Weekend wrap – Ross dominates again

The Charter School of Wilmington (Del.) moved to 4-0 this weekend, thanks in large part to an offensive explosion by Brandon Ross.

The Maryland-bound running back scored four touchdowns and racked up 325 all-purpose yards in the Force's 26-21 win over A.I. du Pont on Saturday.

"On the outside, I had great blocking from my receivers," Ross said. "They threw great crack blocks, and I cannot do what I did tonight without my blocking. They made it possible for me to break free."

• UM tight end recruit Ryan Malleck had a solid performance in Point Pleasant Boro's 49-24 loss to Wall (N.J.).

For Point Boro, quarterback Steven Krohn threw for 220 yards, 81 of which went to University of Maryland recruit Ryan Malleck.

• Maryland defensive back recruit Jeremiah Hendy made an impact on the offensive side of the ball in Bowie's 21-7 loss to Suitland.

Jeremiah Hendy caught five passes for 31 yards, while Derek Goode caught five passes for 47 yards.

• Terps linebacker pledge Cole Farrand led his Pope John squad to a 42-14 victory over Vernon (N.J.).

"Cole (Farrand) pretty much ripped us apart at halftime,'' said running back Matt Pepe, who ran for three second-half scores. "He told us we lose everything if we lose this game. He fired us up. And we came out and played Pope John football.''

• Maryland has picked up a commitment from Island Coast (Fla.) defensive end Jimmy Stewart, according to Check back with Recruiting Report tomorrow for more on Stewart's decision.

Basketball recruiting

• The Lawrence (Kan.) Journal-World reports that DeMatha power forward Mikael Hopkins, who sports a Maryland offer, visited Kansas this weekend.

Hopkins is on campus on his official recruiting visit. He has visited Ohio State officially and Georgetown unofficially and has trips planned to Miami (Fla.), West Virginia and Texas. He will announce his college choice on Nov. 1.
