In this week's recruiting roundup, Melo Trimble gives Maryland basketball fans 47 reasons to have hope for the future.

Football recruiting


-- An apparent issue with credits reportedly has delayed Class of 2014 offensive tackle signee Larry Mazyck's enrollment until the summer semsester.

-- Class of 2015 quarterback target Kai Locksley, son of Mike, visited Virginia Tech last weekend and Maryland this week. He reportedly also will visit Florida State in early March.

-- A batch of new offers to pro-style quarterbacks went out recently: to Nick Johns (D.C.), Brady White (Calif.), Josh Rosen (Calif.) and Zach Gentry (N.M.). All are considered four-star prospects or better.

-- Class of 2015 defensive line target Adam McLean, a recent Army All-American selection who was set to visit this weekend, reportedly will do so later.

Basketball recruiting

-- After a 27-point, 12-rebound, eight assist game in a 73-66 win Friday against nationally ranked Paul VI (Va.), Class of 2014 signee Melo Trimble scored a school-record 47 points, 21 of them free throws, in a 69-68 win Sunday.

-- Class of 2014 signee Dion Wiley went for 14 points in an 84-79 win Friday.

-- Class of 2014 signee Jared Nickens had 18 points in a 65-39 win as Westtown (Pa.) won its league title Tuesday. Said his coach: "Jared has grown from being a really talented shooter to a really complete player that helps you win games. A shooter can get you in and out of games; a complete player helps you win games. Jared's ball handling, passing, defense, rebounding, communication have all gotten to a point where he helps us win championships. … Without Jared, we don't win this championship."

-- Class of 2015 center target Georgios Papagiannis, a teammate of Nickens' at Westtown, had 16 points, 16 rebounds and nine blocked shots. "Serious recruiting interest" is coming from Maryland, La Salle, Pittsburgh and Temple. Papagiannis could also leave for his native Greece upon graduation, then enter the NBA draft after a year of professional basketball.
