Maryland's 2010 recruiting class might not be complete just yet.

The Terps have made contact with Huntington (W.Va.) Prep coach Rob Fulford regarding 6-foot-10, 210-pound power forward Gorgui Dieng, according to Rivals.com.

Memphis, Maryland, Colorado and Marquette are on the short list for potential visits once Dieng gets his SAT score according to Huntington Prep head coach Rob Fulford.

As it stands, though, those schools will be playing catch up with Louisville and Marshall for the 6-foot-10, 210-pound post player.

Testudo Times this week took a look at other big men still on the market that could draw Maryland interest.• The high school career of Maryland women's small forward signee Alyssa Thomas came to an end Tuesday. Thomas' Central Dauphin squad suffered a 58-40 loss to Mt. Lebanon in the semifinals of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Class AAAA tournament.

Thomas, who averages nearly 25 a game, struggled to get the ball in the hole as well when she did find a rare opening — uncharacteristically missing several layups. In her final high school game, Thomas finished with 10 points and 11 boards.

• Penn Wood, led by potential Maryland small forward target Aaron Brown, will meet Plymouth Whitemarsh this weekend for the PIAA Class AAAA title.

Oakman played only 2 minutes, 51 seconds in the first half of the district championship before being saddled to the bench with two quick fouls. Aaron Brown carried much of the load for the Pats, scoring a team-high 20 points.

• Progressive Christian Academy power forward Moses Abraham, who drew some Maryland interest, has committed to Georgetown.

Abraham made a two-day official visit to Indiana earlier this week, after which Joe Boncore, Abraham's adviser, had what he called "a long talk" with Georgetown Coach John Thompson III and former Georgetown Coach John Thompson II.

Football recruiting

• Maryland was the first school to offer Powder Springs, Ga., linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days, according to Rivals.com.

"I really do not know much about Maryland to be honest," he said. "They sent me two letters before today's news. The coach I spoke to today told me it was a great program with high academics that sends highly rated players to the NFL. I plan to research the academics more now that they have offered."

• The Terps are one of many programs in the running for David Simon, an offensive tackle from Bay Minette, Ala.

"Maryland was actually my first offer," he said. "I got that a couple weeks ago or a month. Your first offer gets your blood pumping a bit. Later I got Mississippi State and Vandy. I've been in contact with Vandy for a while now. Actually, Vanderbilt's been recruiting me probably the longest. It's really gratifying to get these offers in. It makes you feel more accomplished about yourself."

• GoGamecocks.com has updates on several 2011 prospects with Maryland offers, including Glen Allen, Va., linebacker Curtis Grant.
