Its Wed lets talk recruiting... I know its not Friday but we have a new #1 Target

Bye bye Twins, hello Raysheed Jordan. The site has debated for the past few months what to make out of Turge and Co being so involved with PGs in 2013. It is obvious that he wants and needs a true PG and an ELITE one to boot. Not a 3 star, but a high 4 star or 5 star player. Someone who can instantly come in and play major minutes. Well I think we might have found an answer as to who is the #1 target.

Jordan, a 6-4 guard who plans to commit in July, is regarded by some as a top-25 overall prospect in the Class of 2013. He said Maryland’s staff is letting him take things at his own pace rather the pressing for an early commitment, but added that coach Mark Turgeon has let him know where he stands on the wishlist.

“He told me I’m No. 1 on their board,” he said.

I have been pitching this arguement for the past month. It is obvious (IN MY OPINION) that the staff doesnt feel comfortable with the twins and have moved on. They are 100% focused on adding Jordan. Lately Stan Robinson has been a focus of theirs and I think that he will end up being their prime SG target (ASSUMING THEY DONT ADD A COMBO GUARD IN 2012). Adding Cassell JR or Wood totally changes the need for a SG. However, Uconn has been making a STRONG push at Cassel and im not sure Turge is sold on Wood.

Here is the Baltimoresun write-up about Jordan. Enjoy

Another quote:

“I think they played pretty good at times. They just made some mistakes late in the game,” he said. “The freshman big guy [Alex Len] stood out. I think he’s gonna be pretty good.”

Point Guards love to play with big men, so this is slightly encouraging in my opinion. Add Shaq and Layman to the mix next year, to go with Pankey this year and he could have some great options in the post.

Oh and another point I forgot to touch on. I hope Jordan is A) telling the truth about being the #1 (think he is) B) I hope Turge isnt telling numerous people they are his #1 (dont think he is- could get very sticky if he is)
