N.H.) Academy center Mitch McGary.

He’s already taken trips to Illinois, Marquette, Purdue and Indiana and is attempting to plan visits to Cincinnati, Maryland, Florida, Indiana and Texas.

Football recruiting

• Maryland cornerback signee Michael Williams ran the fastest 400-meter hurdles time for high school runners in the country last weekend at the McNamara Mustangs Invitational.

Williams, a key member of DeMatha’s 4x400 relay team that finished the indoor season with the fastest time in the country, showed tremendous strength in the 400 hurdles. He led from the start and ran away from Oxon Hill’s Kyle Smith to win in 54.28 seconds. That time eclipsed the 54.43 run by Antonio Blanks of Dunbar (Ohio).

• The Sporting News named Good Counsel's Stefon Diggs one of the top cornerback prospects in the 2012 class.

He's a Maryland product, and nearby schools like Maryland, Virginia Tech, Rutgers and Pitt should be considered potential threats to land him. The rest of the nation's powers won't quit trying to get him.
