Maryland Minute - 7.18.13 - Is Maryland Focusing on a Big to Close Out 2014 Class?

After the Nickens commitment, Maryland shifted their focus away from guard Phil Booth and has now done so for Terry Larrier as well. Does that mean Maryland is going after a big to close out their Top 5 2014 basketball class?

It certainly looks like that's the case. Phil Booth basically being out of the picture wasn't surprising or shocking, but with this confirmation from Terry Larrier that Maryland is basically out, it seems like they're going all-in on landing a big in 2014.
