Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

May 11, 2012|By Matt Bracken | The Baltimore Sun

Many of Maryland's top 2013 targets are guards, but the Terps have identified several post players as top priorities as well.

According to the New York Post, Jermaine Lawrence of Queens, N.Y., is one of those Terps targets. The 6-foot-10 forward claims offers from Baylor, Cincinnati, Florida, Kansas, Louisville, Maryland, Rutgers, St. John's, Syracuse, Temple and UNLV, according to the Post. Lawrence won MVP honors last weekend at the Mary Kline Classic.

"He's a special talent and when it's all said and done with hard work he could be arguably one of the best players in his class," one Division I coach familiar with Lawrence said. Another coach described him as someone capable of playing either forward position with "great upside."

* NorthstarBBall.com updated the recruitment of Paul VI (Va.) guard Stanford Robinson.

Robinson listed scholarship offers from Indiana, Villanova, North Carolina State, Marquette, Rutgers, Maryland, Seton Hall, Virginia, George Washington, and Miami. In addition, he is receiving interest from Texas. At this point, he has no favorites in his recruitment.

* St. Benedict's (N.J.) point guard Tyler Ennis, who was reportedly offered by Maryland, updated CBSSports.com this week with his top seven.

Wherever he winds up in the rankings won't affect his college destination. Ennis already has his choice of suitors: Illinois, Syracuse, Memphis, Louisville, Baylor, Wake Forest and UCLA. Others have shown interest, but those are the seven standing out right now.
