Weekend wrap — Howard's pledge
Less than a week after Montrose Christian shooting guard Terrence Ross reopened his recruitment, the Maryland staff added a different guard prospect to its 2010 recruiting class.
Oak Hill (Va.) Academy combo guard Pe'Shon Howard committed to the Terps on Saturday, picking UM over offers from Georgia Tech, Northwestern, South Florida, UCLA and Virginia.
Paul Biancardi, ESPN.com's national recruiting director, wrote that "the addition of Howard to an already strong class will make the Terps deeper and better."
"Offensively he's a two guard with some point guard abilities but he'll need to make better decisions with the ball," he offered. "On the defensive side, Pe'Shon can guard a one or a two and he's adept at anticipating passes and gambling for steals. At the next level he'll need to be more careful in these situations as players are quicker with the ball."
