Watch these highlights for all 3 Maryland basketball 2018 signees

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

With its three signees, Maryland men’s basketball’s Class of 2018 ranks No. 7 in the country. If you haven’t seen any of them play yet, Courtside Films has compiled a highlight tape of all three commits for your viewing pleasure.

The Terps are still looking to add more pieces to the puzzle, but with five-star power forward Jalen Smith, four-star small forward Aaron Wiggins and four-star combo guard Eric Ayala already in the fold, one could argue this is already head coach Mark Turgeon’s most impressive class yet.

For reference, Ayala—the lowest-ranked of the three-man class—has a higher 247Sports Composite rating than both Darryl Morsell and Bruno Fernando, each of whom has already looked solid in the team’s first two games of the season. Pairing these three with Morsell and Fernando could make for some exciting moments in College Park.

If you follow Maryland basketball, you know by now that the Terps did not land five-star shooting guard Keldon Johnson. What you may not know is that if it were up to his father, Maryland might have had better luck.

As for current Terps basketball players, Justin Jackson is projected to be drafted 16th overall to the Portland Trail Blazers in Sports Illustrated’s latest mock draft. If so he’d be reunited with fellow Terp Jake Layman!

Maryland women’s basketball wasn’t able to finish off what would have been an unbelievable comeback against defending champion South Carolina Monday night, but showed a lot of grit in its effort.

The Maryland men’s soccer team will kick off its 17th straight NCAA tournament Thursday night at home against Albany.

The football team still has two games to play, but they might not be pretty. That said, an upset over either Michigan State or Penn State would almost surely get the Terps a bowl game based off their Academic Progress Rate.
