Small forward Jared Nickens signs with Maryland

Maryland has officially added another piece to their class, as small forward Jared Nickens has signed his letter of intent and will be a Terrapin next season.

Nickens, listed at 6'6" and 180 pounds, attends the Westtown School in Pennsylvania, and is one of the most dynamic three-point shooters in the 2014 class. He committed to the program on June 14 just days after Dion Wiley did the same.

Rated as a four-star by the 247sports composite, Nickens is considered the 97th-best player in the class. He is rated as the 23rd-best small forward in the country, and the fourth-best player in the state of Pennsylvania. He also had offers from Miami, Oklahoma, Temple and Wake Forest, among others.

Melo Trimble and Dion Wiley are the star guards of the class, but Nickens provides a lethal shot from the perimeter and will be a dangerous weapon for the Terrapins from the otuside.

Here's a highlight video from his previous high school, when he played in New Jersey.

Four-star C Trayvon Reed signs with Maryland

Maryland can officially say they have found their big man for 2014, as commitment Trayvon Reed, a center, signed his letter of intent and will be coming to College Park next season.

Reed was the last commitment of the Terps' 2014 class (at least so far), helping bump the class to a top-five national ranking. He committed to the program on August 22, after taking his official visit to College Park.

Considered a four-star by the 247sports composite, Reed is rated as the 75th-best player in the class. He is ranked as the ninth-best center in the country, and the second-best prospect in the state of New Jersey.

Reed will add much-needed size to the Terrapin frontcourt, especially in a class that is mostly guard-based -- he is listed at 7'1" and 218 pounds, and is a skilled passer from the inside.

He also had offers from Florida, Florida State, Memphis and Miami, among others.

Here's a highlight tape:

Dion Wiley signs LOI to play for Maryland

Dion Wiley, one of the centerpieces of Mark Turgeon's 2014 recruiting class, signed his LOI to play for Maryland today after verbally committing to the school back in June.

Wiley, who is considered by most recruiting sites to be a top 50 player in the 2014 class, is a deadly three point shooter who can break down defenders off the dribble, get into the lane and score. He also provides Maryland with another tall player on the court (he's listed as 6'4"), which should cause some match-up problems for opposing teams.

Wiley, who is from Oxon Hill, Md., played for the AAU squad Team Takeover and was a big commit for the Terps, allowing them to lock down one of the state's best talents and bring him to College Park. Wiley also received offers from Georgetown, Texas, Florida, Virginia, Villanova and NC State, among others.

Wiley joins three other four star players, Romelo Trimble, Trayvon Reed and Jared Nickens, in what most consider to be a top 10 recruiting class for Maryland.

Finally, here is a highlight video of Wiley. Get excited, folks.
