To wait or not wait - on the Harrisons

With the recent transfer of Jamal Branch from Texas A&M there has been speculation that he may end up at Maryland. This brings up the old question, do we take Branch (if he wants to come) with the chance that it may scare off the Harrisons? Turgeon liked him enough at Texas A&M so will he go after him again?

I looked at all the schools recruiting the twins, Arizona, Kentucky, Maryland, Villanova and Baylor. I looked at their rosters right now with guards that are freshmen or sophomores since they will be juniors and seniors when the twins potentially arrive on their campus for the 2013-14 season.

We know that Maryland will have Howard (SR), Stoglin?? (SR), Faust (JR) and Allen (SO) in front of the twins. Arizona has two freshmen guards playing decent minutes now in Nick Johnson and Josiah Turner. The Cats are adding Gabe York a highly rated SG next year.

Kentucky has Doron Lamb (SR) and Marquis Teague (JR) on the roster now and will add Archie Goodwin at the 2 next year. I'm pretty sure Kentucky is not done recruiting this year either. Villanova has three freshmen playing quite a bit now and will add a really good PG in Ryan Arcidiacono next year.

Lastly, there is Baylor which has Brady Heslip (SR), Deuce Bello (JR) on their squad now and LJ Rose a highly touted PG coming in next year.

My point is that wherever the Harrisons go there is going to be competition. Are all these staffs going to wait and see what the Harrisons will do before adding any other recruits? I want the twins to come here just as much as any other Terp fan but am worried about the situations at Kentucky and Baylor. At the moment, there seems to be plenty of playing time at those two schools.

This could all change if Stoglin leaves school early. Then the Terps situation would be just as good as any other school.

So, what would you guys do in Turgeon's shoes? Should we take Branch or Cassell now and move on or do we still hold out for the twins. Let me know your opinion.

BTW, this is my first post so be nice.
