Maryland basketball's Diamond Stone declared for the NBA Draft back in April, and he left College Park shortly after to train at IMG Academy in Florida. Yes, the same IMG Academy that's home to blue-chip Maryland football commits Joshua Kaindoh and Cam Spence. We hadn't heard from Stone since he declared, but the Baltimore Sun's Don Markus caught up with him. The center has been put through quite a grind since he got to Florida.
