There seems to be two prevailing opinions as to where the Terps need the most help entering the 2012-2013 basketball season. For the sake of argument, I'll add a third, and I wanted to take a somewhat more realistic approach, as opposed to a "pie-in-the-sky" look.
The first area is point guard. The general concensus is we need a point guard...soon. Are there any players that we've been working on in the 2012 class who could fill that role? I can't think of any. And it's clear Turge is going after several highly-rated PGs in 2013 (Andrew Harrison - of "the twins" fame - and Rysheed Jordan to name just two).
Sniper/secondary scoring option is another area of concern. Marco Bourgault, the sophomore JUCO player has been mentioned several time on this board, and there is always hope that Jake Layman or Seth Allen will be able to help in that area.
The third area is help inside. Having Shaq on board will be a big help (no pun intended), but is there enough depth with Len, Pankey, Padgett and Cleare being the only options? Will we be too vulnerable down low if one of those four gets hurt? We, apparently, are still in the running for Charles Mitchell, and Philip Nolan is still on the board, although there is some doubt we're still considering him.
Assuming Turge only wants one more player to round out the 2012 class - and keeping in mind who is still available - where do you think Turge should spend that last scholarship? Remember, Turge said he doesn't want to bring in any "stiffs".
Considering the available options, where do you think Turge should focus to round out the 2012 class?
