Shortly after Diamond Stone announced his commitment to Maryland on Twitter Friday evening, the Terrapin community sent out some welcome tweets and responded with some hilarious reactions.
As you'll see below, there was a lot of excitement about Stone joining the Maryland family. That's probably because with his addition, the Terps are now likely the favorites to win the Big Ten next season and should be considered National Title contenders as well.
With the addition of Stone, Maryland's front court receives a huge talent boost. When you factor in that Maryland will also be adding Robert Carter Jr., who had to sit out this season due to transfer rules, the Terps will boast one of the nation's best front courts, especially if Jake Layman can continue to improve as his done during each of the previous off-seasons.
The Maryland players understand just how big the addition of Stone is to their team next year. Check out their reactions:
