With the Harrison twins off the board to Kentucky, Maryland's attention will inevitably turn to two other highly touted guard prospects with Terps offers.
Suitland point guard Roddy Peters was featured this week in ESPN The Mag's special D.C. issue. ESPN.com's No. 43 prospect in the country, Peters is considering offers from Maryland, Georgetown, UCLA, Kansas, Rutgers and Xavier.
The schools need not worry; Peters is still weighing his options. He has an upcoming trip to Westwood [this weekend] and was impressed by his official visits to Xavier and Rutgers. Kansas recently joined the party as well. Meanwhile, everyone has an opinion on what Peters should do. "People would come to games and be looking for clues," he says. "Like if I wore Under Armour socks, they'd think I was going to Maryland."
Along with Jordan, Maryland remains in the mix for point guard Roddy Peters. The 6-foot-4 Peters hails from District Heights, Md., just outside of Washington. According to ESPN, he is the eighth-ranked point guard in the senior class. Jordan comes in eight spots behind at 16.
[Jordan's AAU coach Kamal] Yard wasn't sure what direction the Terrapins would go, but said he wouldn't be surprised if they landed Peters.
** The Minneapolis Star-Tribune this week had an update on five-star prospect and 2014 Terps wing target Rashad Vaughn.
Vaughn said there are about 10 coaches that make up the circle that call/text him most frequently. Among those are Minnesota, Baylor, Iowa State, Kentucky, Maryland and Syracuse.
Graham is currently listed as the No. 91 player in the Class of 2012 by ESPN.com. When he originally committed to N.C. State last May, he was ranked the No. 45 player in his class, and he had moved up to No. 38 by the time he briefly committed again in December.
The 6-2 Tate was offered a scholarship by Illini coach John Groce while making an official visit on Thursday. Tate is ranked the 54th-best point guard in the Class of 2013 by ESPN.
"I got a good vibe from the coaching staff," Tate said. "It feels like home. I feel comfortable there on and off the court."Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
