But only like you, we’re focused on what’s going down currently around D.C., Maryland and Virginia. So here’s a beam to what’s function opposite a area on Wednesday.


Decisions, decisions

Maryland is adult opposite Big Ten opposition Penn State and juggernaut Alabama for a services of Riverdale Baptist defensive behind Tariq Castro-Fields, who did not concede a execution in his comparison season. The 6-foot-2 speedster, who was first-team All Met this past tumble and a four-star partisan according to Rivals.com, is set to make a preference Wednesday afternoon during a Upper Marlboro private school. Less than 24 hours after starting in College Park, D.J. Durkin visited Riverdale Baptist to stress his goal on gripping a best players in a area during home.

In Northeast, a area’s other tip uncertain awaiting is H.D. Woodson defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman.

In his final tumble with a Warriors, Twyman posted 91 tackles and 8 sacks.

Local Big Three 

Once a dirt settles on Wednesday night and commitments are official, Maryland, Virginia, and Virginia Tech will all acquire casts of earnest internal prospects.

Flippin’ commits

Last year, Bullis quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. and Good Counsel linebacker Keandre Jones astounded a area a few weeks before signing day by switching their verbal commitments from Maryland to Ohio State. As zero is central until players fax their letters of intent, prospects are giveaway to change their mind on National Signing Day, most to a discomfit of fans bases. Will any of this year’s tip recruits make a last-minute flip?
