• Testudo Times wrote today that Maryland might be out of the mix for Oakland, Calif., shooting guard Jabari Brown.
The current seven are UConn, Cal, DePaul, Georgia Tech, Oregon, St. John's, and Washington.
The 6-foot-8 small forward from Jamaica, Queens, who initially committed to Connecticut, is organizing his visits, such as the official he will take to Maryland on Sept. 2 and the unofficial to St. John’s on Sept. 18.
• NBADraft.net scouted the adidas Nations event in Chicago, offering reports on each participant, including Terps shooting guard target Deuce Bello.
Bello is one of the freakiest players on the high school level right now. He's shown some surprising skill development this summer with improvement in his handle and play making. He's an undersized shooting guard but his length and leaping ability gives him some real intrigue.
• ACCSports.com answered four questions facing the Maryland football team, including whether the Terps will lose recruits if the team stumbles early.
Defensive back Jeremiah Hendy is one of Maryland’s top early commitments. The Bowie High standout chose the Terps over the Cavaliers in a very close battle, citing his parents’ preference that he stay near home. Hendy, though, has kept his recruitment open and remains in contact with Virginia, even taking an unofficial visit to Charlottesville in late June.
