Twitter / AdamZagoria: Maryland commits Melo Trimble & Jared Nickens...
Trimble, Nickens and the other incoming freshmen will all be getting matching tattoos on their legs that say "MBK", for "My Brother's Keeper," prompting everyone to make the same lame "that'll be weird when they transfer" joke in response to Zagoria's tweet. The freshmen all got on to campus Monday, with the start of the summer term, and this is a pretty cool way to get their career in College Park started off. And for the "they should focus more on playing the game" crowd -- we can guarantee that the tattoo process did not take place during practice time.

But he's mature enough, he's ready for it."
