Maryland leads pack in Under Armour All-America selections
Maryland fell just short of capturing the national championship, but the Terps will reload with one of the top recruiting classes in the nation.
The Under Armour All-America list was announced on May 26, and Maryland leads all Division I schools with seven players on that list.
Representing the Terps on July 2 at 8 p.m. at Towson University’s Johnny Unitas Stadium will be three attackmen in Jay Carlson (St. Paul’s), Kevin Forster and David Solomon, two midfielders in Bobby Gribbin (who reportedly has switched his commitment from Penn State) and Joe LoCascio, and two defensemen in Goran Murray and Eric Parnon.
Johns Hopkins has four commits in attackmen Wells Stanwick (Boys’ Latin) and Mike Daniello and defensemen John Kelly and Michael Pellegrino.
Navy will be represented by attackman Patrick Kenna and goalkeeper John Connors, while Loyola has a selection in midfielder Jeff Chase (Boys’ Latin).
Virginia – which beat Maryland for the 2011 NCAA crown on Memorial Day – Syracuse, and North Carolina each have five players on the list. A pair of local products in attackman Taylor Michel (St. Paul’s) and midfielder Ryan Tucker (Gilman) will play for the national champion Cavaliers.
Harvard will be represented by four players, Duke by three, and Notre Dame by two. One of the Fighting Irish’s commits is attackman Conor Doyle (Gilman). Defenseman Bryson Greene (McDonogh) will represent Georgetown.
