The 2012 Chesapeake Bowl took place this past Saturday, and the North (players from DE, NJ, and PA) came away with an impressive 38-13 win over the South (players from DC, MD, and VA). Future Wahoos Donta Wilkins suited up for the South squad, while offensive line target Jaryd Jones-Smith played for the North.

This latest Chesapeake Bowl was a one-sided affair, as the North drubbed the South by a score of 38-13. Kansas-bound wide receiver Ishmail Hyman, a product of St. John Vianney in New Jersey, hauled in two touchdown passes en route to earning MVP honors. His fourth quarter touchdown catch effectively ended any comeback hopes of the South, which had cut the deficit to 28-13 heading into the fourth quarter.

Following the game, I caught up with Wilkins and Jones-Smith for the latest on their recruitments.

In addition to setting an official visit to UVa the weekend of January 18-20, Wilkins reportedly had scheduled officials to Michigan State
