Weekly recruiting roundup
The Maryland men's basketball program is reportedly hosting a four-star prospect this weekend.
Forward Antwan Space (DeSoto, Texas/ DeSoto) showed why he has turned heads on the recruiting trail this summer. He is a long, active athlete who excels in transition. Arkansas is in strong position for his services as he said he "loves the Hogs."
The Canes are joined by LSU, Maryland, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, and Alabama.
Calling it the college "that will allow me to be successful in life and on the basketball court," he chose the Hokies over Florida and hometown Old Dominion.
DeMatha will be missing running back Delonte Morton for the third consecutive game with a sprained ankle, but, with the exception of the 35-10 loss to Gilman, the Stags have been able to move the ball. DeMatha has scored at least 35 points in each of its victories.
Virginia scores an official visit despite not being in Hughes’ top five prior to the start of the 2010 season. Hughes has spoken highly of the UVa staff, however, and has been impressed with the way the team looks so far this season. He currently claims no favorites, though UNC led for several months, Maryland is where his bother, Trenton, plays and he had a great trip to VT in September. Obviously, UVa is hoping Travis follows through and makes all five officials.
• Terrapin Station caught up this week with Maryland defensive back target Steven Montgomery.
Last season, the three-star recruit played mostly at safety, but this season his role has been at cornerback. The Maryland coaches have said they want him to play a variety of positions, similar to the role [Desmond] Kearse currently plays for the Terps. “They said they want to move me all over the field,” Montgomery said. “Some corner, some safety, sometimes in the box to blitz the quarterback, a little bit of a lot of different positions.”
