Recruiting season for basketball is well under way for Maryland, and Scout has been kind to Maryland, ranking all three of their commitments in the top 100 and all but one of their targets in their newly released rankings.
Dion Wiley ranks 27th, Melo Trimble 35th, and Jared Nickens is a new entry to the top 100 at 93rd, giving the Terps one of the most dynamic classes in the country (Scout has not done team rankings quite yet). For comparison's sake, 24/7 Sports ranks Wiley 48th, Trimble 38th and Nickens 160th.
The Terps still have one scholarship space open, with the consensus seeming to think they'll go big to fill out the class. Nearly all of Maryland's potential targets moved up, and many made their first appearance in the Top 100.
Goodluck Okonoboh moved to #37 and Obi Enechionyia is now at #69, and making their way onto the list are Terry Larrier and Chinanu Onuaka, at #59 and #64, respectively. Abdul-Malik Abu moved up, from #59 to #51, and Martin Geben is still not listed.
The big winner is Wisconsin big man Kevon Looney, who moved from #14 to #9, making him one of eight uncommitted top ten prospects. Meanwhile, Trayvon Reed moved down from #45 to #66.
For comparison's sake, last year Roddy Peters was ranked #44 in the nation. Damonte Dodd went unranked.
