Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland  sports. Maryland's defense is ranked eighth in the nation, giving up 261.2 yards per game. Is the defense really that good? Jeff Barker: Yes and no. There is no doubt that coordinator Brian Stewart's 3-4 defense is vastly superior to last year's unit before Stewart arrived. The defense has been particularly strong up front, giving up an average of just 83.5 rushing yards.

Authorities have identified the man who was fatally shot Friday by FBI agents in Owings Mills. Jameel O. Harrison, 34, was killed during a drug investigation in which three FBI agents and officers from other law enforcement agencies encountered him in his vehicle, authorities said. The FBI has revealed few details in the case and an agency spokeswoman said no further information would be released today. The shooting happened at about 4:45 p.m. in the 9700 block of Reisterstown Road on an access road to a shopping center that includes a Wal-Mart and Sam's Club.

Some might look at Roddy Peters as a consolation prize for Maryland after the Terps finished second to Kentucky in their pursuit of the Harrison twins. Peters, the 6-4 Suitland point guard who announced Tuesday that he was headed to College Park next season , is not as talented as Andrew Harrison. But I think he might be a better fit for what Mark Turgeon is trying to build - or rebuild - than either of the Harrisons. He is this year's Jake Layman, a kid who not many upper-echelon programs wanted after his sophomore year in high school and was highly sought by the time he was a senior.

Roddy Peters, the four-star recruit from Suitland who committed to Maryland on Tuesday, had a pretty good coach to learn from this past spring and summer while playing for D.C. Assault. Former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, a former point guard himself, helped coach Peters on the local AAU powerhouse and believes the Terps made out well for themselves. "He's a terrific passer, a willing passer, who's great in the open court," Jordan said Wednesday from Los Angeles, where he is now an assistant with the Lakers.

ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep said today that Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his staff had to "work really hard" in the past two weeks to secure a commitment from Suitland guard Roddy Peters, who announced Tuesday that he was coming to College Park next season. Telep called the commitment from Peters "significant" in the fact that it shows the Terps will be "a local option" for top recruits, many of whom went elsewhere during the last few years of Gary Williams' 22-year career at his alma mater.

Outside of Roddy Peters' commitment to Maryland on Tuesday , it was a slow week in Terps recruiting. With that in mind, here are some links to various Peters-related stories/blogs from this week: ** ESPN.com's Dave Telep told Don Markus that Peters' pledge was "significant" for Mark Turgeon . ** Former Washington Wizards coach and current Los Angeles Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan coached Peters over the summer on D.C. Assault. Jordan offered his take on Peters to Markus . ** Landing Peters was no consolation prize for missing out on the Harrison twins, Markus wrote . The Suitland guard should be better for the Terps' team chemistry in the long run. ** Testudo Times' Pete Volk wrote about Peters and the importance of momentum for the Terps . ** Testudo Times' Ben Broman gives Turgeon credit for getting "knocked off the horse" with the Harrisons but jumping "back on real quick.

Joe Vellano has been named to several “watch” lists, including one for the Outland Trophy. Where does he rank on the list of Terps career defensive linemen? Jeff Barker: Hey, where does he rank in his own family? His father, Paul, was a Kodak AFCA All-American and an All-ACC selection as a defensive tackle.

The buzz surrounding Shaquille Cleare has dulled a bit since the 6-9 power forward from Houston announced more than a year ago that he was coming to Maryland. The spring and summer of 2012 had all been about whether his former AAU teammates, Andrew and Aaron Harrison, would join him here next year. Cleare, the centerpiece of Mark Turgeon's first recruiting class at Maryland, said he didn't seem to mind the spotlight going elsewhere. But now, with the Harrisons choosing defending national-champion Kentucky over the Terps, the buzz surrounding Cleare will certainly be back when he takes the court Friday night at Comcast Center for Maryland Madness.

Nearly 30 years after they first met while living in the same East Baltimore housing project, and 20 years after they left Dunbar to play college basketball, Rodrick Harrison and Rodney Elliott are back in their hometown with a new dream. Harrison, the second-year coach at Mount Zion Prep, and Elliott, one of his assistants, are trying to give players who didn't have the grades or game coming out of high school a chance to do what they did. Harrison, who played at UMBC and was later an assistant coach at Dunbar, and Elliott, who played at Maryland before embarking on a 13-year professional career spent mostly in Europe, teamed last year with the Mount Zion Baptist Christian School in Northeast Baltimore to provide the academic support and basketball guidance for a dozen or so players each year.
