Maryland gains verbal commitment from Florida swingman
Late this week, Maryland added a 6-foot-6, 215-pound small forward to its 2010 recruiting class when it gained a verbal commitment from Iceland-native Haukur Palsson*. After witnessing Wednesday's seven-point Maryland win over Duke at Comcast Center, Palsson returned to central Florida, where he attends Montverde Academy, and decided to accept the Terrapins' scholarship offer, according to the Baltimore Sun.
* His first name is pronounced "HUGH-ker."
Palsson originally planned to attend DeMatha High for his senior year, but after David Adkins joined the Maryland women's basketball coaching staff last summer, he referred Palsson to Montverde Coach Kevin Sutton. Adkins previously worked as an assistant at DeMatha. Palsson has served as the sixth man for Sutton's Montverde squad this season.
Maryland's five-man class of '10 now includes Palsson, point guard Terrell Stoglin, point guard Pe'Shon Howard, small forward Mychal Parker and power forward Ashton Pankey.
