University of Texas Longhorns.. I'm ready baby!!— Sterling Gibbs (@SterlingGibbs4) May 17, 2011
Not a huge surprise, considering he just visited and it had become clear that he wasn't going to be in College Park next year after Turgeon's arrival. We don't know exactly why he ended up elsewhere - did Turge not want him? did they clash? other issues? - but he isn't here, and that's all that matters. Fortunately for Maryland, this isn't a killer blow. For one, he was generally the lowest-ranked of Maryland's three commitments, which set off a red flag given his exposure. He would've helped out a bit with point guard depth in any foul trouble situations, but he won't be missed much immediately with two starter-level PGs on the team. And with Seth Allen already on-board for 2012, the point guard spot is pretty well locked-down. Martin Breunig is more important, but Nick Faust is the real jewel here. Hopefully once the staff is announced he'll re-up fairly quickly.
