Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

The Baltimore Sun

After his unofficial visit Tuesday to Maryland, Suitland point guard Roddy Peters spoke to about his recruitment.

"I'm wide open," Peters said. "People try to say that Maryland leads because they are right up the street, but I'm open to everybody right now."

That everybody that Peters is open to includes Georgetown, Xavier, UCLA, Memphis and Rutgers at the moment.

** The Harrison twins told Adam Zagoria this week that Baylor, Kentucky and Maryland are recruiting them the hardest.

“Maryland presents a lot of things,” Aaron said. “It’s close to my family, Coach [Mark] Turgeon recruited me when he was at Texas A&M. It’s close to my family, I like the way they play.”

Added Andrew: “It’s a  family atmosphere. The ACC is a great conference and Coach Turgeon is a good coach. Coach Bino [Ranson], I like those guys.”

** Tyler Ennis, who was reportedly offered by Maryland, committed this week to Syracuse.

UCLA, Louisville and Memphis were the other finalists, but Ennis chose the Orange largely because of its ideal location, the style favoured by head coach Jim Boeheim and the calibre of competition he will face there.

** Terps women's point guard commitment Lexie Brown is averaging six points, three rebounds and is shooting 45.5 percent from the field for the U.S. U-18 team playing this week in the FIBA Americas Championship in Puerto Rico. The U.S. is off to a 2-0 start.

** Andrew Isaacs, a four-star tight end prospect from Manchester, Conn., switched his commitment this week from Boston College to Maryland.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect also picked up scholarship offers from Connecticut and Rutgers along with interest from Iowa, Miami (Fla.) and Penn State.
