Recruiting Insider: June 8, 2008 - June 14, 2008

Looking Out for No. 1

I'm not going to name names. But in the past few weeks, more than one local private school coach has inquired about quarterback Raymond Cotton, an Auburn recruit who reportedly is transferring to Meade for his senior year. It appears Cotton is still headed for Meade, but it certainly is...

The 'Rocket' Is Set for Liftoff

De'Antwan Williams, a 5-foot-8, 200-pound running back at Woodbridge High, is nicknamed "Rocket." He rushed for 2,048 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior last fall, his third consecutive 1,000-yard season.

It could happen. That was one of the tidbits passed along this morning by DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor. Quarterback Tom Chroniger is scheduled to attend a one-day camp at Pittsburgh this weekend and could choose the Panthers if they offer a scholarship. Chroniger presently holds offers from three Mid-American Conference...

More On Clarke/Ohio State

Caught up with Tuscarora Coach Shawn Carey earlier this week to discuss cornerback Dominic Clarke's commitment to Ohio State last weekend. Carey said that Clarke also had offers from Maryland, Virginia, Stanford, Duke, Vanderbilt, Boston College and Richmond. If that list makes it sound like Clarke is a good student,...

Gilchrist to USF? WVU Seems More Likely

They're all atwitter in Tampa Bay that Gus Gilchrist might enroll at South Florida. Other possible destinations reportedly include Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia. The guess here is that Morgantown winds up being the place where Gilchrist finally takes the floor. Consider that Bob Huggins hired Dalonte Hill at Kansas...

Where Can the Terps Find Players?

I'm surprised it took this long for someone to follow up on Gary Williams' comment that the Terps are not done recruiting for next season. Matter-of-factly, there aren't any players on the market for next season. Certainly no one who can take the expected role of Gus Gilchrist or Tyree...

Shocking News! Recruit Backs Out on Pre-High School Commitment

Can't say I spent much time looking at this one, but I was shocked to read that a player who committed to DePaul before entering high school now says he will not follow through with the commitment and wants to look elsewhere. Shocked, I tell you, that this sort of...
