Brandon Nixon, a 6-foot-7, 325-pound offensive lineman from Pottstown, Pa., became the 20th player to commit to Maryland's football program. Nixon, who chose the Terps over Penn State on Sunday, helped lead Pottstown to a 10-1 record in 2002, playing on both the offensive and defensive lines. Recruiting analyst Tom Lemming rates the player 25th nationally among offensive tackles. "I felt comfortable with Maryland for a while and I finally came out with a decision," Nixon said. "If I come in with a little knowledge, the only thing that separates me from playing is my strength, so there might be an opportunity to get some playing time."

PHILADELPHIA - The sight-seeing began in rural upper Montgomery County, Pa., where 20 men and women in a luxury tour bus drove past cornfields and brand-new $300,000 homes, looking out the window at razed farmland and half-empty parking lots. Some took notes. Others snapped photographs. For the group, all members of the Sierra Club, the recent "Tour de Sprawl" was a different kind of day-trip. Part of an environmental voter-education campaign, the trip provided the visitors with an up-close look at suburban sprawl.

Diver Joe Yingling descended to the Patapsco River's murky bottom yesterday fully aware that he would find the last of three bodies missing since a Seaport Taxi capsized 10 days ago in high winds off Fort McHenry. When he landed on the silt-covered bottom 51 feet down, Yingling, 37, crawled on hands and knees in zero visibility toward an object that had been identified by sonar. After searching for three minutes, he found the body of Corinne J. Schillings, 26, of Washington. Ten days after the first Baltimore firefighter splashed into stormy waters off Fort McHenry to help a passenger from the water taxi accident, Yingling emerged yesterday as the last.
