Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

The Baltimore Sun

It's no secret that the Maryland men's basketball staff is aiming high for its 2013 class. Scout.com's updated rankings this week brought further evidence of the Terps' lofty recruiting goals.

Andrew Harrison checked in at No. 3 in the Top 100. The Maryland target is Scout's top-rated point guard in the country. Aaron Harrison followed his twin brother at No. 8. He's the top-ranked shooting guard nationally for 2013.

Rysheed Jordan, another Terps point guard target, checked in at No. 26 overall. He's the sixth-ranked prospect at the 1.

Other prospects mentioned in connection with Maryland that cracked Scout.com's Top 100 are: DeMatha center BeeJay Anya (11), Bronx power forward Jermaine Lawrence (15), Canadian point guard Tyler Ennis (20), Charlotte center Kennedy Meeks (34), Vermont Academy center Dominic Woodson (36), Bishop O'Connell power forward Junior Etu (88) and DeMatha shooting guard Jairus Lyles (100).

* MaxPreps.com has ranked Maryland's 2012 recruiting class No. 17 in the country.

Terrapin head coach Mark Turgeon made a big splash early by landing Cleare and Layman, then went quiet late with sleepers like Dodd and Mitchell. 

* Paul VI shooting guard Stanford Robinson, who reportedly had a Terps offer, committed this week to Indiana.

“My final three were Indiana, Villanova and Rutgers. When I was sitting down thinking about everything, I came out with Indiana being the right fit for me 100 percent.”

Robinson, who plays for Team Takeover, joins former TT coach and Towson assistant Kenny Johnson in Bloomington. Johnson was hired as an assistant by the Hoosiers last month.

* Former Maryland forward target Amile Jefferson committed Tuesday to Duke.

"Duke is a prestigious school, a school that's going to challenge me on and off the court. I'm excited about that challenge. It's something I wanted."
