D.C. Skill Players Getting Offers

Colleague Alan Goldenbach files this dispatch:

More offers are pouring in for D.C. players, and the schools recruiting them are not all the usual suspects. While H.D. Woodson's 6-foot-4 senior wide receiver Alonzo Russell has some familiar suitors offering him (Pittsburgh and West Virginia), a trio of Coolidge senior skill-position players are attracting attention from afar.

Running back Avery Williams, who transferred from Eleanor Roosevelt prior to last season, has offers from West Virginia, Michigan State, Utah and Kansas. The latter two schools, as well as New Mexico have offered Colts wide receiver Joshua Ford. Martize Barr, who led the DCIAA in receptions last season, has picked up offers from Kansas and New Mexico, as well as Rutgers.

New Mexico signed two Coolidge players last year - quarterback Emmanuel Yeager and receiver Derrell Person - but both are no longer with the program. Yeager left school in May, while Person did not qualify academically and is now at Arizona Western Junior College.

Maryland basketball will finish with a 15-16 record

No NCAA bid

No NIT bid

Maryland Football 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 !
