Four-star guard Noah Locke is one of the most-talked about recruits of the summer.
According to InsideMDSports, Maryland extended a scholarship offer to the McDonogh School (Md.) standout on Tuesday.
Over the last month, Locke has picked up nine offers from schools around the country. The likes of Minnesota, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, UNLV, and Virginia were among the programs in that group.
According to 247Sports’ Composite rankings, Locke is currently rated as the No. 130 prospect in the 2018 class. In addition, he’s also tabbed as the sixth-best player in the state of Maryland and the No. 26 point guard.
Locke wasn’t a highly sought-after commodity before the summer began. However, he’s currently tearing it up for Team Melo on the Nike EYBL circuit.
The local standout is averaging 18.2 points and is shooting 51.4 percent from the floor. Locke is also connecting on 49.5 percent (53-of-107) of his shots from beyond the arc, which leads the circuit.
Providence currently has the only Crystal Ball prediction for Locke’s services. The Friars offered the four-star guard last June and have been very active in his recruitment ever since.
Locke has drawn interest from Mark Turgeon and his staff in recent weeks due to the Terrapins missing out on Gonzaga (D.C.) four-star guard Prentiss Hubb. Hubb committed to Notre Dame after the perception was that he would end up in College Park.
Maryland also made the final four list for John Carroll School (Md.) five-star guard Immanuel Quickley on Monday. In addition, the Terps also extended offers to Rock Creek Christian (Md.) forward Jermaine Harris and Wesleyan Christian (NC) forward Ian Steere.
