2014 front court recruits


I can't help it but I love to talk about recruiting.

Maryland has three scholarships available for the 2014 class unless Len goes pro and others leave. New commit Melo Trimble will take the scholarship of Pe'Shon Howard. The other two slots will come from scholarships currently being used by Auslander and Lipinski. If Len and anyone else leaves then there will be more spots open on the team. For now, I'm going to assume we have two spots open and I'll leave Len's (if it opens) for something down the road like a possible transfer similar to Dez Wells.

Maryland's front court for '14-15 season should include Smotz (SR), Shaq (JR), Chuck (JR), Jake (JR) and Dodd (SO). With the exception of Dodd, any of the others could be starters. There might not be much playing time the first year for any freshmen.

Most of us have heard that Turgeon wants to take two guards in this class, which for me is Wiley, Booth and Vaughn for now for the one scholly left for another guard. I hope he's looking to add a straight 2-guard. That will leave one scholarship for a front court player.

For the front court, our options include Dwayne Morgan, Obi Enechionyia, Abdul-Malik Abu, Isaiah Manderson, Alec Brennan, Chinanu Onuaku and Jacquil Taylor among others. In my opinion, the ones the staff are after the hardest are Morgan, Obi, and Abu. So if there is only one spot open for these players then who is going to take it? If Len goes, then Turgeon most likely will take another front court player.

I've attached a poll of my top five preferences to see who everyone thinks would take the one front court scholarship. However, I realize Len will likely be gone so it would be interesting to see who the top two are.
