U-Va Nets Four; Busy Times at Friendly High
Virginia picked up four commitments this past Saturday, including two local players: DeMatha WR Rodney McLeod and Friendly S Devin Wallace.
Wallace, who is 5-11 and 200 pounds, also had offers from Georgia, Virginia Tech and North Carolina. He was set to visit Maryland's one-day camp on Wednesday - where Friendly assistant coach Marcus Berry expected Wallace would get an offer from the Terps - but decided there was no reason to go.
"You know how Maryland is, they like guys to come to camp to get an offer," Berry said. "Virginia offered him last year around the time of our state championship game. He's so solid [with Virginia] that he doesn't even want to go to any more camps."
Berry said that Friendly RB Josh Haden - younger brother of last year's All-Met Offensive Player of the Year, Joe Haden - could make a decision soon. Josh Haden has narrowed his choices to his brother's school, Florida, and Boston College.
"There's a real good shot he's going to go to Boston College," Berry said. "He's really hit it off with the head coach and offensive coordinator there. They were up there all day Saturday and I asked him on a scale of 1 to 10, how much he liked it. He said, 'Coach, it's about a 12.' "
Friendly RB Lamaar Thomas, who holds roughly 35 scholarship offers has yet to narrow his selections, though Berry sees a top seven emerging: Maryland, Illinois, Tennessee, Ohio State, North Carolina, Florida and Boston College.
