Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

Here are a few notes on another slow week in Terps recruiting:

** ESPN HoopGurlz this week conducted a Q&A with Maryland women's point guard signee Lexie Brown.

If you had to compare your game to a current college or pro player’s, whose would it be? Kristi Toliver of the Los Angeles Sparks. Kristi is a point guard that sometimes has a scorer’s mentality. Her 3-ball is deadly. I think I shoot well, but my reputation is not even close to hers … yet. She also attended the University of Maryland, where she won a national championship, and I hope to follow her footsteps when I get on Maryland’s campus.

** Former Maryland target and DeMatha center Bee Jay Anya signed this week with North Carolina State.

Anya said the Pack’s improvement under [Mark] Gottfried, a the Sweet 16 appearance last season after a five-year absence from the NCAA tournament and a No. 6 ranking in the country to start this season, was one of the biggest reasons he chose N.C. State.

** Maryland landed a commitment last weekend from Virginia Beach defensive lineman Demetri McGill, according to the Virginian-Pilot.

McGill, 6-3 and 295 pounds, chose the Terrapins over Old Dominion, Cincinnati and East Carolina.

The Virginian-Pilot rated McGill the No. 3 prospect in South Hampton Roads because of his athleticism and explosiveness off the ball. He had offers from more than 12 schools.

** Maryland-bound quarterback Shane Cockerille guided Gilman last weekend to a 35-7 win over Calvert Hall in the MIAA A Conference championship game.

He finished his Gilman career with perhaps his best performance, rushing for 234 yards on 26 carries in the game.
