Weekend wrap – Carr's stock keeps rising

It's early in the AAU season, but so far Patterson freshman Aquille Carr has picked up right where he left off this winter.

The 5-foot-6 point guard has followed up an All-Metro season with standout play for Nike Baltimore Elite's 17-and-under squad. picked Carr as one of the most impressive players at this weekend's Baltimore Elite Invitational at Hoop Magic in Chantilly, Va.

He is lightning quick, has outstanding handles, and can flat out score the basketball. What makes Aquille special is the way he gets in the gaps and finishes at the rim. He's got outstanding body control and is a terrific finisher. Think a cross between Allen Iverson and Louis Williams.

• Testudo Times took a look Saturday at two potential center targets for the Terps from the junior college ranks.

The first is Berend Weijs. ... Weijs is originally from the Netherlands and plays for Harcum CC just outside of Bryn Mawr. If you're interested, he has a Dutch. Weijs has been to Longwood and has an offer from the Lancers. He visited Maryland in late April and claims an offer from the Terps, along with interest from a handful of other mid-majors.

• The New York Post checked in Friday with Brooklyn (N.Y.) Lincoln defensive end Ishaq Williams, a Maryland target with 25 BCS-level scholarship offers.

The 17-year-old from Clinton Hill speaks to several assistant coaches per day. Thursday afternoon, he had a Skype video conference with Alabama coach Nick Saban. He has taken unofficial visits with his father, Shaun, to Syracuse, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Miami and Maryland, meeting each school’s head coach.

• updated the recruitment of Seton Hall Prep (N.J.) linebacker Connor Wujciak late last week.

To this point Wujciak has visited Maryland, Rutgers, Boston College and Pittsburgh. He said he will definitely take some more visits. Wujciak wants to have his decision made before his senior season, though he doesn’t know if that will be possible. That means he should be on the road a little bit this summer.
