Crab Bowl, City-St. Frances on tap for Saturday

It'll be a busy Saturday for many local sports fans and one Baltimore Sun recruiting blogger.

The third annual Maryland Crab Bowl football all-star game is set to kick off at noon at Bowie State. Seven hours later, two of Baltimore’s best high school basketball teams will battle.

The Crab Bowl is once again loaded with Division I talent. The Baltimore roster features Calvert Hall safety Adrian Amos (UConn), Boys’ Latin defensive end Marco Jones (Virginia) and Gilman offensive lineman Hunter Goodwin (Wake Forest). Washington’s roster includes new Maryland commitment Alex Twine, a linebacker from Quince Orchard.

At 7 p.m. at St. Frances, the No. 2 Panthers host No. 1 City in the most highly anticipated matchup of this young basketball season. The Knights are led by Maryland-bound shooting guard Nick Faust, in addition to a strong supporting cast that includes guard Mike Cheatham and power forward Charles Tapper – both Division I prospects.

Senior center Greg Lewis, who has signed with Rutgers, had a monster game last Friday in St. Frances’ big win over Digital Harbor. Senior point guard R.J. Williams and senior wing Eddie Tarver are two savvy veterans that also starred against the Rams last week, and will be counted on to do the same against City.

Check back with Recruiting Report on Saturday for more on the Crab Bowl, and for Glenn Graham’s game story on City-St. Frances.
