Gilchrist Says He'll Be a Terp

The biggest news of the weekend comes from Augustus Gilchrist, who took an official visit to Maryland and committed to play for the Terrapins. It's somewhat of a surprise, given that Gilchrist attended Georgetown's midnight madness and it was believed that Florida was also in the hunt for the 6-9 forward whose stock certainly rose throughout his high school career. It's uncertain whether Gilchrist will play beginning in late December, when he would become eligible, but clearly it's a big pickup for Maryland. The last player I can remember enrolling midyear at Maryland? Juan Dixon. He turned out okay.

Whatever losers get mad at G-town, they got him to decommit, not Maryland.

JTIII has nothing to do with Gilchrist leaving VTech. Anyway, he can land any prime time player in the land. Gilchrist is not in that class of players.

The story in the Sun says he was spooked by the shootings and told Greenburg he wanted to wait a year to enroll. When Greenburg told him to come now or not at all he decommited. That's his side according to his AAU coach.

Who is Gus Gilchrist?

He also claimed that he went on the official because Md expressed an interest. It doesn't sound like he's all that heavily involved in what schools interest him on a personal level. He also indicated an interest in Md for its business school even though UVa's is clearly one of the top schools in the nation.

hopefully this gilchrist won't get too big a head and leave early

Hopefully he keeps his head unlike the previous Gilchrist to attend UMD. Though the ACC championship was quite nice. That Gilchrist played out of his mind!!!

Any inside word on what's up with Nigel Munson?
He has apparently said he won't be returning to VA Tech this year. He expressed an interest in playing for Mason or GW but there seems to be a question about his eligibility.
He didn't get much PT with VT last year but was sensational (in a calm, quiet way) with DeMatha, leading them during their brilliant 2005-2006 season

Look who wouldn't rather play for the Terps anyway. Looks like another elite 8 trip in the next couple years for GW. VaTech probably 2-14 in the acc. Yeah why would Gus make that choice????

Glad Gus went to the terps....

we'll have more fun watching him lose for the next four years....
