Orioles-Blue Jays games in Toronto no longer your typical slugfests

Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

The Baltimore Sun

In this week's roundup, we offer one final update, hopefully, on Jalen Tabor.

Football recruiting

-- Speaking of which: Tabor committed to Arizona on Thursday, capping a long, strange recruitment for the Class of 2014 defensive back target.

-- Class of 2014 athlete commit Will Ulmer was working out as a wide receiver at the Under Armour All-America High School Football game this week.

-- Class of 2014 defensive end commit Jesse Aniebonam has picked up his play at the US Army All-American Bowl practices. The game is to be played at 1 p.m. Saturday on NBC.

Basketball recruiting

-- Class of 2014 guard commit Melo Trimble had 17 points in a 55-52 win Monday.

-- Class of 2014 guard commit Dion Wiley is dealing with a lingering foot injury.

-- Class of 2014 center commit Trayvon Reed had 16 points, seven rebounds and seven blocks in a 75-40 win last Friday. Reed is "improving every game offensively," his coach said.

-- Class of 2014 wing commit Jared Nickens had 20 points in a 68-61, triple-overtime win last week. Nickens "displayed a nice combination of athleticism and shooting ability. Nickens moves well coming off screens and is more comfortable in a catch-and-shoot situation than putting it on the deck." A couple of days later, he had 27 points in a 64-61 win, stating his case for "the best offensive player in the area and quite the highlight reel type of player."

For highlights of Nickens' 20-point outing, look below. Nickens, No. 11 in brown, has a rim-rattling dunk at the 3:20 mark. Also worth watching is teammate and center Georgios Papagiannis (No. 12), a Class of 2015 prospect and early Terps target.
