The news of Gary Williams' retirement from Maryland is less than an hour old and already the fallout has started. Two of the school's top signees have announced they will reopen recruitment following Williams' announcement on Thursday.
Both Sterling Gibbs and Nick Faust will reopen their recruitments, according to Adam Zagoria.
"Yes, I will reopen with Nick Faust," Gibbs, a point guard out of Seton Hall Prep, said by text.
Faust, a 6-6, 175-pound shooting guard from Baltimore City College High, originally picked Maryland over Oregon State, Florida State, Marquette and Villanova.
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Gibbs also considered DePaul, Indiana, Pitt, Rutgers, St. John's and Seton Hall.
Since they both signed letters of intent, Gibbs and Faust will have to get permission from Maryland before they are able to look elsewhere. Gibbs is a three-star point guard from West Orange, NJ; Faust was a Top 75 recruit from Baltimore.
