Weekend wrap — Terps' elite camp

The Maryland men’s basketball program held an elite camp at Comcast Center over the weekend, and’s Seth Hoffman was on hand for the action.

Terps shooting guard commitment Terrence Ross scored 31 points during a Saturday night game. Hoffman caught up with Ross and later small forward target Mychal Parker, who said this about Maryland.

“They really are at the top of my list, they’re really number one really,” [Parker] said. “I’ll make my list in the middle of July but Maryland is in good position now.”

• Oak Hill point guard Pe’Shon Howard gave NBE Basketball Report’s Jeff Borzello an updated recruiting list during the the Rumble in the Bronx AAU tournament.

Pe’shon Howard, who plays for Oak Hill during the school season, listed Stanford, Arkansas, Harvard, Virginia Tech, Alabama, Virginia, Rutgers, South Carolina, Arizona and Xavier as colleges of interest.

Borzello also has updates on Buffalo, N.Y., power forward Will Regan and Delaware guard Trevor Cooney, a 2011 UM target.

• Two in-state football recruits with reported Terps offers made commitments over the weekend. On Saturday, Good Counsel athlete E.J. Scott pledged to Virginia.

Scott, who had 18 catches for 475 yards and seven touchdowns last season, also considered offers from Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Louisville, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Iowa, East Carolina, Rutgers and Akron. Cobb had an appointment from Navy, and also had invitations to join the football teams at Harvard and Yale. U.Va. was the first school to offer a scholarship.

On Sunday, DeMatha defensive back Jeff Knox, a Pittsburgh native, pledged to the Panthers.

Knox chose the Panthers over offers from Penn State and Michigan as well as Wake Forest and Maryland.

Really good news about Parker having the Terps at the top of his list. Right now, ESPN has the Terps as the #13 recruiting class just because of Ross and Stoglin. If Parker joins in, we could rise just about to the top.

It really seems like recruiting is about momentum. You get one good guy and the rest seem to come along. But great props to Gary for seeing the problem and doing what he can to correct it.

Does anyone know who is visitng today as reported on

Trever Conly 2011 top 20 prospect from Delaware was the visitor today

Here's to Greivis and Gary to making the right decisions today and making UMD much stronger. Great to see G.V. back in a Terps uniform for another year and so long Stephenson. This recruit put us through the ringer and a kid like him is not worth risking our entire program on. Please don't let me hear how great he is, and that he is not near as bad as the media makes him out to be. He is a headcase and he will be a problem wherever he lands. He's T.O. with a jumper!

Let go Smith, Parker, Harris. Big signing is coming soon...I feel it! Nice reporting Matt.

Matt- I hope this doesn't put an end to the Lance situation.
Remember, that it was Carmelo that basically sealed the Title for Cuse back in 2003.
With a 3G Backcourt of Vasquez, Stephenson, and Mosley, and alternating Milbourne, Williams, Padgett, and Burney underneath would have to be one of the elite teams in all of the NCAA.
Go for broke and take the risk. He is only here 1 year anyway, then they can get Parker and Ross in there to replace Lance and Milbourne's rolls.
