Pitt, WVU Offer Local Juniors

Colleague Paul Tenorio has today's news:

Broad Run junior running back T.J. Peeler picked up his first scholarship offer from the University of Pittsburgh after attending Pitt's Junior Day.

Peeler, a 6-foot, 175-pound versatile back, rushed for 1,145 yards and scored 18 touchdowns despite playing in just 11 games -- he missed three due to a small bone chip in his elbow -- helped lead the Spartans to a perfect 14-0 season and the Virginia AA Division 4 state championship, the school's first ever football title. Under the radar until the Spartans started to make their playoff push, Peeler has also drawn interest from Maryland and several other D-I programs.

"The coaches were all nice and I just felt really comfortable there," Peeler said. "They were showing me around the whole city, the school, facilities, everything was nice. I talked to Coach Dave Wannstedt and he was telling me he was really interested in me and liked my tape and I don't know, I just felt really comfortable."

Loudoun County linebacker-tight end Chase Williams, picked up his second scholarship offer Thursday from West Virginia University, according to his brother Blake Williams.

Williams, son of former Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, already had an offer from New Mexico State and has also drawn major interest from Maryland and Virginia Tech. Williams will also visit South Carolina this weekend, and the 6-foot-2, 235-pound athlete has drawn interest from several of the nation's top programs, including Florida and Southern Cal, and Tennessee, LSU and Alabama have recently also picked up their recruiting recently.

Now, here's a result that ALL Maryland fans AND millions of ABC viewers LOVED:

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND TERRAPINS 88
the university of north carolina tarheels 85

Not only did it bolster their post-season hopes, this win brought Maryland basketball back to the national spotlight. This is the type of win that coaches, players, parents, applicants, and *recruits* will remember for years to come!

Why would a recruit come play for Gary Williams? Gary Williams is a successful coach and mentor who knows how to get the most out of his student-athletes. Does he lose players from time to time? Sure. Not every student-athlete is cut out for the rigors of this University and its basketball program. Is he struggling with recruiting? Perhaps, but remember he has groomed many assistant coaches who have left to become head coaches at other D1 programs. This might be a down year, but Gary and his crew always find the right players to make his teams competitive. They never lack heart--and always come up with a few big wins!

Why would a parent send their child to Maryland? Once a safety school, the University of Maryland is now among top national universities. (The average SAT of incoming students this past year was approximately 1200.) It boasts many nationally ranked academic programs, including top notch business, engineering, and communications schools. Simply put, parents see the value in sending their children to a strong school with the faculty, programs and facilities to accommodate the diverse interests of their children.

GO RED, GO WHITE, GO BLACK, GO GOLD...GO TERPS GO!
