Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

The Baltimore Sun

Maryland's search for a 2012 point guard has led to Southern California.

According to Nation of Blue recruiting analyst Garrett Tucker, the Terps are "now expressing interest in 2012 point guard Trey Dickerson of Price HS." 

Dickerson, an unrated prospect from Van Nuys, Calif., is also reportedly starting to hear from Georgia Tech and USC. The 6-foot-1 senior is a New York City native who has spent his entire high school career in California. Coast 2 Coast Hoops reported earlier this month that Dickerson was hearing mostly from Niagara, Siena, Montana State, San Jose State, and Loyola.

Check out a short clip of Dickerson dunking below.

* Maryland's fourth commitment in the 2012 class, Queen Anne's County power forward Damonte Dodd, was profiled by his hometown paper, the Star Democrat of Easton, and The Washington Post.

“I honestly was just as clueless as a doorknob,” Dodd said Wednesday, recounting a whirlwind 24 hours. “I didn’t know what was coming.”

* The Houston Chronicle this week had a feature on Terps junior guard targets Andrew and Aaron Harrison.

Then again, Andrew, who runs the point, is ranked higher than his twin in most recruiting rankings. That matters little to either, as each is listed among the top 10 juniors in the country. They were offered college scholarships in the seventh grade and have narrowed their school choice to Baylor, Kentucky, Maryland and Villanova.

* Maryland women's forward signee Tierney Pfirman powered South Williamsport (Pa.) to a 62-48 win over Southern Columbia.

Pfirman grabbed down 14 rebounds (11 defensive) and [Jamie] Steer grabbed 10. Each player finished the double-double with 23 points. Pfirman and Steer also added three steals each and Pfirman had two blocks.

* Terps point guard commitment Chloe Pavlech helped Sycamore (Ohio) to a 56-40 win over St. Ursula.

Senior guard Lauren Hancher socred (sic) 11 points, and senior guard Chloe Pavlech had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

* UM point guard pledge Lexie Brown's North Gwinnett (Ga.) squad suffered a 53-38 loss to Norcross.

The Bulldogs received 25 points from junior Lexie Brown, who was saddled with foul trouble for much of the first half.

* The Washington Post's Josh Barr caught up this week with Terps signee Stefon Diggs. The five-star wide receiver discussed his reasons for choosing Maryland.

“It was always in the back of my mind, something I was comfortable with,” said Diggs, who also wanted to stay near his family, including his eighth grade brother. “I really started feeling comfortable a month or so before, when the process was settling down.”
