Top 10 Stone down to five
Maryland has been in constant pursuit of Diamond Stone, the nation's top center in the 2015 class, for a very long time, but they've been seen as a long shot. That still might be true, but the Terps did find their way into the 5-star's top five, along with Duke, Connecticut, Wisconsin and Oklahoma State. Getting Stone on campus for a visit seems inevitable, and would be a very big deal.
