A former Terp recruiting target, Gil Biruta from St. Benedict's in NJ, requested a release from Rutgers today.
Anyone think the Terps may make another run at him? ESPN rates him as a 91 and the #36 Power Forward in the 2010 class (Pankey, for the sake of reference, is #39).The Lithuania native is a big body with a good outside shot, two things the Terps could use next year and for years to come. Could be a target.
Also, Eric McKnight, the #42 Power Forward in the class, has Maryland as one of his top schools along with some teams like Memphis, Oklahoma State, and VCU. He seems like he's more of a tough rebounder than Biruta, but given our lack of depth down in the paint, and considering Dino is leaving next year, I would want to scoop up one of these guys in this class.
Any thoughts? Anyone have any knowledge about either of these guys worth sharing?
