"I just want to let everyone know that I’m still committed to Maryland," Stoglin said. "I want to clear the air on that because apparently something came out in Phoenix that said I was thinking about [Arizona]. But I’m firm with my commitment and I’m a Terrapin."
Stoglin said he plans on signing with Maryland in November.
"We as a family, if we feel extremely comfortable with a particular school, after the home visits we may make a a decision.
"We already know all the schools."
"Bruce Pearl [of] Tennessee, he works with point forwards, Bobby Huggins works with point forwards. Maryland worked with Walt Williams. Paul Hewitt, everybody's got something."
He added: "It's going to come down to what school is going to be honest about letting Tobias be a point forward. Don't be surprised if a decision may be made after the home visits."
Always. Always. Every time we are in the hotel room, anytime we are talking, I am always telling him he’s got to be a Terp. I want to play with him because he is a good player and I respect him. He is a very good player, so it’s good to have him on my team. And he tells me he’s thinking about it.
Maryland is getting a good one in Stoglin. The Santa Rita High School (Tucson, Ariz.) guard kept Pump-N-Run in the game against Canada Grassroots Elite when it looked like things could get ugly. Stoglin drilled four big 3-pointers, teamed up for the play of the day on an alley-oop to teammate Erik Swoope and never let the defensive pressure of the Canadians take him out of his game.
[Terrell Stoglin]’s a really good, high-basketball IQ point guard. Good handles, good shooter, good vision. He’s deceptively quick, although he doesn’t have the best basketball body and he’s not overly athletic. So improving his body, gaining strength and improving his lateral quickness -- those kinds of things are going to be important for him. He’s extremely talented, and really the only thing keeping him from being considered one of the top-rated point guards is his body and athleticism, which isn’t necessarily bad, just not what you’d want from an elite point guard.
Stoglin scored 35 points in a 62-60 loss to Compton (Calif.) High. The 35 points look nice on their own, but what makes them so impressive is that most of them came while being guarded by Demar Derozan, a USC signee.
Derozan, a 6-foot-6-inch forward, is considered to be one of the five or 10 best players in America by every analyst who matters.
