Weekend Wrap: Terps target Rysheed Jordan stars at Grind Sessions

The Baltimore Sun

Maryland point guard target Rysheed Jordan lived up to his Top 25 ranking over the weekend in D.C.

Jordan, a Philadelphia native that claims offers from Alabama, Drexel, Kansas, La Salle, Maryland, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Seton Hall, Temple, Villanova and Virginia, was a standout performer at the Under Armour Grind Sessions. Rivals.com's Eric Bossi wrote that "there isn't a point guard in the country with a better blend of size, athleticism and ability to create." Bossi caught up with the four-star prospect after the event to talk recruiting.

According to Jordan, the Terrapins have been coming at him the hardest and he will definitely give them an official visit. Jordan also mentioned that he's looking to set up an unofficial visit to Penn State in the near future.

* Madison Jones, a senior point guard from Raleigh, N.C., that drew some interest from Maryland, has committed to Wake Forest.

“Wake Forest has outstanding coaches who can help me develop as a player, and Wake Forest offers a great education,” Jones told HighSchoolOT.com. “I’m excited about the future of the program and I really like that Wake Forest reminds me of a bigger version of Ravenscroft. I feel like I’ll fit in perfectly. This has been something I’ve dreamed of and it’s the best possible way to end an incredible senior year.”

* Terps women's point guard signee Chloe Pavlech scored seven points in the 21st annual Ohio-Kentucky All-Star game.

“It was a lot of fun and a lot of great players, and not just on the court,” said Pavlech, who has signed with Maryland. “I thought when we came back that we had this but Kentucky played hard. It was a fun game.”
