Weekly Maryland recruiting roundup

April 05, 2013|By Matt Bracken | The Baltimore Sun

After leading Potomac to a runner-up finish in the Class 3A playoffs, Maryland shooting guard target Dion Wiley is ready to hit the AAU circuit once again.

The Washington Post this week checked in on the four-star prospect, who splits his time in the spring and summer with Team Takeover and the Maryland Ruff Riders.

Wiley hasn’t added any new offers since Connecticut joined the chase in January, but that could change as the AAU season heats up. The other schools that have offered are Maryland, Georgetown, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Rutgers, North Carolina State, Villanova, Cincinnati and Miami.

** DMVElite.com named Maryland combo guard commitment Melo Trimble its Northern Virginia Player of the Year.

Trimble averaged 20.3 points per game, but seemed to save his best performances for the most important contests, dropping 33 in the Knights’ Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title game victory against St. John’s and 34 against Benedictine to win the Alhambra Catholic Schools Invitational Tournament.

** Trimble and Wiley were both named to the Washington Post's All-Met first team.

** Adam Zagoria reported this week that Terps shooting guard target Rashad Vaughn is close to trimming his list to seven or eight schools soon.

Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina, Iowa State, Florida, Minnesota, Texas, Maryland, Baylor, Tennessee and Georgetown are among the schools recruiting Vaughn hard.

** Maryland women's commitment Shatori Walker-Kimbrough was named Player of the Year by the Elwood City (Pa.) Ledger.

“There were some disappointments, we had some tough losses,” said Walker-Kimbrough, who averaged 28.3 points, 10.1 rebounds and 6.8 steals per game. “But overall, I was just happy to be part of that team. We grew closer throughout the season. Overall, it was a good year.”
