DBR Recruiting Update - 12/05/2008

The Terps are quite active on the trail for top talent in the class of 2010, and they’re also quietly working on the class of 2011 and 2012 but for today here’s an update on the class of 2010:

Pe'Shon Howard was at UMD for a two day unofficial visit last week. Howard is a 6-2 junior combo guard, who plays for Oak Hill Academy. He is said to be a "Big Ten" type guard, strong, physical, and tough, with pretty good skills, has played both PG and 2G. He is definitely a person of interest to UMD, particularly if the Terps miss out on Isaiah Epps.

Also in for an unofficial visit recently was 6-8, 230 lb insider Hippolyte Tsafack, a junior from Cameroon, who currently plays for the Miller School near Charlottesville, VA.

Terps have offered a ‘ship to SF Mychal Parker, a native of North Carolina. Parker has offers from Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Clemson to name a few, and is also being looked at by Florida and Miami. Word is that he’s a smooth, athletic, scoring machine from the "3" spot.

Great to see the Terps are working these kids...staying in touch...inviting them for unofficials in the 2010 class, and covering all their bases. Though only three ships currently are available, it appears the Terps are preparing for the possibly of needing to bring in 4 players in this class. With the guys mentioned above, plus Epps, Taran Buie, Barton, Regan (who scored 23 points in 17 minutes in his season opener) Victor Oladipo, and (IMHO) long shots Roscoe Smith and Tobias Harris; the Terps have a very good list to work from.

I mentioned in the Michigan game thread that Oladipo was at the game. He was in the locker room following the game being chatted up by Gary and staff and word is he enjoyed himself on his visit.

I had hoped to make it to Taran Buie’s season opener tonight but that is now looking like a long shot for me, perhaps I’ll be able to attend the Tuesday night game and give my first hand evaluation following that.
