Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

The postseason honors keep rolling in for Jake Layman.

The Maryland-bound small forward this week was named ESPNBoston.com's Mr. Basketball.


After a summer in which he saw his stock explode with the Boston Amateur Basketball Club, which included an AAU National Championship, Layman returned to King Philip and put in an even more dominant senior season. In 21 games he averaged 26.5 points, 16 rebounds, 5.8 blocks, 3.2 assists and three steals, as the Warriors set a new school record for wins (18) before suffering a surprise upset in the quarterfinal round of the Division 2 South tournament. He was also named the Hockomock League's Most Valuable Player for the second straight season.

* One day after committing to Seattle, Trey Dickerson, a senior point from Los Angeles who drew some Maryland interest, reportedly reopened his recruitment.

* Duane Wilson, a junior point guard from Milwaukee who reportedly received some Terps interest, will stay in his hometown for college.

Wilson chose Marquette over Memphis and Missouri. All three schools fit the up-tempo style he preferred.

* Maryland women's forward signee Tierney Pfirman was named the Williamsport (Pa.) Sun Gazette's girls basketball Player of the Year.

One of the greatest players in Lycoming County history, Pfirman ended her brilliant scholastic career in impressive fashion and is a lock to become a four-time all-state selection. Player of the Year for a fourth straight season, Pfirman averaged 27.7 points, 13 rebounds, 6.1 steals and 3.7 assists per game while hitting 56 percent of her shots.
