Weekend wrap — Six scores for Burns

Devin Burns saved one of his best offensive performances of the year for Carver (Ga.) High’s regular-season finale.

The Maryland quarterback commitment threw for five touchdown passes and rushed for a three-yard score in the Tigers’ 48-15 win over Northside.

Burns, who sat out the second quarter as Tiger reserves played, came back with pinpoint passing as he hit three different receivers for scores in the second half and ran for another.

• UM tight end recruit Nermin Delic made big plays on offense and defense in Northwest Whitfield’s 43-33 win over Paulding County (Ga.).

The Bruins seemed to be in control when Delic blocked a punt midway through the second quarter, setting up his own 21-yard touchdown catch from Chad Keeter two plays later for a 22-12 lead with 4:09 left in the half — but as it turned out, they still had plenty of work to do.

• Terps fullback commitment Rahsaan Moore found the end zone once in Wise’s 14-12 loss to C.H. Flowers.

Down 12-6 after a fumbled snap on a punt set up Wise's Rahsaan Moore for a three-yard touchdown run, C.H. Flowers embarked on a 17-play drive that began with just more than three minutes remaining in the third quarter and ended with Jaguars senior Reginald Woods scampering into the end zone with 6 1/2 minutes remaining.

• Maryland athlete pledge Matt Robinson caught one pass for five yards and led Atholton with seven tackles as the Raiders beat Glenelg, 14-13.

After a short pass play to midfield, [Glenelg quarterback Gage] Trawick spiked the ball and then tossed a pass intended for Shane Kellaher at the goal line that was broken up by Matt Robinson as the clock expired.

• Terps defensive end recruit Ian Evans’ Hammonton (N.J.) squad fell to undefeated Egg Harbor, 23-19.

Hammonton needed a big play, and after it took over on its 15, [Nick] Crescenzo hit Ian Evans for a 31-yard gain. Eight plays later, Josh Baez went 1 yard for a touchdown with 10:33 left in the game. The extra point sailed wide left, and Hammonton trailed, 23-19.

• UM quarterback commitment Tyler Smith threw for three touchdown passes in the first half of Wilson Area (Pa.) High’s 41-0 rout of Notre Dame-Green Pond.

Basketball recruiting

• A decision from Miller School (Va.) center Hippolyte Tsafack could come soon.

Memphis should hear something this week regarding 6-8 forward Hippolyte Tsafack, who visited Memphis last month and is deciding between the Tigers and Maryland.

• Testudo Times took a look at the Twitter page of Ashton Pankey, the St. Anthony (N.J.) power forward who visited College Park over the weekend.

• Visits to Maryland and Georgia Tech are next on Tobias Harris’ itinerary after the five-star prospect checked out West Virginia this weekend.

“They’re losing Da’Sean Butler and they might lose Devin Ebanks so [Bob Huggins] wants me to come in and play the roles they’re playing. It sounds good,” Harris said.

C.J. Leslie’s mother told Adam Zagoria that her son “probably won’t sign until the spring.”

Leslie had in-home visits with Kentucky, Maryland, Seton Hall, Arizona State, Georgetown, N.C. State, Georgia Tech, Florida International and Oregon.
