Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. In three months, Douglass (Upper Marlboro) wide receiver Paul Harris has gone from having no offers to sitting one short of 20. And Harris isn't exactly piling offers from mid-level schools; some of college football's powerhouses have invited him to join their programs. But for Harris, who added offer No. 19 this weekend when Virginia Tech offered, four schools are currently standing out slightly above the rest.

It's easy to be critical of the Orioles' offense three games into the season, simply because we've seen the script play out this way before. Down the stretch last season, and even as far back as the 2012 postseason, the vaunted Orioles offense had its share of impatient at-bats and struggles with runners in scoring position. When the Orioles offense is clicking, it's one of the best in the game. But when it's slumping, it can be downright ugly to watch. Granted, we're nowhere near that point yet. It's only three games into the season.

Maryland continues to hold onto the No. 2 spot in the Inside Lacrosse Brine Division I Women's Media Top 20 behind No. 1 North Carolina, the defending national champion. Both teams are 9-0 and will meet April 5 in Chapel Hill, N.C., for a rematch of last year's title game, which North Carolina won, 13-12, in triple overtime. Boston College continues to improve on the highest ranking in its school history, moving from No. 5 to No. 4 and giving the Atlantic Coast Conference the top four teams, with Syracuse holding onto No. 3. The ACC has six of the Top 10 teams with Notre Dame at No. 6 and Duke at No. 10. Johns Hopkins, off to the best start in its Division I history at 9-0, continues its rise, hopping over Northwestern and Massachusetts to No. 7. Navy's lack of schedule strength is beginning to hurt as the Midshipmen fall from No. 11 to No. 14 despite an 8-0 record.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Make no mistake, Kimmie Meissner would rather be skating an exhibition tonight than sitting in some fancy restaurant or indulging in a rare chocolate treat.

The final day of the regular season provided only more headaches for the NCAA men's lacrosse selection committee.Several upsets and near-misses involving teams on the bubble have expanded the field fighting for three final tournament spots. The committee must weed out two from the list of UMBC, Harvard, Hofstra, Hobart and North Carolina.The only teams assured of a bid will be the eight seeded teams: Princeton, Loyola, Maryland, Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, Virginia, Duke and Georgetown. Butler, which probably won't be seeded, is in the tournament as a result of being the automatic Midwest selection.

Maryland's women's lacrosse team likely earned more than bragging rights with Sunday afternoon's victory at Loyola. The 12-7 win probably helped the Terrapins clinch one of four seeded spots for the NCAA Division I tournament, which begins next Thursday. Each of the top four teams retains home-field advantage through the first two rounds, before the tournament moves to Princeton, N.J., for the semifinals and finals on May 21 and 23. In this week's coaches poll, the Terps and Loyola switched places.

Tuesday night's men's soccer game between UMBC and Delaware at Retriever Soccer Park could be an entertaining show for fans -- and an exhaustive exercise for the goalkeepers.

The Maryland women's win over Georgetown Wednesday night might have gone a long way toward earning the Terrapins a top four seed in the NCAA tournament. The top four play at home through the first two rounds before the winners head to the final four at Stony Brook on Long Island Memorial Day weekend. Although they must wait until May 6 to learn their spot in the bracket, the Terps (17-3) finished especially strong avenging regular-season losses to No. 7 Duke and No. 4 North Carolina in the ACC tournament and avoiding a letdown against the No. 16 Hoyas in the regular-season finale.

It's down to the top four all-stars, and things are getting serious. Each girl is awesome in her own right, and all have been top contenders throughout the season. This week, the girls had to write a blog for vogue.it and were directed in a motion editorial by Tyra herself for her model fantasy novel "Modelland," dressed as some sort of gladiator rooster in couture. Not sure what that has to do with modeling, but sure, I can dig feathered armor. It's all going to culminate next week during the season finale.

After he had moved into Wimbledon's fourth round Saturday, top-seeded and defending champion Rafael Nadal , the Spaniard, suggested that the top four players in the men's rankings now — himself, Novak Djokovic , Roger Federer and Andy Murray — were playing as solidly as any top four in history. "It is difficult to compare the moments of tennis 15 years ago because the game changes," Nadal said. "The only thing I can say is before, in my opinion, the top four players didn't play as solid as today is going.
