Jenkins Taking His Time

Colleague Steve Yanda has a terrific read today on Good Counsel All-Met linebacker Jelani Jenkins and how he has handled all of the attention that goes along with being one of the nation's top recruit.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the whole recruiting process: While the growing trend is for players to make their college choices earlier and earlier, Jenkins is in no rush to reach a decision.

I love Jelani Jenkins, but if I hear one more thing about his father's recruiting matrix I might have to stop going to games.

Virginia -- 27
Maryland -- 10

Maryland will finish with a 5-7 record.

I am happy that Maryland is no longer recruiting Tavon Austin.

Jelani Jenkins, Travis Hawkins and Isaac Holmes will be signing with the University of Florida.

Go Tar Heels !

Maryland Basketball goes down to another crushing defeat on the recruiting trail:

St. Frances small forward Terrell Vinson, a 2009 prospect who recently transferred from Montrose Christian, has made his college choice. According to this premium article from, Vinson committed to Loyola Marymount yesterday. He picked the West Coast Conference school over offers from Maryland, Georgetown and Villanova.

In a related story, "Gary" is being investigated by authorities for his peculiar stalking of Maryland Athletics.

Officials believe Gary's obsession either originates from the fact that he never graduated from high school or from his hatred of his current job as janitor at the Comcast Center where he won an award for being the 4th best(out of 5)toilet cleaner in 1999.
