Weekend wrap – Terps offer 2012 center

Maryland's search for a post player in the 2012 class has expanded to the West Coast.'s Josh Gershon reported this weekend that the Terps have offered Robert Upshaw, a 6-foot-11, 240-pound center from Fresno, Calif.

A four-star prospect and's No. 15 center, Upshaw reportedly claims offers from Arizona, Arizona State, LSU, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA, USC and Utah, among others.

SLAM's Jamie Palmer offered a scouting report on Upshaw from the Real Deal in the Rock event last weekend.

In his match up against CBC (Andre Drummond), he showed tremendous ability to use all of his length to block shots and rebound where he recorded 11 blocks and 12 rebounds on my count. He is a back to the basket big who has great feel and finishes with authority around the basket where he is at best.

Check out a couple highlights of Upshaw starting at 1:28 in the video below.

Phil Kornblut reported last week that Jared Guest -- a 6-foot-8 forward from Charis (N.C.) Prep who has drawn interest from Maryland -- has two schools at the top of his list.

Guest said he can play SG or small forward. He averaged 15 points and eight rebounds per game last season. Guest said VCU and Georgia are his top two.
