College football: Four-star junior quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., the Terps' top target in the Class of 2016, is set to announce his commitment Friday. Haskins will choose from among Maryland, Rutgers, Penn State, Alabama, Virginia Tech, Florida and Notre Dame at 3 p.m. at Bullis. The Terps and Scarlet Knights are considered the front-runners, with Maryland the favorite, according to 247Sports.com's "Crystal Ball" predictions, and Rutgers having received Haskins' past two unofficial visits. Rated the No. 26 overall prospect in the nation and the third-best pro-style quarterback by 247Sports.com, the 6-foot-3, 198-pound Haskins is seen as the lynchpin of "#TheMovement," a push by Maryland coaches and recruits alike to lure the state's top recruits to College Park.

Eight local players named UA girls lax All-Americans

Eight local girls players, including two each from No. 1 McDonogh and No. 8 Mount Hebron, have been named Under Armour All-Americans, and six of them will play in the 10th annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Game on July 3 at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium. McDonogh's Elizabeth George and Olivia Jenner, Mount Hebron's Megan Doherty and Jen Giles, John Carroll's Kara Klages and St. Paul's Julia Braig were named in the first three waves of seniors announced for the game. One more group will be announced in the next few weeks, bringing the total to 44 All-Americans who will be divided into North and South teams. Roland Park's Francesca Whitehurst and Maryvale's Miranda Ibello were named Under Armour All-Americans, but they are both on the U.S. Under-19 national team that will play for the world championship this summer in Scotland and US Lacrosse rules prohibit their participation in All-America games. All the seniors on the U-19 team were named All-Americans.
