Terps recruit Taylor earns McDonald's invite

Maryland women’s point guard recruit Dara Taylor has been named to the McDonald’s All-American team.

The 5-foot-7, 135-pounder from Caravel (Del.) Academy had a standout summer on the AAU circuit with the Philadelphia Belles.

“She [earned her McDonald’s invite] on the summer circuit. She just did a great job,” said Belles coach Kevin Lynch. “She’s a team player who’s very, very unselfish. She never once complained about the role she was given or how she was being used. She’s just a terrific kid from a terrific family.”

Maryland men’s target Lance Stephenson was also picked to play in the game. Both the men’s and women’s games will be played April 1 in Miami.

Check back with Recruiting Report tomorrow for more on Taylor’s selection.

How do you like our chances of getting Lance Stephenson? Would this put to rest all of the recruiting woes directed at Williams?

Aaron -- No inside info here, but it sounds like they have a decent shot. Landing Stephenson would probably serve as a reprieve of sorts for GW from critics of his recruiting. Stephenson, Williams and Padgett would be a monster class.
