If we don't get the twins, could it be a thing for the Terps?

Let me preface this post by saying I'm still optimistic that the Harrison twins will wind up being Terps. But are there any positives for UMD if they choose to play at UK, Baylor, or somewhere else?

Andrew Harrison is clearly the best PG in the class, according to all of the rating services, and we are in need of a point guard. But let's assume we wind up with Rysheed Jordan. He, too, is a five-star, pass-first point guard, and I suspect it's less likely that Jordan will bolt to the NBA after a year or two.

Terrell Stoglin at shooting guard will be a senior in the 2013 season (I fully expect him to use all four years of eligibility). Nick Faust, who was recruited as a small forward, is capable of playing the 2, and will be a junior. Seth Allen, a combo guard and an excellent shooter, will be a sophomore, and Jake Layman appears capable of limited playing time at shooting guard. That puts us four-deep at shooting guard entering 2013. If the Harrisons choose Maryland, Aaron Harrison creates a bit of a logjam at the 2. Although Aaron Harrison is among the most talented SGs in the 2013 class, do we really need a shooting guard in 2013?

If the Harrisons don't choose the Terps, the scholarship that would have gone to Aaron Harrison could be used for a PF, where we'd have only Alex Len and Ashton Pankey in 2013, as it stands right now. Damonte Dodd may be able to spend time at power forward, but his skillset right now seems to lend itself to playing at the 5.

I'd be interested to hear from others to see if anyone else has thought along similar lines, or if I'm totally out in left field on this.
