Sabelhaus to visit Fla. Terps in hunt

November 11, 1994|By Paul McMullen | Paul McMullen,Sun Staff Writer

Bobby Sabelhaus won't make an official visit to Maryland, but the McDonogh quarterback hasn't ruled out playing for the Terps.

Sabelhaus, who holds several state career passing records and is considered the area's best quarterback prospect in two decades, will visit Florida this weekend for the Gators' Southeastern Conference game against South Carolina. He made an official visit to Florida State two weeks ago, and saw the Seminoles rout Duke.

Sabelhaus also plans to visit Duke and Boston College, and his fifth and final recruiting trip will be to either Michigan or Stanford. He has made several unofficial visits to Maryland.

"It doesn't pay to have an official visit there [Maryland]," said Sabelhaus' father, Bobby Sr., "because it's so easy to go there on an unofficial visit. Maryland's still in the picture. He likes Coach [Mark] Duffner a lot."

Sabelhaus would like to make a decision by the first week in January, a month before the football letter of intent signing period begins.

With only three scholarship quarterbacks, Maryland recruiters are emphasizing the position. The Terps are also in the running for Jeff Dover of Grand Prairie, Texas, and Ken Mastrole of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
