Trayvon Reed, a 7-foot-1, 235-pound freshman center who is one of the centerpieces in Maryland's top 10 recruiting class, will miss summer workouts with a fractured right ankle, Terps men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon said Tuesday. Reed suffered the injury, which will keep him off the court “eight to 12 weeks,” in April.  After showing up at the Capital Classic all-star game in Northern Virginia in a walking boot on what he said was a “sprained right ankle," Reed said he got hurt “running bases” at the Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J. The four-star recruit, who is originally from Mobile, Ala., and also spent time outside Atlanta, finished up high school playing for former No. 1 NBA draft pick and college star Pervis Ellison.

Pe'Shon Howard wore No. 21 on Thursday night for the U.S. All-Stars in the Capital Classic. It's the number that the 6-foot-2 guard wore in the recently-ended high school season, and he hopes it will be his again at the University of Maryland this fall. Howard's ambition to wear "21" might be considered audacious since it was also the number of Greivis Vasquez, who recently ended his Maryland career as the school's second all-time scorer. Howard -- who joined fellow future Terps Terrell Stoglin and Haukur Palsson in the high school all-star game -- said he intended no disrespect to Vasquez.

Before the Capital Classic's fourth and final all-star game tipped Saturday night, before the bands of fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Maryland's future crossed state lines to the high school best known for its “Remember the Titans” lineage, it was obvious one recruiting class' meet-and-greet would become a welcome party. Sam Cassell Jr., after all, had committed to the Terps once before. The guard had been shacked up in a hotel with four other players who'd done the same in writing.

ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The 41st Capital Classic at T.C. Williams High on Saturday night was supposed to be a local showcase for four of Maryland's highly touted, five-player recruiting class. Those hopes were scuttled when 7-foot-11/2 center Trayvon Reed showed up wearing a boot on his sprained right ankle and shooting guard Dion Wiley didn't show up at all, telling the promoters Friday that he had a family commitment. While the two who did play - McDonald's All-American guard Melo Trimble and small forward Jared Nickens - showed flashes of what attracted Mark Turgeon's attention, a pair of power forwards wound up as the game's stars.

There hasn't been this much off-season buzz about a Maryland team since the Terps went to back-to-back Final Fours. Unfortunately for Mark Turgeon, most of the talk continues to surround the mass exodus of players in the aftermath of a disappointing 17-15 season. But if you look at the players who left and those who will ultimately replace them, a few of Turgeon's mushrooming list of detractors might find a moment to pause and take a deep breath. If they still had the five scholarship players who have decided to transfer this offseason, the Terps would have had more depth and experience.

Shaquille Cleare and Charles Mitchell have been best friends since coming up for the Capital Classic before their freshman year at Maryland and have roomed together since coming to College Park a few months later. That makes things a little tricky if Cleare continues to struggle and Mitchell continues to blossom. The highest-ranked player in last year's freshman class, Cleare sat behind Alex Len at center as a freshman while Mitchell, not nearly as touted coming out of high school, got more time at power forward.
