Cook Holding Court, DeMatha Seniors Mull Offers

Caught up with DeMatha basketball coach Mike Jones as he drove home from Chris Paul's CP3 Elite Guard Camp in Winston-Salem, N.C., where Jones noted the Washington area was well represented. DeMatha junior Quinn Cook, O'Connell senior Kendall Marshall (North Carolina), Georgetown Prep senior Markel Starks (Georgetown) and Gonzaga All-Met senior Tyler Thornton (Duke) were in attendance along with Jones and Gonzaga Coach Steve Turner.

While those three seniors long ago made their college choices, Jones said Cook is far from reaching his decision.

"It's all over the place," Jones said. "There's Wake Forest, Ohio State I talked to last night, and Duke wants him to come down for their elite camp this weekend, but I don't think he's going to make it. Virginia, Notre Dame Georgetown. He's got quite a few. Villanova, too."

As for DeMatha's seniors, forward Victor Oladipo will visit Indiana on Sept. 3-4 and will hit Notre Dame in mid-October for the Fighting Irish football game against Southern Cal. Forward Jerian Grant is going to Notre Dame on Sept. 5, with Virginia the following weekend, and DePaul and Providence are also on the schedule. Guard Justin Black has offers from Morgan State and North Carolina A&T.

I love it !

All of the DeMatha basketball players - have no interest in Maryland

Maryland basketball will finish with a 15-16 record

No NCAA bid

No NIT bid

Maryland will finish with a 2-10 record.

Maryland's defensive line and linebacker corps are a joke --- no pass rush whatsoever and give up a ton of long yardage plays.

I have seen harder hitting teams in powder puff leagues.

The only hard hits the Terps make - are out of bound plays - which cost them an additional 15 yards - which are quite frequent.

California's running back - Best - will gain 296 yards in the opening game

I love it, when Maryland constantly gets embarrassed on national TV.


California -- 56
Maryland -- 10

It's hilarious to see Maryland win a game - and the very next week get clobbered by a Virginia Tech - Boston College.

It is great to see Maryland go down to a crushing defeat on the football recruiting front (the kids they have received commitments from - are a joke! - taking the bottom of the barrel)

Carolina Blue - Carolina WHITE - Go Tar Heels - Let's go Tar Heels !

hclark1 gets his kicks from running down 17 year old kids. No respectable Tar Heel would embrace his moronic comments on high school student athletes.

Actually Quinn Cook is being recruited by Maryland (Keith Booth) and they are on his long list of potential choices.

And that could have something to do with how Maryland has had their 2010 PG for months

So sorry for the late response..SOME of us have real JOBS hclark1...

Why dont you read up on OUR DM ALUM Mr. Kenny Tate..with his "Freakish combination of size, speed and athleticism.." Unfortunately, Mr. Tate won't be able to exemplify his skills on your mediocre excuse of a football team that you appertain to! Oh, if he stays healthy, HE WILL BE A FIRST ROUND PICK!!!

We BEAT CAL last year and HELD J. Best to 25 yds on 10 carries and no TDs...
