Montrose Trio Getting Plenty of Looks
I saw Maryland assistant Keith Booth on Friday night at Montrose Christian. Booth, who I covered during his final seasons as a Terrapin player, was pulling double duty: Maryland has signed two Montrose seniors, guard Adrian Bowie and center Shane Walker, leaving the main attraction for college recruiters a trip of talented sophomores. The Terrapins - and many other schools - have offered all three of those players: forwards Terrell Vinson, Tristan Spurlock and Isaiah Armwood.
Plenty of big performances over the weekend, including this one from O'Connell junior center Frank Ben-Eze, a 6-foot-10 junior from Nigeria: He had 16 points, 21 rebounds and 6 blocks in a 68-56 victory over Paul VI yesterday. With Ben-Eze playing well, playing time continues to be limited for 7-foot senior Zack Crimmins. Crimmins, who is averaging 3.4 points per game, certainly could use as many minutes as possible to help his development.
Also, guard Corey Allmond, a second-team All-Met last season at Gwynn Park, is averaging a team-leading 15.6 points per game for undefeated Howard College in Texas. Allmond, who failed to meet the NCAA's minimum eligbility standards for a scholarship, will play two years for the Hawks before moving onto a four-year school.
