Terps lose out on one of their top targets to a future B1G foe.

According to Evan Daniels of Scout.com, top 100 local point guard Kevin Dorsey has committed to Minnesota.

Dorsey, a star at nearby powerhouses Paul VI and Team Takeover, was one of Maryland's top point guard targets for 2015. He was seen as a major Terp lean for a few months, especially when he seemingly accelerated his recruiting timetable directly after finishing his visit to College Park. Instead, he'll take his talents to Minneapolis and play for Coach Richard Pitino.

While this is certainly a surprise, it's not a crushing blow to Maryland's potential 2015 recruiting class. They're still very much in the game for fellow local standout Justin Robinson, who's the 247 composite second ranked player in Maryland and top 120 overall. Other point guard targets include Youtube sensation Noah Blackwell and new addition, prep combo guard Tyrone Taylor. Looking even further to the future, Maryland seems to be in great shape to land 2016 St. John's stud Anthony Cowan.

The Terps staff definitely wants to add a point guard in the 2015 class, to likely go along with a wing and a forward.
