Big lineman back from Maryland

Orangeburg (S.C.) Wilkinson offensive lineman Jamal Medlin took an official visit to Maryland during the weekend and came away with the Terps looking solid.
He did not, however, pull the trigger on a commitment and Maryland did not overtake his leader.
"It's a tie between Clemson and Maryland right now," he said.
Maryland was Medlin's first official visit. He will check out the Tigers next weekend, followed by N.C. State (Jan. 20) and South Carolina (Jan. 27).
The 6-foot-6, 305-pounder got a chance to check out the facilities in College Park.
"It was pretty good," he said. "For the most part, they all looked pretty new and modernized."
Medlin also got a chance to meet with Terps offensive line coach Tom Brattan and head coach Ralph Friedgen.
"He seemed pretty cool," Medlin said of his meeting with Freidgen. "He was honest and straightforward."
Medlin is a versatile offensive line prospect who can be used at a number of positions along the line.
"I played (center, guard and tackle) in high school," Medlin said. "(The Maryland coaches) saw that on film so they know that."
He hung out with fellow South Carolinian Ronnie Tyler, who committed to Maryland during his trip.
Medlin was among the standout performers at the 69th annual Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas in December. He had an offer from Maryland going into the week of practice, but walked away with full rides from Clemson, N.C. State and South Carolina following the event.
