Weekly recruiting roundup
Earlier this month Maryland lost Boyd Anderson (Fla.) linebacker commitment Shaun Ward to Texas A&M. On Thursday, the Terps lost another recruit from the Sunshine State.
[Ramsey] has committed to Wake Forest after decommitting from Maryland, according to ESPN Recruiting. Florida State, Minnesota and Rutgers have also offered. Wake Forest now has eight commitments.
Meanwhile, cornerback Blake Countess, a four-star prospect from Owings Mill, Md., visited [Georgia] Tech earlier this week. The Jackets are expected to be in a battle with Maryland and Virginia for Countess.
• Terps targets Travis Hughes, a linebacker from Kempsville (Va.), and Demetrious Nicholson, a defensive back from Bayside (Va.), were picked to compete in the Champion Gridiron Kings event in Florida.
Nicholson has 15 offers from Boston College, Clemson, Connecticut, Duke, East Carolina, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Rutgers, Stanford, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
Hughes' father, Tony, spoke to Rivals.com this week about Travis' recruitment.
“In the second week of August we’re going to Clemson on the 14th for two days,” he said. “We’d like to get back up to Tech and back to Maryland of course. Virginia and North Carolina may slide in there with visits as well.
Bello has been working hard to improve his ball handling and it shows. He gets to the rim almost at will and has been concentrating more on making the right play than trying to make the highlight play. He's getting stronger and was good for a nice outing on Thursday. He listed Baylor, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Duke, Clemson, Wake Forest and Florida State.
Anderson said that Maryland (offer), Duke, North Carolina, Oklahoma (offer), and Texas (offer) are the primary ones recruiting him. In addition, he noted that Villanova, Kentucky, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Virginia are involved.
