McGary will visit UMD officially

149

This is good news, obviously. It's hard to predict where this one will end up because I don't think McGary legitimately has any favorites at the moment. The fact that Maryland seemingly has a shot, though, is all you can ask for. My feelings on this recruitment are pretty much summed up here.

Why Maryland and Pittsburgh Should be Rivals

By now you’ve all heard the news that Pittsburgh and Syracuse will be joining the Atlantic Coast Conference.  This makes sense on a lot of levels for the ACC: 1. Both schools fit academically with...

For those of you who weren't at the stadium, and those of us who were screaming so loud we couldn't hear it... Great job all around last night by Under Armour, the Athletic Department, players and fans.

"Right when I saw the Comcast Center I was amazed," Layman said. "It's huge compared to some of the other schools I've seen. At the end of my visit they actually had me and my parents watching a video. They took us into the Comcast Center with a spotlight shining on a bunch of chairs in a circle (at mid court) and we sat down and talked. It was cool."

Maryland Minute 8.31.11 - Jerami Grant Update, Plus More Len Analysis

Jerami Grant visiting Rutgers, possibly Maryland According to Dematha's head coach. Also says that Grant will decide next week. It seems the Terps have a shot in this one. Temper expectations...

Savon Goodman De-Commits from Villanova

15

This could have Terp implications in two ways: 1. Maryland had interest in Goodman initially, and there may be interest again now that he's available. 2. Goodman de-committing could impact the Amile Jefferson recruitment. On the one hand, Jefferson and Goodman are good friends so the de-commitment of Goodman could hurt Nova's chances. On the other hand, Jefferson and Goodman play similar positions so this could actually work in Nova's favor. H/t to rquidas for the link.

The good news keeps pouring out of Charlottesville. 2013 PG Nate Britt seems to really like the Terps. There will be stiff competition for Britt (specifically Georgetown and Duke) but it seems like Maryland's got as good a shot as anyone.

Omar Calhoun Trims List to 8, Terps on it

2

Calhoun is a 2012 Top 40ish SG out of Brooklyn, NY. Big-time scorer (Turge likes scorers, eh?) who could use to put on a little weight. Of course, among the other 7 teams on Omar's list are Kentucky, UNC, and UConn, so this is an uphill battle. But it's good to see the Terps in the mix with so many high-profile guys so early in the recruiting season.

The more I hear from Turgeon, the more I like him. "We're not trying to be Carolina. We're not trying to be Duke. We're going to be Maryland." Love it.

Word is, there's a good chance Mark Turgeon names his staff today. #terps

@insidemdsports Well, this would be good news. I think Turgeon's top A&M assistant, Scott Spinelli, and Bino are likely picks. The third spot seems more up in the air. Regardless of who is named, I think we all know what priority number one is...

Help Save WMUC

2

For those of you who don't know, Maryland's student-run radio station had its funding cut by 75% and is on the verge of being disbanded. They do a great job of covering Terp sports, particularly the non-revenues, and guys like Bonnie Bernstein and Chick Hernandez got their start at the station. If you've got a couple bucks to spare, and want to do something good for Terps sports, follow the link above.

"Jordan is testing the waters," Leon Williams said. "But nothing is official, he is considering it but no decision has been made on him staying in the draft."

Leon Williams (Jordan Williams' father) It sounds like his parents aren't as keen on him leaving as Jordan is. Also, Jordan is apparently back on campus today. I get the feeling this is going to be a torturous five weeks...
