Maryland's newest basketball recruit has been on a tear since he made his commitment.
Melo Trimble has averaged 29 points in three games for Bishop O'Connell since he pledged to the Terps last week. In an 83-75 win over St. John's (D.C.) this week, Trimble scored 33 points. Check out video highlights from the game, courtesy of Capitol Hoops, below.
** Roddy Peters has played his last high school game. In Suitland's 75-66 loss to Eleanor Roosevelt, the Maryland-bound combo guard, who will undergo shoulder surgery today, scored 24 points. The Washington Post was on hand to recap the action.
Afterward, Peters already had his brace ripped off by the time he had made it through the postgame handshake line and soon after he wrapped [Suitland coach George] McClure in a hug. He closes the season scoring 21.3 points per game, slightly behind his average from last season when he led the Rams within a victory of the state tournament.
Rashad Vaughn scored 51 points, but it still wasn't enough to lift Cooper as the Hawks lost to Maranatha Christian in overtime on Tuesday.
University of Maryland-bound Brionna Jones scored 24 points and pulled down her 1,000th rebound at the 7:40 mark in the fourth quarter as visiting top-ranked Aberdeen (3-0) downed Elkton, 66-28, in girls basketball Monday.
Maryland recruit Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 32 points for the top-ranked Vikings (4-1, 1-1).
** Several future Terps will play in the Maryland Crab Bowl at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Prince George's County Sports and Learning Complex in Landover. Check out the rosters for the Baltimore and Washington teams here:
** Maryland announced the signings Wednesday of junior college wide receiver Deon Long and JUCO offensive lineman Silvano Altamirano.
Altamirano, a 6-foot-3, 290-pound linemen, spent two seasons at San Diego Mesa College, earning first-team All-Southern California Football Association honors this fall.
“I am very happy to have Silvano come in and be part of our offensive line at the University of Maryland,” Edsall said. “He has the explosiveness, speed, pulling ability and toughness that we want from our offensive linemen.”
The 6-3, 220-pound Houston was rated as the No. 55 recruit nationally at outside linebacker in the Class of 2011 and signed with Maryland.
During his year at Fork Union, [John] Shuman moved him to safety and was very impressive, according to the veteran coach.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
