Weekend wrap — Till makes return
It didn't take long for Titus Till to make an impact in his return to the field.
The Maryland safety commitment missed Wise’s first three games of the season with a broken scapula. But in his return to the active roster Friday, Till was instrumental in the Pumas’ win.
But as Till ran down the middle, quarterback DeAndre Smith heaved a pass that Till hauled in for a 50-yard catch that led to the game's only score, lifting visiting Wise past No. 14 Eleanor Roosevelt, 6-0, in a Prince George's 4A game on Friday in Greenbelt.
While Robinson, a 6-foot-4 wide receiver bound for Maryland, caught eight passes for 185 yards, quarterback Kalvin Seamonson had an even bigger day. The senior went 17-for-26 passing for 308 yards, threw for three touchdowns and ran for one.
Smith, a Maryland recruit, completed a very respectable 18 of 32 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns -- a 67-yarder and a 26-yarder to senior wideout Brian Cooper. His problem was throwing too many balls into the arms of players wearing green and white.
On the previous play, [Mike] Martin also broke a 22-yard run. Chad Keeter then ran a quarterback option and, just as he reached the line of scrimmage, dumped a shovel pass to tight end Nermin Delic, who was standing wide open in the corner of the end zone for the two-point conversion to make the score 11-7.
DeVaughn, who is 6-foot-4, also considered offers from Oklahoma, Purdue, Georgia and Louisville.
Check back with Recruiting Report later this week for more on DeVaughn’s commitment.
• SLAM has ranked the Maryland men’s basketball team’s three-man 2010 recruiting class No. 3 in the country.
No one is talking about the Terps, a puzzling fact considering they made a big-time splash by getting Terrence Ross, Mychal Parker and Terrell Stoglin to believe that big-time basketball is on the verge of coming back in College Park. Ross might be a bit underrated now, but the 6-5 wing won’t be for long, not with coach Gary Williams calling the shots. Parker and Stoglin are capable of contributing right away.
• Maryland didn’t make the cut for Portland, Ore., forward Terrence Jones.
Also, KU coach Bill Self on Sunday had an in-home visit with Terrence Jones, a 6-8 senior from Portland’s Jefferson High. He has a list of KU, UCLA, Washington, Florida, Kentucky and Arizona. [Note -- Oklahoma is also on his list]
Harris also plans to visit Louisville and Kentucky, leaving two other officials for the rest of his list.
