Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

The Baltimore Sun

Maryland's list of offered prospects in the class of 2013 expanded this week when a scholarship reportedly went out to a Top 50 prospect from Canada.

Xavier Rathan-Mayes, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound shooting guard from Toronto, is the latest recipient of a Terps offer, according to InsideMDSports. Rivals.com's No. 48 player in the 2013 class also claims offers from Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Marquette, Memphis, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina State, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, USC, Virginia and Washington, according to Rivals.

Check out video of Rathan-Mayes, who goes to school at Huntington (W.Va.) Prep and plays AAU for Canada's CIA Bounce, below.

** The Memphis Commerical Appeal updated the recruitment this week of Terps point guard target Roddy Peters.

The 6-4, 180-pound guard listed Memphis, Maryland, Georgetown, UConn, UCLA and others Tuesday afternoon as schools he is considering.

** The Harrison twins helped the Houston Defenders to a win over Boo Williams in the AAU national championships in Orlando on Wednesday.

In Wednesday’s win by their AAU squad — the Houston Defenders beat Boo Williams All-Stars out of Virginia 73-54 on ESPNU — the twins were extremely active against a team that also featured several big-time Division I recruits. Aaron clearly was more productive Wednesday, but Andrew said he was limited by a sore back.

** NBC Sports' College Basketball Talk named Terps point guard target Rysheed Jordan the standout performer Thursday at the Live in AC Tournament in Atlantic City, N.J.

Jordan was matched up with another Philadelphia talent, Rondae Jefferson of Team Final, for much of the game Wednesday night and Jordon, who played like he had something to prove, dropped 22 points. 

** Joel Berry, a 2014 point guard from Apopka, Fla., recently landed a Terps offer, according to The Recruit Scoop.

** Clarksburg linebacker Stefan Houston, who signed with the Terps in February, will spend the 2012 season at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia, according to the Washington Post.

Houston — 6-foot-2, 192-pound linebacker-wide receiver — orally committed to Maryland in September and signed a national letter of intent to the ACC school in February. Instead, the second-team All-Met pick will head to the central Virginia boarding school before enrolling at Maryland, likely following a similar path to the three players on the current roster who spent time at Fork Union — sophomore linebacker L.A. Goree (C.H. Flowers), redshirt freshman offensive lineman Nate Clarke (Carroll) and freshman wide receiver Tyrek Cheeseboro.
