The good news just keeps coming for Maryland the past few days. First, word that Maryland will have 3 players in the 2008 recruiting class, then the Terps go to Death Valley and beat Clemson and now the Terps have received a verbal commitment for their Men's 2009 recruiting class by landing 4 star center James Padgett.
This is great news for the Terps and will help them building some inside depth for their front court in the coming years. At 6'8", Padgett has what you can't teach and that is size. It sounds like he needs to improve on his shot around he basket but he can hopefully come in next year and contribute immediately to rebound, which is one of his weaknesses.
