Baltimore Sun reporter Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. With the live evaulation period of the 2015 recruiting class starting this weekend, who's on Maryland radar and who do the Terps have a realistic shot at getting? Don Markus:   Considering the players Maryland loses after next season, this is going to be an important recruiting class - perhaps the most important for Mark Turgeon based on who he's going to have to replace.

Jared Nickens is used to being overlooked. As a high school player in central New Jersey, Nickens and his parents decided to have him reclassified as a junior in order to give him an extra season to get better offers to play college basketball. Now a senior at the Westtown School in West Chester, Pa., the 6-foot-6, 190-pound small forward doesn't get nearly the same attention as junior teammate Georgios Papagiannas, a 7-1 center from Greece. In Maryland's four-player 2014 recruiting class, Nickens is largely viewed by outsiders as an afterthought behind guards Melo Trimble and Dion Wiley and 7-1 center Trayvon Reed.

Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon believes that you can never have enough shooters. That philosophy was proven again Sunday, when rising senior swingman Jared Nickens orally committed to the Terps after taking a visit to College Park over the weekend. The 6-foot-6, 180-pound Nickens joins two more highly touted prospects, shooting guards Dion Wiley and Melo Trimble, for the 2014 recruiting class. Barring any early departures, it brings the Terps to 12 scholarship players - one under the limit - for that season.
