Weekend wrap — Big game for Burns

The first game of Devin Burns' senior season couldn’t have gone much better.

The Maryland quarterback commitment was “nearly flawless” in Carver (Ga.) High’s 34-6 win over Spencer on Friday.

Burns completed eight of his 10 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown in the first half, earning the Wallace Davis Hustle Award, which is given to Carver’s MVP each year.

• Maryland tight end recruit Nermin Delic made a key play on defense in Northwest Whitfield (Ga.) High’s 32-20 win over Southeast.

Darnell’s first touchdown came on a redeeming drive for the offense after the Bruins turned the ball over on downs at the Southeast 26 on the game’s opening possession. McCutchen fumbled after a short run on the first play when the Raiders took over and Bruins defensive end Nermin Delic was there to hand the ball back to his teammates.

“I actually got double-teamed and I was kicked out, spinning my way out of it,” Delic said. “I saw the ball and I was going to pick it up and run with it, but I did the safe thing and just jumped on it.”

Basketball recruiting

• Dix Hills, N.Y., power forward Tobias Harris took a trip to College Park this weekend.

“I went unofficially,” he wrote in a text. “My older brother lives in Virginia so I was down with him. It went good.”

Harris participated in a few pickup games on the trip, according to (Credit Testudo Times)

The two brothers joined recent Maryland commit Terrence Ross and played in pick-up games with the rest of the Terrapins squad.

Although Tobias and Terrence didn’t play together during the day, the rising senior does like the future Terrapin’s style of play.

Sounds pretty interesting that he went on campus twice and apparently was considering going again today. Maybe Maryland would be an intersting destination for Harris with his family in the area and so many top-notch players already committed to the program. I honestly think he'll end up somewhere else, but you never know. Heard from a few AAU buddies the Terps are riding Jones and D. Harris real hard. The word on the street is Chucky is the man and Gary is closing the deals and a lot of kids are talking about the Terps incoming classes. Everybody knows they need one or two more frontline players and they are top 5 material. With so many players to choose from, it's hard to see how they go wrong.
