It's looking more and more like Matt Doherty is going to pull of a faint echo
of a great previous ACC recruiting war: when Tom McMillen was a high school
senior, he wanted to go to UNC, but his parents adamantly refused. If we
remember our history correctly, Dean Smith was going to make him the first
Morehead Scholarship player (a practice recently banned by the NCAA as a way of
padding the roster), but he turned up on campus in College Park at the beginning
of the school year. This led to four years of very intense UNC-Maryland
This time it's looking more like Maryland will be the disappointed party.
Having led for Jawad Williams for months, UNC has charged in and looks
likely to pluck him from their reptilian grasp. Jawad says he may or may not
visit Maryland now.
