Just days after completing an undefeated boys basketball season by winning the Class 3A state championship with City on Saturday, Knights senior Kamau Stokes has verbally committed to play basketball at Toledo. The 5-foot-11, 155-pound guard confirmed via Twitter that he planned to play for the Rockets. Stokes, who also won a state championship with Dunbar in 2013, picked Toledo over reported offers from UMBC, Mount St. Mary's, Delaware and other Division I programs. Stokes transfered to City this academic year and helped make the talented No. 1 Knights the preseason favorite to win the 3A state title . A tenacious defender and effective outside shooter, Stokes scored 13 points in City's 59-48 championship win over Westlake.

Despite being cut by the NBA Development League's Delaware 87ers in January, former Patterson guard Aquille Carr hopes to continue his professional career at an even higher level.

Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz was watching UCLA's offense when he put the video on rewind to watch Jonathan Ogden again. "There was one play where he was about 15 yards downfield and then he starts driving the free safety further down the field," said Ferentz. "He does it so easily that it never occurs to you that he is 6-8 and weighs 318 pounds. He's so fluid and good at what he does that he lulls you to sleep. " Ogden's athleticism is why the club made him the No. 1 pick in Ravens history Saturday, and why it believes he will have an easy transition to playing left guard.

Many of the eyes Wednesday at the Ravens' first organized team activities (OTA) workout that was open to the media were fixated for a decent chunk of practice on the team's offensive line. Team officials had identified that area as one they would like to improve this offseason, and they have attempted to do so by spending a pair of draft picks on linemen, Kelechi Osemele (second round) and Gino Gradkowski(fourth). The Ravens rotated several linemen with the first-team offense, including second-year players Jah Reid and Justin Boren.

Andre Gurode, a five-time Pro Bowler at center who started at right guard in 2003 and 2004 with the Dallas Cowboys, compared making the switch to left guard to asking a right-handed person to write with his left hand. “I've played guard before,” Gurode said Thursday. “I played on the right side, but I've never played on the left side. It's challenging, but I'm getting better day by day.” Gurode said he and Mark LeVoir are getting reps at left guard while starter Ben Grubbs continues to rehabilitate his injured toe. Grubbs has sat out the team's past two practices and is extremely questionable to play in Sunday's road game against the St. Louis Rams.

Jah Reid has only been a professional football player for about a year now, but he knows that a lot could change in the NFL in the span of a couple of weeks. The Ravens could use their 29th overall draft pick in next Thursday's first round on a guard or they could just as easily sign one of the available free agents at the position. Reid, however, isn't spending a whole lot of time thinking about either scenario. He's too busy trying to earn the position for himself. "I have to go in and expect to play," Reid said [Thursday]

The daughter of an NBA player or coach must make certain sacrifices. The league's time commitment could hardly be more demanding. Maryland freshman guard Lexie Brown is a realist. She knows that her father - Sacramento Kings assistant coach Dee Brown - would have a difficult time breaking away from his team to watch Lexie and the Terps in Sunday night's Final Four game against undefeated Notre Dame in Nashville, Tenn. But she remained hopeful. “Every year since about 10th grade he's really missed a lot of my basketball seasons, but he's always managed to make it to the state playoffs and now the Elite Eight game,” she said Thursday.
