Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. Highly touted 2014 quarterback William Crest didn't have to travel to College Park to get a good look at the Maryland football team. The Terps, who practiced at Dunbar on Saturday, came to him. Crest walked up and down the sidelines of the Poets' field Saturday, taking in the Terps' ninth spring practice and imagining what it might be like to suit up for the hometown school.

Hundreds of fans packed into the bleachers at Dunbar's football field Saturday afternoon, and dozens more looked on through the fence. They were there to see the Maryland football team play its first of two scrimmages at local high schools. And on the first drive of the day, they weren't disappointed. On the scrimmage's opening play, quarterback Ricardo Young found wide receiver Deon Long down the left sideline for a 70-yard gain. Seconds later, running back Brandon Ross rumbled into the end zone for a 5-yard score.

Randy Edsall has been committed to growing Maryland's brand ever since he took the job in College Park more than two years ago. The state flag was already printed across the Byrd Stadium end zones when he arrived on campus, but that wasn't enough. The football coach unveiled state flag-inspired "Maryland Pride" uniforms for his first game on the sideline and replaced the Terps moniker with Maryland on both the field and jerseys. On Saturday afternoon, he'll unveil another part of his plan.

Randy Edsall is a football coach, not a marketing guy, but he's got the lingo down. Ask him why the Maryland football team is practicing Saturday at Dunbar, and he says it's all about growing the Terps brand in this area and throughout the rest of the state, too. "What we need to do is make sure we're going out and meeting the people and being visible in the Baltimore community, rather than expecting people to come to us," he says....

Breathing a collective sigh of relief before celebrating, Maryland's most prolific boys basketball team - Dunbar - added to the program's legacy in Saturday's Class 1A state championship game at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center. With a hard-fought 54-52 win over No. 9 New Town in a rematch of last year's title game, the No. 1 Dunbar captured its state record 15th Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association championship. Combined with their 20 Maryland Scholastic Association championships prior to joining the MPSSAA in the 1992-93 school year, the Poets now have 35 championships.

Dunbar could do just about anything it wanted against Washington in Friday's Class 1A state semifinal. The Poets had a large advantage in size, speed and strength. In other words, they were just too much. The Jaguars, from Somerset County, scored the game's first basket, but the rest of the evening belonged to No. 1 Dunbar. The Poets needed only four minutes to increase their lead to 10 points, and they didn't have much trouble in a 70-41 victory over Washington at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center.

It took a while, but Dunbar's girls basketball team finally hit its stride in the third quarter of Thursday night's state Class 1A semifinal. The two-time defending champion Poets used a 17-point spurt that began late in the second half and got rolling with two Kahla McIver 3-pointers to spark a 55-43 victory over Mardela at UMBC's RAC Arena. Once the Poets took a 39-36 lead on McIver's 20-footer to end the third quarter, they revved up their defense and hit the boards to hold the Warriors scoreless for nearly five minutes of the fourth.
