TTDave's Inside the Shell

Welcome to our next edition of Inside the Shell, the weekly Maryland football recruiting roundup.

Welcome to our next edition of Inside the Shell, the weekly Maryland football recruiting roundup.

Last week we delved into several positions and where the Terps stand with offensive line, quarterback, running back, safety and cornerback targets. This week, I wanted to touch on the defensive line, linebackers and receivers, in addition to other random recruiting notes.

The Linebacker Situation

Maryland will probably take a couple linebackers in this class, and while the Terps are firmly in play for several, it doesn't seem like anyone is an imminent commitment at this point.

McDonogh (Owings Mills, Md.) MIKE Wyatt Cook, who now holds verbals from UMD, Virginia and Old Dominion, remains the best bet, and he continued to talk up the Terps last week. Cook just added the Wahoos offer after visiting Charlottesville, and said he liked head coach Mike London and called the school "pretty awesome."

But in the same interview, Cook reiterated that he "loved Maryland," liked the idea of representing his home state, and doesn't want to burden his family with having to travel far for games.

Between UMD and UVA, the edge probably goes to the Terps at this point. But Penn State could be a problem should it offer. Cook is visiting State College, Pa., this weekend and has said the Nittany Lions are considering extending a scholarship. If they follow through, Terps assistant Keith Dudzinski and Co. will have to do battle with James Franklin to keep the cook in the kitchen.

Cook is also visiting Virginia Tech March 27 and could pick up a Hokies offer, but we don't see the McDonogh backer ending up in Blacksburg unless there's a change of heart.

You can read what Cook had to say recently HERE.

Another linebacker Maryland is pursuing, Red Bank Catholic's (Red Bank, N.J.) Jamie Gordinier, has the Terps in mind, but has numerous suitors to consider. His list currently includes his latest scholarship, Michigan State, plus UMD, Northwestern, Connecticut, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Miami, Duke, UVA, Temple and West Virginia, in addition to a couple others. Gordinier told me he's heading to Miami March 27, Northwestern April 2-4, Maryland April 9, and also Rutgers and Virginia at later dates.

The Jersey backer was thrilled with his Terps offer back in February, and he seemed intrigued enough to at least give the program a look. Unless something comes up, I do expect him to follow through with that campus visit in April and continue building a relationship with UMD. He likes how the Terps are recruiting him as a MIKE, and also has a bond with Keith Dudzinski, so his interest appears genuine.

But I'm also not so sure College Park will be his landing spot. I think the Terps have a legitimate shot here, but Gordinier insisted he has no leaders and will give many suitors a long look. Northwestern, with its academics, seems to be in a good position; Miami is firmly in the game due to Gordinier's family connections and the Canes' coaching staff; and Rutgers is a hometown favorite.

You can read what he had to say HERE.

Another New Jersey linebacker, Joe Giles-Harris (St. Joseph's/Montvale, N.J.), is in the same boat as Gordinier: He's open and taking everything in. We reported on Giles-Harris' Maryland trip in mid-March, and he had plenty of praise for the staff, the school, etc. Maryland also has an "in" with Giles-Harris given its location and the fact he has family nearby, so we do like the Terps' position early on.

But Giles-Harris has numerous other trips to make, and on top of that he continues to add intriguing offers. He's visited Duke and Rutgers already, and Syracuse, Illinois and others all figure to get a look. We'll know more where he stands in a couple months once he's completed his initial college tour.

The Terps remain somewhat involved with Dominion (Sterling, Va.) linebacker Chad Smith, but we're not so sure they make his upcoming top three, which he'll release shortly. Clemson is in a strong position following his visit there, and Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech are firmly in the game as well. Wisconsin just offered a couple weeks back, and Smith had high praise for the Badgers too.

A telltale sign: Some reporters have asked Smith about the programs he's generally considering, and he didn't have much to say about Maryland.

Tremaine Edmunds (Dan River/Ringgold, Va.), a Virginia Tech legacy the Terps have offered, said he'll be visiting Wake Forest March 29. After that he has no definite plans and isn't sure he'll make it up to College Park or not. Regardless, this one's going to be a tough get out of Virginia. Edmunds will likely end up a Hokie like his two older brothers, or perhaps a Tar Heel as he's visited North Carolina and was highly impressed.

Maryland has also extended offers to the likes of Darrin Kirkland (Lawrence Central/Indianapolis, Ind.), Josh Barajas (Andrean/Merillville, Ind.), Manny Bowen (Barnegat, N.J.), Ricky DeBerry (St. Christopher's/Richmond, Va.), Jeffrey Holland (Trinity Christian/Jacksonville, Fla.) and D'Vonta Hinton (Texas City/Texas). But just perusing through interviews with these guys, there isn't too much UMD interest.

Kirkland said at one point he might visit College Park, but he's likely Ohio State bound. Hinton mentioned he could get up to Maryland as well, and we are keeping him on the hot board for now, but he's also looking for major Big 12 programs to get involved.

There are a couple other linebackers UMD is monitoring, but they need to impress at camp to secure scholarships. Local product Eric Assoua (St. John's/Washington, D.C.) holds offers from Rutgers, Western Michigan and Toledo and just visited Penn State, with a trip to RU coming March 29. (I don't foresee the Nittany Lions making a push, but if they did he'd likely end up there.)

Assoua has been to Maryland a couple times and has good interest in the program given his relationship with the coaches, its proximity to his home, and the fact former teammate William Ulmer just signed with UMD. But Assoua is going to have shine at camp and perhaps show standout senior film to secure a hometown offer. He's making the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker, so Maryland probably wants to see how that goes before pouncing.

Another D.C. product who we've mentioned previously is he of Twitter fame, Wilson's Kareem McDonald. While he's not a bad prospect, McDonald, who holds a Toledo offer, tends to hype things a bit. He has the Terps under heavy consideration and would undoubtedly jump at a UMD offer, but I'm not so sure the interest is mutual.

McDonald visited Temple a couple weeks ago and is taking in ODU this week, and that may be more his level right now. Of course, he's also considering reclassifying to the 2016 class in order to develop his game and perhaps boost his profile. Maybe if McDonald does so, coming back stronger and faster next year, the Terps will get involved. But for now he's going to have to impress at camp to get a longer look from FCS schools like UMD.

Down in Ashburn, Va., at Briar Woods, linebacker Dominic Moore said he's maintained contact with the Terps' staff. He's been on campus and likes the idea of playing in College Park, but Moore's still searching for his first offer. Like McDonald and Assoua, he needs a standout camp to go along with impressive senior film to secure a scholarship from top-level programs.

Massaponax (Fredericksburg, Va.) backer Gus Little is in a similar situation to Moore. Little attended a Terps junior day and drew plenty of attention from the staff, but he's secured lower-level Division-I offers so far and will need to camp to secure a UMD scholarship.

There are a few other linebacker recruits the Terps are monitoring in New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Virginia and New Jersey, and several of them will undoubtedly attend one-days at Maryland this June. But rather than list all the hopefuls, we'll wait to see if they do indeed camp and gain more UMD interest.

The Defensive Line Situation

Adam McLean (Quince Orchard/Gaithersburg, Md.) picked up offers from Indiana and Miami recently, and he's now somewhere in the mid-30s in terms of scholarships. Again, this kid seems to have his sights set on the Alabamas, Floridas, Penn States, Michigan States and Ohio States of the world. He's visited Maryland and given the Terps their due, but we just don't see this one ending favorably for UMD. McLean said he'll be announcing his choice Aug. 26, and the early forecast has him pegged at a "name" program.

Up north, UMD offeree Austrian Robinson (Trinity-Pawling/Pawling, N.J.) just visited Boston College and came away impressed. He has also taken in Rutgers, his other offer at this time, and is planning on seeing College Park at some point in the next few weeks. Robinson may be able to make the Terps' spring game April 11, but didn't want to give a definite "yes" or "no" yet.

At this point, Maryland and Rutgers look to be his two best options, with neither holding an edge right now. Robinson doesn't want to make a decision until after the fall, however, and we won't know exactly where he stands in the recruiting process until later this offseason.

Speaking of spring game visitors, Peddle School (Highstown, N.J.) defensive lineman David Ryslik is still planning to make the trip to College Park. Ryslik currently holds Duke and Temple verbals, but said the Terps -- along with UVA, WVU, Georgia Tech, Boston College and others -- are intrigued. Ryslik indicated that UMD recruiter John Dunn has maintained contact with him and an offer could be coming after he treks to Maryland.

Ryslik likes the fact UMD is close to D.C. and is shifting to the Big Ten, but he wouldn't call them one of his favorite schools at this time. In fact, Ryslik said he's nowhere close to choosing leaders or standouts and doesn't want to decide on a college before the winter. Of course, he'll need to secure that UMD before it can even be considered; we'll know more where he stands following the spring game.

A little farther north, up in Canada, Neville Gallimore (Canada Prep/Ontario) finally seems to have slowed down a bit with the offer influx. He now holds the likes of UCLA, Nevada, Maryland, USF, Wake Forest, Rice, Mississippi State, Minnesota, TCU and California, with those two Cali schools being of particular intrigue. Expect Gallimore to give both the Bears and Bruins a long, hard look when he visits this summer.

As for Maryland, he hasn't set up a trip yet but we still think he'll check the school out. Recall, UMD was Gallimore's fist offer, which he appreciated, and he's maintained a relationship with Keith Dudzinski. Gallimore said he's open to all suitors, and currently we feel the Terps are at least in the game.

Down in Virginia, Hopewell (Va.) defensive end Darrell Taylor has offers from UMD, Illinois, Iowa, UVA, Va Tech, North Carolina and Purdue, among others. He has gone mum on his recruitment, though he was supposedly in College Park for a visit March 25. Taylor has also taken in Virginia Tech and Virginia, and when I last spoke with him he seemed like a kid who wanted to stay in-state for college.

Currently, we're inclined to believe he'll end up a Hokie or Cavalier, but it's still early for him. There are numerous other programs bound to be involved, and current offerees such as UNC, Iowa and Illinois should secure visits as well. We'll see how much clout the Terps and new assistant Chad Wilt have if Maryland can get Taylor back in College Park for an official visit later on.

Out in Ohio, Pickerington Central (Pickerington, Ohio) tackle DaVon Hamilton said he's had some Maryland contact. He's currently at the MAC level but plans to camp at UMD to see if he can pick up an offer. We'll see if he follows through makes it down to the school while gaining more Terps in interest in the process.

Locally, a pair of Montgomery County recruits, Darius Fullwood (Good Counsel/Olney, Md.) and Jonathan Holland (Bullis/Potomac, Md.), still do not hold Terps verbals.

Fullwood was just at Penn State and it wouldn't surprise us if he ended up a Nittany Lion. He's also high on Ohio State, Georgia Tech, Miami and a few other programs not named Maryland. At this point, if UMD does decide it wants him, it would have to make up major ground. Now, the Good Counsel end does like College Park and said the Terps were his favorite team growing up, but that may not be enough to keep him home as a high school senior.

As for Holland, he just picked up an N.C. State offer and now has scholarships from the Pack, Illinois, Penn State, Pitt, West Virginia, Boston College, Wake Forest and Purdue, among others. He has visited Pitt, Wake, BC and PSU and will visit Indiana April 4, but has no current plans to see Maryland. We're not sure the Terps will make a push here, and the feeling here is he'll end up at Pitt, PSU (if the offer's legit) or maybe Wake Forest.

Over in Howard County, at Long Reach (Columbia, Md.), I removed defensive end Ron'Dell Carter from the hot board. He told me this recently: "From the looks of things, I doubt Maryland is going to look at me again. Right now my main focus is Rutgers this weekend and ODU April 5." So … that's that.

South of College Park, at Bishop O'Connell (Arlington, Va.), defensive end Channing Hames has early offers from BC, UVA, UConn, WVU and ODU, with the Terps keeping tabs. Hames has been in College Park and had praise for the program, but currently we're not sensing a Maryland push. We'll see what happens in the next couple months.

More D-line News

If the Terps don't get their guys at the high school level, there are numerous junior college defensive lineman UMD is pursuing. Out in California, Deonte Reynolds (Contra Costa/San Pablo, Calif) and Anthony Fotu (Laney/Oakland, Calif.) both claim offers and said it's conceivable they could officially visit College Park this summer.

You can read what Reynolds had to say HERE and what Fotu's coach had to say HERE (I have an article with Fotu himself set to come out shortly).

Reynolds, who also holds verbals from Boise State and Arizona State, was more lukewarm about the Terps, but Fotu seemed genuinely interested. The Tongan native wants to get away from home and said a cross-country trip would be up his alley. But it's still very early in the process for Fotu, whose brother, Joe, signed with Illinois last year. We'll see if he actually does follow through with said visit.

Down south, Quincy Vasser (Navarro/Corsciana, Texas) claimed a UMD offer and is still considering a visit, as is Ulric Jones (Butler C.C./Butler County, Kans.). But Vasser, while appreciative of Maryland's pursuit, seemed less than enthused about the school, while Jones is pining for SEC offers. We don't project either to end up Terps at this time.

Texas Two-Step (Three Step?)

While the Terps are involved with numerous Lone Star State prospects thanks to new assistant Keenan McCardell's efforts, the players they seem in best position to land include offensive guard Mbi Tanyi (George Bush/Houston, Texas) and safety Jameel Cook (Ridge Point/Missouri City, Texas), in addition to Cook's stepbrother and teammate, running back Remus Bulmer (if UMD pursues).

They are also involved with the likes of running back Tristian Houston (North Shore/Houston, Texas), linebacker D'Vonta Hinton (Texas City, Texas), receiver J.F. Thomas (South Oak Cliff/Dallas, Texas), safety Prentice McKinney (South Oak Cliff), cornerback Holton Hill (Lamar/Houston) and receiver Kemah Siverand (Cypress Ridge/Houston) -- quarterback Josh Rosen (UCLA) and safety Jamile Johnson (Oklahoma) have already committed elsewhere -- but we don't see them ending up in College Park.

The two-way lineman Tanyi, who said he's mainly being recruited for offense, is planning to visit Maryland for the first time for the spring game April 11. Tanyi doesn't have any other FCS offers and continues to speak highly of UMD and McCardell. I'm not sure he'll commit while on campus, but the Terps are in solid position here and could conceivably secure a summer pop.

It's still too early to make a definitive call on Cook, however. He said in a recent interview that Maryland is his top suitor over the likes of Colorado and Missouri, but he came off as the type of kid who would probably have told a Mizzou writer the Tigers were his current No. 1 option.

That said, the Terps could drastically improve their position with the 6-foot, 190-pound converted linebacker if they offered his stepbrother Bulmer. Cook said the two are best friends and are intent on playing their college ball with one another. He went on to note that McCardell has been in touch with Bulmer as well, and the two have discussed trekking up to College Park as a potential package deal.

Of course, we've heard this "package deal" hullaballoo before, and more often than not it never comes to fruition. While Cook is excited to visit Maryland in June or July, he sounded equally pumped about potential landing offers from major Big 12 and SEC programs that have been monitoring him. If a Florida, Florida State, Texas A&M or Texas gets involved, Cook may just say the heck with the package deal. We'll see what Cook is thinking after his full complement of scholarships is realized.

As for Bulmer, he's not a bad looking recruit at 5-9, 190 pounds and with good speed, but there are similar backs of equal or greater talent out there. If Maryland really wants Cook, sure, go ahead and offer his stepbrother, but Bulmer probably isn't quite good enough to get a Terps look on his own.

You can read what Cook had to say about the situation HERE.

The Receiver Situation

Right now, it's looking like Jabari Greenwood (Gonzaga/Washington, D.C.) is the main target. OK, so there will be other names that emerge following the evaluation period, but right now the only realistic UMD option with an offer is the long, sure-handed Zaga wideout.

Greenwood has been busy lately and has been fairly mum about his recruitment, but he reportedly took recent visits were to NC State, Wake Forest, UNC, Vanderbilt and Tennessee. He has Rutgers, UVA, Pitt and Michigan State trips on the radar as well.

While Greenwood has lauded pretty much every program he's seen, which is his tendency, UMD is right in the game and among his top suitors. He was last in College Park for the Terps-UVA hoops game in February and came away raving. Greenwood has a very good rapport with his recruiter, Mike Locksley, and likes the idea of playing for new receivers coach Keenan McCardell. Expect Greenwood to be back in College Park this summer and to continue building a relationship with the local school.

At the same time, some of these other visits are bound to leave an impression on him, so Randy Edsall, Locksley and Co. must work the "represent your state" and "learn from an NFL standout" angles to keep him home.

Maryland's other top receiver target, Briar Woods' (Ashburn, Va.) Brandon Polk, just went off the board to Penn State. Recall, Polk recently released a top five and hinted the Terps were in his top three, but PSU, followed by Stanford, were long considered the favorites. Polk's former teammate who is now in State College, Trace McSorely, was in his ear, and the Briar Woods receiver ate up James Franklin's message after visiting.

While UMD can probably identify another wideout of comparable talent, it's disappointing another prime target from northern Virginia opted to attend school elsewhere. Maryland needs to make a breakthrough in both NoVa and the 757, and we're not talking about under-the-radar guys that won't necessarily resonate with the area's other prospects (no, Daniel Ezeagwu doesn't count).

Maryland did just offer a big-time Texas receiver, Kemah Siverand (Cyrpress Ridge/Houston, Texas), but he seems focused on the in-state programs according to recent interviews.

One potential local Terps offeree, Myles Robinson (Good Counsel/Olney, Md.), was actually just in State College last weekend with a contingent of other Marylanders. I don't expect Robinson to pull that offer with Polk on board, but he's certainly a talent. Robinson holds verbals from Michigan State and Virginia, and he's said the Terps are keeping tabs. Maryland might want Robinson to camp before extending a scholarship, but it's conceivable he could land an offer if he visits the school again. While a UMD verbal wouldn't exactly be a game changer for him, Robinson has spoken highly of the program and has been on campus a couple times. And with Locksley recruiting him, Maryland would be in solid position for Robinson's services should it pull the trigger.

Over in Delaware, Dupont (Wilmington, Del.) wideout Quadree Henderson (he's also getting running back looks) remains Terps offer-less. The speedy slot holds verbals from Clemson, Rutgers, WVU, Nebraska and Boston College, and at this point it doesn't look like he's inclined to give UMD a look. Henderson probably has to visit College Park to get a scholarship, but currently he seems infatuated with the Tigers and Cornhuskers, with Rutgers also in the game.

Sticking in Delaware, Middletown receiver Elisha Sewell (he's transferring to Eastern Christian Academy after the school year) said Terps assistant Keenan McCardell has been in touch, but we're not sensing a strong UMD push. Sewell has visited College Park and plans to camp as well, so he is pining for an offer. Right now, though, he looks like a backup plan.

Same goes for Westwood (Washington, N.J.) wideout Nolan Borgersen, who attended a junior day but said he'd have to run well at a Terps camp to get a look. Borgersen has been in touch with Keith Dudzinski and holds plenty of UMD interest, but I'm not sure it's reciprocal.

Another guy to monitor down the road is St. Frances (Baltimore, Md.) wideout David Phelps, who continues to maintain he has UMD and West Virginia offers. But, as we've reported several times, those verbals are contingent on grades, and we're not completely sure Phelps will indeed qualify.

Some Defensive Back News

Maryland's chances with four-star corner Marcus Lewis (Gonzaga) took a hit when he announced he was leaving Gonzaga for IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) this summer. Lewis said he still has a rapport with the Terps and plans to continue building his relationship with them, but I got the sense it was lip service.

Right now, Florida, Florida State and Miami figure to be the leaders following his visits to each, while Ohio State is under heavy consideration as well. Lewis will announce a top five next week, and from the sound of things the Terps will be fighting to nab that fifth slot.

You can read what Lewis had to say HERE.

Fellow D.C. product Ayron Monroe (St. John's) was most recently in State College for a Penn State trip. PSU, which has offered, looks to be Maryland's main threat for the Cadets' safety, and some have even given the Nittany Lions the edge. But the Terps remain in a strong position for Monroe, and he will likely be back on campus for the spring game April 11. With Monroe's brother in College Park, and Locksley his recruiter, we're not inclined to write the St. John's product off.

Likewise, we still like UMD's position with Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Md.) corner Ashton White. White joined Monroe at PSU and naturally came away impressed, but he lacks a Nittany Lions offer. If Penn State makes a charge it could very well work its way to the top of White's list (White said PSU is among his top three schools, along with Maryland and Notre Dame), so monitor the situation. But right now the Terps have an edge with it being the hometown school; the fact he's very comfortable on campus; and his rapport with the coaches.

Next up, White is scheduled to visit Rutgers this weekend, and he could make his way to Maryland's spring game April 11.

In New Jersey, Myles Hartsfield (Sayreville War Memorial/Parlin, N.J.) added a Penn State offer following his visit with the aforementioned recruits and now holds verbals from the Nittany Lions, West Virginia (which also just offered), Wake Forest, Temple, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Cincinnati, ODU, Rutgers and Pittsburgh. Maryland has yet to make a move (Hartsfield did visit College Park in February) -- and we're not sure it will. He's likely bound for RU if he doesn't take that PSU scholarship.

Finally, I just removed Kareem Gibson (Jonhstown, Pa.) from the hot board. A former Marylander with high interest in UMD, I thought Gibson might get a look, but he told me the Terps' staff hasn't been in touch with him in a good while. Pittsburgh, Temple, WVU and Toledo are his current options, and the Panthers could be the favorites.

Donahue Out

Linganore (Frederick, Md.) offensive tackle and Maryland commit E.J. Donahue let me know via text he suffered a torn ACL while playing lacrosse last week. Donahue didn't want to talk about it, but he offered up this message: "It's just a little set back. I'm going trough Maryland doctors for recovery and treatment. Can't wait to be a Terp!"

As some suggested on the message board, this could keep the wolves at bay. Donahue was collecting offers from the likes of Florida State and Wisconsin, and while he remained a firm Terps commitment, he expressed interest in visiting other schools (he did take in West Virginia). But recruiting is a cruel game, and I'm not so sure the Seminoles and Badgers will push for him now that he has a significant injury.

Some Quarterback News

About a week ago Kai Locksley (Gilman/Baltimore, Md.) announced a top 15, in no particular order, of: Maryland, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Miami, Auburn, Oregon, UCLA, Alabama, North Carolina, Ohio State, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Louisville, Georgia and Northwestern.

That's nice.

In real news, Locksley did visit UCLA last week and had positive reports about the staff, school, area and the offense, though we don't see him ending up a Bruin. After all, UCLA just landed Josh Rosen, the top-ranked gunslinger in the 2015 class, and unless Locksley wants to play receiver (which he said he doesn't), he probably wouldn't see the field as a QB.

Up next, Locksley plans to take in Auburn in early April, followed by a trip to FSU in mid-April and a visit to Oregon April 20. And, yes, he will be back in College Park soon enough … and, yes, we still have the Terps in a good position for his services.

There's not much new with Nick Johns (Gonzaga), the other top Terps target, though he did perform well at the Elite 11 competition in Atlanta (article). Johns was most recently at N.C. State for a visit, and he did pick up an offer from the Wolfpack, but we don't see him ending up in Raleigh.

While UMD, NC State and UVA have already offered, both North Carolina and Penn State are considering extending verbals. PSU, a personal Johns family favorite, is a legitimate threat to Maryland should it pull through, so we'll see what happens there.

We did finally catch up with the father of Maryland offeree Joey Burrow (The Plains/Athens, Ohio), who let us know his son has genuine UMD interest. The four-star triggerman holds scholarships from NC State, UMD, Western Michigan, WVU, Cincinnati, Toledo and Ohio (where his father is the defensive coordinator), while Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Michigan State, Duke and Tennessee are interested. Burrow, though, is mainly concentrating on schools that run the spread.

WVU and Cincinnati have already received visits and are prime contenders, but Burrow will check out College Park this April, perhaps for the April 11 spring game. We'll know more about where he stands following that trip.

Burrow plans to announce his college decision at some point this summer, so unless he lands another major scholarship, this could come down to Terps, Mountaineers and Bearcats.

You can read the latest on Burrow HERE.

Robbins Chimes In

Maryland line target David Robbins (Glenelg, Md.) recently visited FSU, Alabama and Auburn, with Ohio State coming up this weekend. He'll take in the Terps' spring game April 11, and then head to Wake Forest April 15 before ending at Kentucky.

While Robbins has said UMD is among his standouts, we don't get the sense he'll ultimately wind up in College Park. Florida State may be the team to beat here, and Ohio State is in position as well. We'll see if things change as the offseason moves along.

You can read what Robbins had to say HERE.

One more note: Terps O-line target Chance Hall (Northside/Roanoke, Va.) picked up his first SEC offer from Vanderbilt after visiting Nashville, Tenn. Vandy now seems to be firmly in play, along with UNC and possibly UVA. Hall has not expressed Maryland interest recently and doesn't have plans to return to campus at this time.
