Big AAU weekend for several Terps targets

April 22, 2013|By Matt Bracken | The Baltimore Sun

There were several notable performances from Maryland basketball recruiting targets during the first major weekend of the spring AAU season. posted a free story on three Terps targets from Team Takeover who played at Nike's first EYBL session in Los Angeles: Obi Enechionyia, Dion Wiley and Martin Geben, the reigning Baltimore Catholic League Player of the Year from St. Maria Goretti

On which schools are showing [Geben the] most interest right now …

“The most recent offers are from Xavier, Dayton and Temple, and I’m getting interest from UVA, Notre Dame, Maryland. Georgetown a little bit.”

Wiley (15.3 points per game), Geben (9.8 ppg) and Mount St. Joseph guard Phil Booth (10.3 ppg) powered Team Takeover to a 4-0 record in L.A.

** Maryland combo guard commitment Melo Trimble starred for D.C. Assault at the Hoop Group Jamfest in Pittsburgh.'s Corey Albertson recapped the action.

Against a smaller but quicker guard in [Quentin] Snider, Trimble was forced to use his strength and length to try to keep Snider out of the lane, leading to mixed results. On offense, Trimble was much more efficient, knocking down long shots from behind the arc and making smart decisions with the ball to set up teammates for open shots. He's not the quickest player, but as a lead guard who rarely turns the ball over, Trimble is every bit a four-star guard who should be ready to play early in his college career.

** The Terps are monitoring 2014 Riverdale Baptist center Chinanu Onuaku, according to's Alex Kline.

The 2014 center from Riverdale Baptist (MD) is still very much so raw on the offensive end of the game, but he posses the body of a high-major big man with his 6-foot-11 frame, as well as a many similar traits to his older brother. The 2014 big is listing strong interest from the likes of Seton Hall, Georgetown, Cincinnati, Maryland and Virginia Tech, with others taking a look.
