Maryland class in top 25

According to Jeff Harrington of USA Today Maryland's 2008 recruiting class of shooting guard Sean Mosley and forward Gus Gilchrist is the 22nd ranked class in the nation. Maryland is 4th in the ACC behind North Carolina (4), Wake Forest (5), and Duke (17). In his player rankings he has Gilchrist ranked 47th in a nation and Mosley ranked 63rd overall. Gilchrist is expected to enroll for the second semester this season and could be available to play in January if needed. It is more likely that he will redshirt and be part of the 2008 class. Prospect Ater Majok, a 6-10 forward from Australia, is also expected to sign before Thanksgiving and is ranked in the top 30 at his position. In the end Maryland's class may climb into one of the top 20 classes in the nation.
It is a pretty solid haul for Gary Williams and will add two very polished players in Mosley and Gilchrist. With the departure of Boom Osby and James Gist the Terps will need Gilchrist to match his hype next season.

Football News
Guard Andrew Crummey is still doubtful for the game against Florida State after coming back from a broken leg earlier in the season. The line could use him but only if Crummey is healthy, if not he should just prepare for the NFL combine and not jeopardize his potential professional career.

Tight end Dan Gronkowski and RB Keon Lattimore should both be back against FSU. Lance Ball will get the start at running back. Finally.

Danny Oquendo's knee injury will sideline him the rest of the season but early reports are that he did not tear his ACL, which is (relatively) great news.
