It's not every day a helicopter lands near a high school football field to drop off a major college football coach on a recruiting trip. Thursday afternoon, Penn State coach James Franklin made such a splashy entrance at Woodlawn to see a couple of Franklin's top prospects. While recruiting by helicopter is nothing new for the Nittany Lions coach, it was something new for the Franklin high school players he was there to see. Indians coach Anthony Burgos said Franklin was looking at senior offensive lineman Patrick Allen and junior wide receiver Steven Smothers.

But equally frightening is the group's key premise. Like many reactionary movements, ISIS feeds upon and nurtures the dangerous notion that somehow the world, or at least the parts over which they claim authority, can somehow be restored to an earlier, idyllic era — in this case, the 8th century. ISIS can chop off all the heads members want, but here's a newsflash for them: Try as they might to reverse history, time marches in but one direction.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. Maryland continues to put the full-court press on Dion Wiley , but as of right now, he doesn't appear to be budging from his commitment timeframe. Mark Turgeon would like to wrap up Wiley's commitment as soon as possible, but the surging 6-foot-4 guard from Potomac High is enjoying a strong start to the AAU season and the recruiting boost that comes with it. “Yeah, they have been [trying to get a commitment]

Diamond Stone , one of the most heralded rising juniors in the nation, is having a big summer on the court and a quiet one on the recruiting trail.

Byron Cowart, the No. 1 high school football recruit in the nation according to Rivals.com, had never been on an airplane before Friday. The rising-senior defensive end from Armwood High School in Seffner, Fla., compared it to a roller coaster he rode days earlier at Busch Gardens. Cowart's head hurt during the plane's ascension, but he remained calm by focusing on his destination - Baltimore. Cornerback Frank Buncom IV had a long, but relatively relaxing flight from his hometown of San Diego to Baltimore.

Taking aim at the ever-accelerating recruiting of young athletes, the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Association issued a statement Wednesday to its membership indicating that it does not support recruiting events for boys who have yet to enter ninth grade. "College coaches are great teachers of the game. We should be involved in helping develop both players and coaches," IMLCA president Richie Meade, head coach at Furman and former Navy head coach, said in the statement. "Programs that teach are very valuable in advancing our sport in a healthy way. We all agree recruiting young men when they have not yet entered high school is not the direction in which lacrosse should move.

The Baltimore Sun will follow Franklin's Steven Smothers, Gilman's Ellison Jordan and McDonogh's Eric Burrell on the recruiting trail as they try to decide over the next year which college will be the best fit. This is part one in an occasional series. Steven Smothers' cell phone started dancing just a few seconds past midnight on Sept. 1. The Franklin junior had switched his phone to vibrate, but he didn't ignore it, knowing college football coaches could begin contacting Class of 2016 prospects via text message, email and social media immediately after midnight.

Shawn Taylor has been on the football coaching staff at Robinson High School in Tampa, Fla., since 2001. The school has produced former Alabama star Javier Arenas as well as other successful Football Bowl Subdivision players. For years, Taylor said, dozens of colleges would stop by and check in about players during the spring. Maryland wasn't really a presence, he said. This year, in particular, is different. The Terps have been down there. They are coming up in conversations.

Trayvon Reed, the 7-foot-1 center who was not allowed to enroll at Maryland after his arrest outside a College Park convenience store last month, has committed to play at Auburn, according to multiple media reports. Reed, who was set to become part of a top-10 recruiting class that will be the Terps' first in the Big Ten Conference, was arrested July 30 for theft, resisting arrest and second-degree assault after an incident with an undercover police officer. Because the officer suffered two broken fingers in the altercation, one of Reed's two assault charges is considered a felony.
