Atholton athlete Matt Robinson and St. John’s (D.C.) defensive tackle Andre Monroe are suiting up for the Baltimore team, while Archbishop Carroll (D.C.) lineman Nate Clarke, Wise defensive end / fullback Rahsaan Moore and Wise safety Titus Till will play for the Washington squad.
Check back with Recruiting Report on Saturday for more on the game.
• Robinson and Monroe were Washington Post All-Met first-team defense selections.
• Three Terps commitments made The Gazette’s Prince George’s County first-team defense: Till, Moore and Suitland defensive back Jeremiah Johnson.
A solid contributor on both sides of the ball, the senior University of Maryland recruit had 99 tackles and four interceptions.
The 6-foot-7 receiver caught 48 passes for 789 yards and 11 touchdowns and was selected to the Under Armour All-Star game in Orlando, Fla.
“I just like wrapping around and hitting people,” Conaboy said. “I get to use some athleticism.”
Johnson, a likely all-state selection, considered several FBS schools — including Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Boston College, North Carolina State, Wake Forest and Rutgers — before opting for Pitt.
We know other schools are trying to see what his status is. Maryland, to its credit, has been present at his games and is doing all it can to solidify the pledge. Ross did not wish to talk about his recruiting at the National Hoops Festival only saying that he remains committed.
• Adam Zagoria reports that Maryland has expressed interest in point guard Jio Fontan, a transfer from Fordham.
Todd Washington, an advisor to Fontan, said the Maryland staff reached out about the 6-foot-1 Fontan, who received a conditional release from Fordham that prevents him from playing in the Atlantic 10 or the tri-state area.
Sanford's Trevor Cooney, a 6-foot-4 guard, is one of the top junior prospects in the country. Programs that have offered him scholarships include Maryland, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Villanova.
Natasha Cloud's 16 points helped Cardinal O'Hara to a 56-24 win over visiting West Catholic.
