Boiling Springs (SC) receiver Brooks Foster nearly had the infectious commitment atmosphere carry over into his recruitment on an official visit to Maryland.
"I had a good time. (Kentucky and Maryland) both were about the same. I got to tour the school, got to spend time with the players and coaching staff, and that's about it. I talked to (basketball head) Coach (Gary) Williams and watched the basketball team practice. He said I had an opportunity to play."
Is that idea intriguing to him?
"Oh yeah. I also thought about committing up there. Only two I know did, but there were a lot that talked about it."
Certainly the Terps would have to be high on Foster's list after the visit.
"They're high. I can't say they're number one, but they're up there."
Foster is not ready to tip his hand, putting the Terps even with North Carolina (1/9), Kentucky, Duke, Wake Forest, and Clemson (1/16).
