December 06, 2013|By Jonas Shaffer | The Baltimore Sun

In this week's recruiting roundup, Melo Trimble picks up right where he left off. (Which is to say, making Maryland fans unhappy about having to wait another year for him.)

Football recruiting

-- Class of 2014 offensive line target Damian Prince and defensive back target Jalen Tabor are five-star prospects, according to Rivals.com's latest top-100 update. Prince checks in as the No. 10 overall and second-ranked offensive lineman prospect, while Tabor is the No. 24 overall and sixth-ranked defensive back prospect.

-- Tabor, meanwhile, tweeted Wednesday that he will make his decision on Christmas Day. It's still possible that he keeps his college destination private until the Jan. 2 Under Armour All-America Game, where he has said he would announce.

-- Class of 2014 defensive line commits Brett Kulka and David Shaw and defensive back commits Jordan Noil and Josh Woods (McDonogh) have all been upgraded to low-end three-star prospects on Rivals, meaning the class is now absent two-stars, according to at least one service.

--Noil had an interception, his second of the playoffs, in a 28-7 win last Friday.

-- Class of 2014 offensive line target Marcus Applefield will make his decision next Friday, he tweeted Wednesday. The three-star target is down to Rutgers, Maryland, Purdue and Virginia, with an official visit to the heavily favored Scarlet Knights set for this weekend.

-- Class of 2014 defensive back target Dravon Henry is down to Pittsburgh and West Virginia, according to 247Sports.com's Chris Anderson.

-- Randy Edsall visited DeMatha on Wednesday, then reportedly saw Stags offensive line target Brock Ruble later that night. North Carolina State, Maryland and Florida State comprise his top three.

-- Class of 2015 defensive back target Marcus Lewis decommitted from Virginia Tech on Wednesday, according to Rivals.com's Adam Friedman.

Basketball recruiting

-- Class of 2014 guard commit Dion Wiley had a game-high 24 points in an 86-54 win to open the season.

-- Class of 2014 guard commit Melo Trimble had 33 points, including his team's last nine, in a dramatic, season-opening 75-73 victory. Highlights below:
