Terrapin Commitment Martin Breunig Sends Maryland His LOI

I feel like there's a "papiere" joke in here somewhere.

Victory. Not like it was ever in doubt, but whatever. Via Bracken:

"We are very happy to have Martin join our basketball program," Maryland coach Gary Williams said in a news release. "His basketball background is very impressive as he grew up playing in Germany and spent this past season at a great program in St. John's Northwestern Military Academy. On the court, Martin is a versatile forward who can do a little bit of everything on the offensive end. His work ethic and character are also things that will bring great value to our team and we are excited about his future."

Sounds like the German Hawk. In reality, we know he's more athletic and has a more varied, developed offensive game. I'm still intrigued to see where he'll play at College Park: Maryland obviously needs a 4 (and a 5, for that matter) and that's supposedly Breunig's natural position. At the same time, his skillset and size is obviously geared to the post.

I wouldn't be surprised if he takes a Singler-esque route, playing basically wherever Maryland needs a body for his first two or three years.

In other news, Desmond Hubert still hasn't made a decision. There have been a few Twitter rumors flying around in both directions, which should be enough to tell you that they aren't accurate. I haven't seen a deadline for his decision except "this week," so...we wait.

Like most, I still think UNC is the front-runner. I have no idea what's taking him so long unless he's waiting on something (Harrison Barnes' decision, perhaps?). Regardless, after seeing him in the All-American Challenge in Houston, I still want him to be a Terrapin. I know he's not an instant impact guy, but he honestly, truly looked good in that game. With Maryland's other options (uh...none) he's the best guy left. At this stage, he's actually a pretty solid pickup.

The joys of the spring lull.
