Two Maryland commitments have cracked the ESPNU 100 for the class of 2010.

The list, which was updated Thursday, includes Miller School (Va.) small forward Mychal Parker at No. 44 and Tucson (Ariz.) Santa Rita point guard Terrell Stoglin at No. 98. Former Maryland pledge Terrence Ross checked in at No. 26 on ESPN's list.

The reopening of Ross' recruitment caused UM to fall out of Rivals.com's team recruiting rankings.

Maryland's addition of three-star guard Pe'Shon Howard was not enough to compensate for the loss of top-50 prospect Terrence Ross, so the Terrapins fell out of the top 25.• Stoglin had a huge game Tuesday in Santa Rita's 90-76 loss to Amphi.

Santa Rita point guard Terrell Stoglin was his usual dominant self in the opening half, scoring 21 points over the first two quarters - including a dazzling 360-degree layup around the six-minute mark of the second quarter. He finished with a game-high 30 points for Santa Rita (13-5, 5-2).

• UM combo guard commitment Pe'Shon Howard helped Oak Hill (Va.) to an 87-65 win over Dudley (N.C.) on Monday.

Roscoe Smith and Pe'Shon Howard led Oak Hill with 20 and 15 points respectively.

• Late last week Rivals.com's Jerry Meyer fielded a mailbag question about the likelihood of Ross, the Montrose Christian shooting guard, ending up at Maryland.

Ross, the No. 43 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, has decommitted from Maryland. I would place the odds at "slim to none" that he would return to the Terrapin fold.

• MaxPreps.com's Pat Stevens took a look this week at the top uncommitted recruits of the 2010 class. His list of prospects included Terps power forward target C.J. Leslie.

State runner-up as a junior alongside 2009 All-American and Kentucky freshman phenom John Wall. Co-MVP of August's Elite 24 Classic. Attended NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp and Nike LeBron James Skills Academy. Inside-out presence is a one-time North Carolina State commit as an underclassman.

• DeMatha juniors and Maryland targets Quinn Cook and Mikael Hopkins gave NBE Basketball Report updated recruiting lists at the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass..

Hopkins, who is quickly developing into one of the top big men in his class, has offers from Kansas, Syracuse, Georgetown, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Maryland, Villanova, Miami (Fl.), Clemson, Florida and Florida State. He added that his favorites right now are Syracuse, Kansas and Miami (Fl.).

• UM junior point guard target Sterling Gibbs had another big week for Seton Hall Prep (N.J.).

The steady junior guard, last week's Player to Watch, pumped in 32 points yesterday to power an 84-40 decision over Weequahic and reach exactly 1,000 career points. He joins his brother Ashton, a guard at Pitt, on the elite list.

• Terps junior forward target Desmond Hubert was two blocks away from a double-double Wednesday night.

Desmond Hubert blocked eight shots to go with a game-high 17 points, and Mark Pryzbylkowski knocked down three three-point shots in scoring 14 to lead New Egypt to a 46-34 win at Moorestown Friends. Drew Haines (14 points) made three treys for the Foxes.

Football recruiting

• ESPN.com's Craig Haubert thinks Wilson Area (Pa.) High quarterback Tyler Smith is the top prospect in Maryland's 2010 class.

A huge get for Maryland was quarterback Tyler Smith (Easton, Pa./Wilson Area), who is the No. 8-ranked quarterback. He has a good frame, which he needs to keep developing, as well as a rocket arm and deceptively good athleticism. His delivery is compact and very quick. Plus, he is a good ball handler. Smith has a lot of ability and upside and could become the face of this offense over the next few seasons.

• Maryland is one of several programs still in the hunt to land Archbishop Carroll (D.C.) linebacker-defensive end Jeremiah Attaochu, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

One of Georgia Tech's main recruiting targets will be on The Flats for an official visit this weekend. Jeremiah Attaochu is a 6-3, 225-pound linebacker from the Washington, D.C., area who was coveted by new defensive coordinator Al Groh when he was at Virginia. The three-star prospect from Archbishop Carroll is still considering several other schools, including Kansas State, which he visited last weekend, and Maryland and Illinois, which he visited last month.

• Scout.com reported Thursday that Bishop McNamara wide receiver Brandon Coleman has a clear leader in his recruitment.

The Scarlet Knights now lead solidly for wide receiver Brandon Coleman over Syracuse and Maryland. "It's just a comfort level I have with Rutgers," Coleman said. "I like everything about them."
