Terps Still Rate for Recruits

Here's an interesting entry on Phoenix junior guard Terrell Stoglin, who late last week committed to play for Maryland. Stoglin, who plays for Santa Rita, apparently caught Maryland's attention while playing in Good Counsel's season-opening tournament that included many top teams and players, with plenty of college coaches making the trip to Olney. The eye-catching part, perhaps, is how Maryland remains highly-regarded outside the Beltway. While the Terps' fall from national contender was well-chronicled this past season, the view from afar seems different:

Tucson Santa Rita boys basketball coach Jim Ferguson asked 6-foot-1 and still growing junior point guard Terrell Stoglin if he wanted to wait to see who Arizona was going to hire, before he made a verbal commitment.
Why wait when Stoglin has Maryland coach Gary Williams planning to give Stoglin significant playing time as a freshman?
This is Maryland, ACC, national championships, prime time college basketball.
Stoglin did what any kid wanting to establish an identity away from home would do: He said yes to Williams' scholarship offer.

Well, Arizona are about to hire Sean Miller. They are going to have a good coach and a lot of minutes to offer recruits in the next few years.

The real question is, will Stoglin wind up playing for Maryland, or change his mind?
