Recruiting Insider: May 25, 2008 - May 31, 2008

Background Checks for Recruits

Great, and scary, piece here. A private investigator is soliciting colleges to do background checks on their recruits. More and more players seem to be getting in trouble before they step foot on campus, such as this would-be Washington State quarterback, cited 18 times and now looking for a new...

Spotlight on Arundel's Alec Lemon

The Post's B.J. Koubaroulis sits down with Arundel wide receiver Alec Lemon, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound junior who is aiming to show college recruiters that he is more than just a product of Arundel's pass-oriented offense. Lemon averaged 69.2 yards per game last season, with 969 yards and 13 touchdowns. Note:...

Recruits Feel Comfortable With Paterno's Status

I asked the obvious question of Gaithersburg All-Met lineman Sean Stanley and his coach, Kreg Kephart, yesterday. With so much made about a coach's job security these days, why would a recruit feel comfortable committing to Penn State given the circus surrounding not-quite-coach-for-life Joe Paterno. "Even if Coach Paterno does...

Lions Get One More, This Time From Oxon Hill

I heard about this one last night, but didn't get a chance to post. Penn State has landed yet another local player, Oxon Hill wide receiver Brandon Felder. Does anyone else think this is looking more and more like the recruiting class of three years ago?...

Penn State Lands Another All-Met

Chalk up one more for Penn State. Gaithersburg All-Met lineman Sean Stanley earlier this afternoon committed to play for the Nittany Lions. "He thought about Maryland," Gaithersburg Coach Kreg Kephart said. "I think he thought long and hard about Georgia, Stanford and Michigan. And Pitt. And Tennessee and Nebraska. Those...

Penn State Plucks Another Local

This time it's Eleanor Roosevelt cornerback Stephon Morris. He also had offers from Louisville and Rutgers, among others, Raiders Coach Tom Green said, but decided to join teammate Derrick Thomas and others planning to head to State College....

More on the Evans/Terps Saga

Where to start after the holiday weekend? Well, it broke on Friday afternoon, but the discussion about Tyree Evans and Maryland parting ways is still plenty hot. There had been rumors that all of Evans' criminal record had not surfaced; indeed, there was a plea to a handgun charge in...
