Young, Furman pledge at Crab Bowl
Recapping Monday night's Crab Bowl, won by the Washington team, 24-21, before a sparse, cold crowd at Towson's Johnny Unitas Stadium:
* Good Counsel All-Met defensive back Louis Young committed to Stanford. No surprise here, Young had committed to the Cardinal before deciding to look around, enjoying the attention of the recruiting process and finally going back to his first choice.
* Old Mill All-Met running back Josh Furman committed to MIchigan. Another non-surprise, though Furman did not play in the game as he recovers from a knee injury sustained in the Patriots' Maryland 4A championship victory over Wise.
* DeMatha defensive back Michael Coley committed to California. The big question is whether teammate Arie Kouandjio, an All-Met offensive lineman, will join him.
* Kennedy wide receiver-defensive back Bisi Ezekoye committed to Harvard.
* Former St. John's Catholic Prep defensive end J.R. Ferguson didn't suit up but was on the sidelines and gave a lengthy list of his suitors, including Maryland. He has taken three officials visits with two more scheduled for late January and will announce on Feb. 3, the first day of the NLI signing period.
* As for the game, I can't believe that Damascus running back Brian Lucas's 65-yard touchdown run is nowhere to be found on YouTube. Later, he leaped over a tackler, though I'm told that's actually a 15-yard penalty in high school football -- apparently it is legal in the DCIAA Turkey Bowl though.
* Never seen anything like All-Met Offensive Player of the Year Billy Cosh's performance. The Arundel senior, bound for Kansas State, completed 31 of 55 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions. Yes, the Baltimore team did have two other quarterbacks on its roster. Yes, it ran no-huddle. Yes, it looked like an Arundel football game, with play-calling relying on the pass instead of running all-world Linganore fullback Zach Zwinak in short-yardage situations.
