Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

The Baltimore Sun

Fresh off a visit to Oregon State, 2014 small forward Jared Nickens is prepping for a trip to Maryland.

Nickens, a 6-foot-6 three-star prospect from the Westtown School in Pennsylvania, spoke to The Washington Post's Alex Prewitt this week about his impending June 14 visit to College Park.

“Just looking, hopefully I enjoy myself, see if it’s a good fit for me,” Nickens said. “I speak to Coach Turgeon often, and we talk about how I fit in and how he interacts with his players and stuff like that. I’m pretty sure I’ll learn more.”

** Gonzaga (D.C.) guard and 2015 Maryland target Bryant Crawford is competing for a spot on the FIBA Americas U-16 roster.

Making the final roster would culminate a journey that began back in October for Crawford, two months before he had even played his first high school game. Through two minicamps, the pool of players has been whittled down, with Crawford showcasing skills that continue to bud following a solid sophomore campaign and intense offseason workouts.

** Abdul-Mailk Abu, a 2014 forward with a Maryland offer, recently revealed a short list of Connecticut, Florida, Iowa State, Kansas State, North Carolina State and Providence.
