One of Maryland's top point guard targets is reportedly making a trip to College Park this weekend.
The 6-4 junior guard has narrowed his list of scholarship offers to Maryland, Temple, Rutgers, Villanova, Drexel, and La Salle. He'll pick this summer.
He holds offers Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Seton Hall, Central Florida, Maryland, and “a bunch of others.” Cassell has visited Maryland and wants to use more visits but doesn’t have any planned at this time or know exactly where he wants to take them. He stressed that no one is a leader and all the schools mentioned are still even for him at this point.
The 6-foot-9, 280-pound Cleare has garnered attention as one of the nation’s top 30 high school seniors, averaging 26 points per game while shooting 83 percent. When he arrives at Maryland next fall, he will represent the cornerstone of Coach Mark Turgeon’s rebuilding project.
Layman finished with 26 points, 13 during each half, while taking down 14 rebounds and blocking three shots.
A'Lexus Harrison had 10 points, 21 rebounds and three blocks. Her teammate Miqueara Lewis had 12 points and 11 rebounds while Infiniti Alston added 11 points.
Tierney Pfirman led the Mounties with 28 points.
When she came back, Howard (24 points, 11 rebounds) showed just how strong – and smart – she can be.
* Maryland's consensus Top 50 recruiting class could receive a significant boost this weekend.
Stefon Diggs, a five-star wide receiver prospect from Good Counsel, is expected to take his final official visit this weekend to Maryland. MaxPreps.com reported that the Terps could have a legitimate shot.
Former Illinois head coach Ron Zook, who was impressed with Diggs even as a ninth grader, believes there's a chance that Diggs will stay at home to play for Maryland.
Dan Hellie of NBC4 in Washington, meanwhile, tweeted that Diggs is leaning "heavily towards Urban Meyer and Ohio State." Florida is also reportedly a serious contender for Diggs' commitment.
