Weekend Wrap: Terps lose out on point guard target Devon Hall

Devon Hall was one of Maryland's prime point guard targets in the 2014 class -- before the weekend.

On Sunday, the 6-foot-4 prospect from Cape Henry Collegiate School in Virginia Beach announced his intention to reclassify to 2013 and commit to Virginia. Hall, who spoke to the Daily Press about his decision, chose the Cavaliers overGeorgia, Florida, Maryland, Miami, Memphis, Iowa, Oregon State, Virginia Tech and Winthrop.


"My family being so comfortable with the decision and the opportunity I have to come in and work my hardest to make an impact right away were the two biggest reasons," said Hall regarding why he chose U.Va. "Also, you're not going to find a better academic school than U.Va. That was important to me."

* The Recruit Scoop's Alex Kline recapped the WE-R1 Summer Classic in Delaware, delivering notes on several Terps targets, including Obi Enechionyia, Phil Booth and Dion Wiley.

As he has only visited local schools in Maryland and Georgetown, Wiley is planning to visit Miami and Rutgers in August. While it is still early in the recruitment of the Potomac star, he says that Maryland is standing out the most to him right now.

* Maryland junior point guard target Kaleb Joseph fared well over the weekend at the New England Elite 75.

Joseph said that Tennessee, Maryland, Boston College, UConn, Pittsburgh, Kansas State and Providence are among those most active in his recruitment.

* The Terps women's program landed a commitment Saturday from Hopewell (Pa.) High guard/forward Shatori Walker-Kimbrough.

Walker-Kimbrough chose Maryland -- a perennial power that advanced to the Elite Eight last season -- over a dozen other scholarship offers. She also was considering Purdue and Duquesne. She made an unofficial visit to Maryland this past weekend and committed on her return home.

Football recruiting

* Elvis Dennah, a safety from Annapolis Area Christian, has committed to the Terps, according to InsideMDSports. Check back with Recruiting Report later for more on Dennah's pledge.

* Deon Long, a wide receiver from Iowa Western Community College, committed last week to Maryland. The D.C. native also spent time at West Virginia and New Mexico. He'll join the Terps for the 2013 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
