All-Met Junior Guard Commits to Terps

Big news! Montrose Christian All-Met junior guard Terrence Ross has committed to play for Maryland, Montrose Coach Stu Vetter reports.

"As of noon today," Vetter said. "Maryland did a good job recruiting him. They recruited him hard this spring and during the season. Throughout the year, he told me he enjoyed Montrose and he wanted to stay close to home. This was an opportunity for him to not only stay close to Montrose but also go to a great program like Maryland. It's a great opportunity for him and it's a very good fit for Maryland."

Ross, a 6-5 shooting guard from Portland, Ore., transferred to Montrose before this school year. He averaged 13.5 points per game this season, but Vetter thinks his scoring will increase significantly next season.

"He can play above the rim and create his own shot," Vetter said. "You'll see that a lot next year. He needs to improve some things, but the things he needs to improve will be worked on this summer and I think next year you'll see a super player."

Being from the West Coast, Ross had attracted attention from a wide variety of college recruiters, from UCLA and Oregon State to much of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

"Maryland came on strong and came on strong early," Vetter said. "I think most of the other schools thought he was going to wait until the fall. But he wanted the recruiting process over and picked Maryland. ... He was getting tired of the recruiting process, the letters and the calls. That was a big part of it. He just wanted to be able to work in the classroom and work on his game this summer without having to work on the recruiting process. He and his mother visited the University of Maryland during the season and they liked it. She likes the atmosphere and being close to Montrose and having the future set with the University of Maryland."

Ross is the third Montrose All-Met guard in recent years to commit to Maryland, joining current Terps Greivis Vasquez and Adrian Bowie.

Here's Jeff Nelson's recent Recruiting Spotlight on Ross. Watch around the 5-minute mark, where Ross says his dream school is Louisville. Guess things have changed in the past three months.
