Weekend wrap — Smith leads rout

Wilson (Pa.) Area High moved to 3-0 this weekend, thanks in large part to Maryland quarterback commitment Tyler Smith.

The 6-foot-5, 198-pounder guided the Warriors to a 51-17 win over Northwestern on Friday.

A.J. Parker, a junior running back, enjoyed a career game with 188 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown. Quarterback Tyler Smith, though his receivers left some completions and yards slip through their fingers, finished with 249 yards and two touchdown passes.

• UM quarterback recruit Devin Burns threw a 6-yard touchdown pass in Carver (Ga.) High’s 28-19 win over Baldwin County.

Carver’s Burns completed 14 of 19 pass attempts for 82 yards.

• Terps wide receiver commitment Matt Robinson caught a 28-yard touchdown pass in Atholton’s 35-14 win over Centennial.

[Atholton quarterback Kalvin] Seamonson had nine completions for 130 yards, with Matt Robinson accounting for 59 yards on four receptions. Four other Raiders also caught passes.

• Maryland tight end pledge Nermin Delic helped Northwest Whitfield (Ga.) to a 21-7 win over Woodland.

Senior end Nermin Delic does a lot of little things that don’t necessarily show up in the stats for the Bruins and he was part of the crew that cleared room for Lance Andrews, Jordan Darnell and Chad Keeter when Northwest loaded up its line to one side. On defense, he also gave the Wildcats’ quarterbacks trouble by stretching his 6-foot-4 frame in their path several times …

Basketball recruiting

Tobias Harris spoke with Box of M.E.S.S. about each of his in-home visits, including his interaction with Maryland’s Gary Williams. (Credit to Testudo Times for the link.)

“Coach Williams’ main focus was to show me how I would fit into his system. With the recruits that have already committed along with the other guys on the team, he really explained the roll for me as a freshman. I would be a scorer and he would let me play my game right away. He also showed me the academics and talked about the professional players he has made during his time at Maryland.”

Any news on some dominating Offensive or Defensive line signees? I think all of Terp Nation is waiting to see someone start dominating these positions so the "skill" positions can shine.
