Maryland Minute 5.13.10 - Gary Weighs in on Weijs


UMD Statement on Weijs

Here's what Gary had to say:

"Berend is a 6-10 very agile and mobile post player. With his size, skill and athleticism he will be able to contribute to our team immediately. He played on a very good junior college team and for a very good coach. We are extremely excited about Berend joining our program."

Milbourne Does "Okay" in Wizards Workout

According to himself.

"When we went one-on-one, I could have did a whole lot better than I did," Milbourne told the Terrapins Insider."  

Four Locals in MaxPreps' Top 50 Freshmen

Guards Aquille Carr and Beejay Anya, and forwards Chris Thomas and Kris Jenkins.

Carr's at the top of my 2013 wishlist:

"It's not a misprint – the best freshman in the country this season was just 5-foot-6. The Baltimore Sun called Carr's campaign "one of (the) finest freshman seasons ever in area" after he put up 25.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 5.3 steals per game."  

Bakich Nets Top 100 Senior, Jadamion Williams

The recruiting success for Erik Bakich continues. Williams is a switch-hitting second baseman who had interest from Ole Miss, Miami, and Oregon.  Not too shabby.

Breaking Down The ACC/Big Ten Challenge Matchups - RTC

They have the Big Ten winning the war, but at least Maryland wins their battle. - BB

Talor Battle coming back to Happy Valley gives the Nittany Lions some hope. The fact remains that they’re a one-man team more often than not. ... Maryland looks depleted with the senior class losses of Greivis Vasquez, Eric Hayes and Landon Milbourne. It’s prudent for role players Adrian Bowie, Dino Gregory, Cliff Tucker and Jordan Williams to take the torch and become impact contributors for Gary Williams. Williams showed the most potential for stardom last season.  I expect him to lead the way in this confidence-building road victory. Winner: Maryland (Big Ten wins 6-5).

Recruiting Report: Season recap: Ashton Pankey

I like Ash, a lot. Not sure I'm in love with his game quite yet.

"He’s a very athletic player," Palmer said. "He’s going to be an active, athletic type. A tip-dunk type of guy. He’s active on the glass. He’s a 4-man probably in the ACC. He has to work on developing his overall game with the ball handling, facing the basket, shooting. That stuff he has to work on, but his athleticism is very good. He’s exceptionally long."

That's okay; J-Dub is the overall guy. I would like to see another one come into the program soon, though. - BB


Jon Graham Commits to Penn State

Word is that he wanted to be a Terp but that staff wasn't interested. He'll (maybe) get a chance to show his stuff when PSU takes on Maryland in the Challenge.
