Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

Maryland point guard target Rysheed Jordan was at his best Wednesday night at Philadelphia's Wayne Ellington All-City Basketball Classic.

The five-star prospect -- and Rivals.com's No. 12 prospect in the 2013 class -- had 14 points and four assists to lead his White squad to a 110-98 win over the Blue team. Rivals.com's Alex Kline, who was on hand for the game, offered an update on Jordan's recruitment.

Jordan is being tracked by Maryland the hardest as of now and has visited the College Park campus twice. Alabama, Villanova, Temple, La Salle, Kansas, St. John's, Virginia, Arizona, Georgetown, NC State, Drexel and more are heavily involved for Jordan, who could make a college decision as early as July. If he holds out to the fall, look for the Terrapins to definitely receive an official visit from him.

Dodd, in particular, was way better than his unknown rep would seem to indicate. He passes the look test and seems like a high-major center in the lay-up line, but when the action starts and he hits the floor, he can play, too. There aren't many actual sleepers in this era of heavily recruited early identified high school prospects, but Dodd appears to have a chance to be one.

* In a basketball recruiting Q&A for MaxPreps.com, Jason Hickman writes that the Harrison twins could have an Anthony Davis-like impact on whichever school they end up at as freshmen.

Baylor, Kentucky and Maryland are viewed as the most serious contenders for the duo's services.

Football recruiting

* Maryland cornerback signee Sean Davis hopes to be a two-sport athlete in College Park, according to The Washington Post.

"Coach Edsall said that I could [play baseball] but as long as I stayed with my schoolwork and didn't fall behind because baseball misses [class] a lot, I can do it," Davis said.

* Terps coach Randy Edsall spoke to The Sun's Jeff Barker this week about incoming wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

"One of the things that stood out to me is he's got huge hands for a guy his size and catches the ball extremely well," the coach said. "The other thing is, he's a competitor."
