Maryland makes offer to Aliquippa QB
Written by: Josh Funk on Friday, July 3rd, 2009
Aliquippa quarterback Rasheem Jones has his first Division-1 offer, according to Rivals.com.
The Maryland Terrapins have offered Jones, a 6’3, 185-pound athlete. Earlier this year, the Terps received a verbal commitment from Wilson Area’s Tyler Smith, a 2,900-yard passer.
Jones helped lead Aliquippa to the PIAA “AA” Western Finals, where the Quips fell in overtime, 29-28, to Wilmington Area. Along the way, Aliquippa won its 13th WPIAL championship, stunning favored Beaver Falls, 8-6.
Through the first 12 weeks of 2008, Jones had completed 52-of-99 passes for 837 yards and six touchdowns. Jones did not have to throw much because he had the benefit of Maurice Carter and Terry Patrick, a pair of 1,000-yard rushers, behind him last season.
Aliquippa finished 2008 with a 12-3 record, averaging just over 30.2 points per game.
