Weekend wrap — Robinson emerges at WR

Maryland athlete recruit Matt Robinson was Atholton quarterback Kalvin Seamonson’s favorite target in the Raiders’ 15-14 win over Howard.

[Seamonson] also was 7-for-13 passing for 100 yards. Matt Robinson had all seven catches. Andrew King was the Raiders' leading rusher, with 12 carries for 135 yards.

• Terps quarterback commitment Devin Burns found the end zone once in Carver (Ga.) High’s 21-12 loss to Northside-Warner Robins.

Carver quarterback Devin Burns connected with Artimas Samuel for 20 yards to move the Tigers deeper into Northside territory. Running back Isaiah Crowell got his team close with a 15-yard scamper inside the Eagles’ 5. Burns eventually scored from the 1, but the PAT was missed.

• Maryland tight end pledge Nermin Delic blocked a punt and scored a touchdown in Northwest Whitfield (Ga.) High’s 28-7 loss to Sprayberry.

The Jackets added two more touchdowns in the quarter and another in the third, but the Bruins -- who sputtered on offense -- avoided the shutout with Nermin Delic’s 20-yard fumble return for a touchdown after Sprayberry botched a punt snap with a minute left in the Region 7-4A crossover game.

• UM quarterback recruit Tyler Smith struggled Friday night but still led Wilson (Pa.) Area High to a 35-7 win over Northern Lehigh.

Smith, a University of Maryland recruit, did not have one of his better games. He completed just 12-for-31 for 121 yards and was just 4-for-19 for 33 yards at one point late in the third quarter.

Basketball recruiting

• San Diego power forward James Johnson -- who had an offer from Maryland -- committed to Virginia on Sunday.

“It was the combination of academics and athletics -- the Virginia degree and the network of alums meant a lot,” [Johnson’s father Ted] said. “Playing in the ACC was also a big draw, though he was also starting to get really wooed by the PAC-10 and Big 12.”

• A Maryland coach will likely visit Los Alamos, N.M., center Alex Kirk soon, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

Kirk's father, Alan, said Friday that Alex Kirk visited New Mexico over the weekend and was considering setting up an official visit with Arizona. He is hosting an in-home visit from Miller on Wednesday, while coaches at West Virginia, Maryland, Oregon State, SMU, Minnesota and ASU are also scheduled to visit him, Alan Kirk said.
