The Terps have done a very good job of addressing needs throughout their roster and maintaining a good amount of balance in the various graduation years. Their class of 2012 is a perfect example as they were able to add a true back-to-the-basket post player in Malina Howard as well as a versatile forward in Tierney Pfirman and a combo guard in Chloe Pavlech. This will allow them to be flexible moving forward with the class of 2013.
While Maryland has a good amount of space scholarship-wise for the class of 2013, keep in mind that the Terps have historically not used all 15 scholarships at a given time. So with two 2013 commitments in hand, Lexie Brown and A'lexus Harrison, Maryland will be on the market for impact kids with their remaining space in the 2013 class.
Look for Maryland to work on landing an additional impact player in the class of 2013 such as Diamond DeShields, Jannah Tucker, or Ronni Williams. The Terps could also look to add another quality post player to enhance their depth.
