Weekend Wrap: Notes on Yannick Ngakoue's decommitment, Harrison twins' visit plans

September 24, 2012|By Matt Bracken | The Baltimore Sun

The Maryland  football program has reportedly lost one of its top recruits.

Rivals.com reported Sunday that Yannick Ngakoue, a four-star linebacker from Friendship Collegiate (D.C.) and the No. 136 player in the 2013 class, has backed out of his Terps pledge.

Ngakoue now lists Maryland along with Miami, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia as schools he's considering.

** Derwin Gray, a Friendship Collegiate offensive lineman and Maryland's highest-ranked commitment, told Rivals.com's Mike Farrell that he'll stick with his Terps pledge but make other visits.

** UM running back recruit DeAndre' Lane rushed for touchdown runs of 2 and 23 yards, and intercepted a pass in Catonsville's 35-30 loss to Franklin.

Basketball recruiting

** Scout.com reported Sunday that the Harrison twins would visit Kentucky for Big Blue Madness. But Aaron Harrison Sr. told KentuckySports.com that their family hasn't made a decision on upcoming visits. On Saturday, Adam Zagoria, citing an anonymous source, reported that the twins are leaning toward Kentucky and the father is pushing Maryland. But InsideMDSports.com later spoke to Harrison Sr., who refuted the report.
