The Terps sign a local power forward with family ties to the school.

Maryland men’s basketball signed its first player in the 2021 class Wednesdssy, with local power forward Julian Reese officially joining the fold.

The four-star prospect is a product of St. Frances Academy and ranked as the No. 82 player overall, No. 19 power forward and No. 3 player from Maryland in the class. He chose the Terps over offers from LSU, UConn and Miami among others.

Reese stands at 6’9, 205 pounds, and provides a good frame at the four position. He has a strong, consistent motor and works hard on the defensive end of the floor. On offense, Reese will play a similar role to that of Jalen Smith, working both inside and outside.

Choosing the Terps was a family affair for Reese, as he is the younger brother of Maryland women’s basketball player Angel Reese, who was the No. 2 overall recruit in the Class of 2020.

Maryland men’s basketball has three committed players in the 2021 class, with four-star prospects James Graham and Ike Cornish also verbally pledged. The class ranks No. 18 in the nation and No. 3 in the Big Ten.
