Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. When Taivon Jacobs committed to Ohio State on July 19, he had no reservations or worries about his decision. He had envisioned playing inside Ohio Stadium as a kid, so picking the Buckeyes was like a dream come true. But two weeks before National Signing Day, Jacobs began to have second thoughts.

When a stress fracture in March ended Devon Williams' outdoor track season at Churchill High in Eugene, Ore., the 2008 Olympic hopeful and two-time All-Metro selection in both indoor and outdoor track from Towson Catholic thought it also might damage her chance to get a scholarship to a major Division I program. "I prayed on it every night. I prayed to God, like, `Please, have the best schools - the ones that fit me the most - please have them still recruit me,' " said Williams, 17, who became the first female sophomore to be named The Sun's Athlete of the Year in the spring of 2005.
