Terps Land Big Forward from Connecticut

Is this a big pickup for Maryland? The Terps yesterday landed a commitment from Connecticut power forward Jordan Williams. Homestate U-Conn. Had not offered Williams, but plenty of other top teams had and he said he picked Maryland over St. John's.

I am glad that Jordan Williams chose the University of Maryland - and did not even consider attending the University of North Carolina.

Go Terps!

Only time will tell. It's nice to see Gary hitting the recruiting trail and getting a player he was really targeting. The roster for the next 4 years is starting to shape up and look good. One more athletic big man would be great.

10 % graduation rate for Maryland Basketball - nice job, Gary Williams (he said with a heavy dose of sarcasm !)

I can't believe that Debbie Yow, has not fired Gary Williams.

There is no way, that a parent should ever send their son to the University of Maryland to play basketball.

Maryland will finish with a 15-16 record and 4-12 in the ACC.

No NCAA bid

No NIT bid

I am glad that Maryland football, is no longer recruiting Tavon Austin.

Go Tar Heels !

He should have accepted an offer from TEMPLE or VANILLANOVA with all the FICKLE FANZ from PHILLY....

WHY do readers of Recruiting Insider continually have to go back and RE-READ or RESEARCH Barr's articles to find out details about the athletes he writes about?

When we read about a BASKETBALL recruit, at a minimum, we wanna know his height, weight, points/rebounds/assist/steals per game. And we DON'T wanna have to click link after link to find out this basic information...

C'MON, Josh!

Is this a big pickup for Maryland? What's that supposed to mean Mr. Knowitall?

Good news on recruiting.
As a reminder for those of you with early senility memory problems coupled with I.Q.s substantially lower than normal body temperature, MARYLAND won a NCAA Championship with Gary Williams as coach.
I've watched the TERPS since Bud Millikan was coaching.
Lefty was first class.
Gary IS first class.
