Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

With the 2012 NBA Draft in the books, CBSSports.com this week predicted future lottery picks who have yet to play a college game.

On his list of 14, Jeff Borzello identified two Maryland targets -- Andrew Harrison (No. 4) and Aaron Harrison (No. 13).


The brother of Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison is a stud player in his own right. He's more of a scorer than Andrew, but he has shown the ability to handle the ball. When his shot is falling, he can carry a team.

SI.com's Frank Burlison, meanwhile, wrote this week that the Harrison twins are two of the top five players in the 2013 class. He offered up his impressions of the Terps targets.

My most recent in-person viewing of Andrew Harrison came during the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville, Va. I can't be as definitive in declaring him the "best point guard prospect in the class" as I can be in putting the "best overall prospect" tag on [Julius] Randle.

Harrison's twin, Aaron, is heading for the same college program -- Kentucky and Maryland seem to be the hot names -- and he is considered among the best "shooting guard-types" in the class. But a sore knee sidelined him for the last few days of the NBA camp and he had struggled with his jumper beforehand.

* NBE Basketball Report this week updated the recruitment of Suitland senior point guard Roddy Peters.

His recruitment is definitely taking off, with Peters listing the likes of "Virginia, Virginia Tech, Xavier, St. Joe's, Cincinnati and UMass" having tendered scholarship offers. Schools such as Georgetown, Texas, Clemson, Maryland and Tennessee have shown and are showing interest.  

* Mount St. Joseph junior guard Phil Booth stopped in for an unofficial trip to College Park this week. The Gaels star has offers from Maryland, Xavier, St. Joseph's, Seton Hall, South Florida, Indiana, Georgetown, Rutgers and Villanova.

* Northstar Basketball Blog had a brief update this week on the recruiting picture of D.C. Assault power forward Junior Etou.

While at NBPA Top 100 Camp, Etou listed scholarship offers from Memphis and Miami to go along with interest from Maryland, West Virginia and Arizona.

* Dominic Woodson, a four-star power forward in the 2013 class who was hearing from the Terps, gave CBSSports.com a Maryland-less update on his recruitment.

For now, Woodson is hearing from Oklahoma, Baylor, TCU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Cincinnati, Memphis, Louisville, North Carolina State and Rhode Island. He has taken trips to Baylor and Texas A&M, and liked what he saw at both places.
