After missing out on one of its top 2021 targets in Benny Williams last week, Maryland men’s basketball received some positive news Sunday as it made the cut for 2021 four-star Jalen Warley.
Warley, a combo guard out of Norristown, Pennsylvania, included the Terps, along with Florida State. LSU, Miami, Michigan, Memphis Louisville, Ohio State, Oregon and Virginia, in his top-10. He is ranked as No. 27 player in the 2021 class, as well as the third-best combo guard and second-best player in Pennsylvania, per the 24/7 Sports Composite.
“Maryland has a good system for me and has done good with Philly talent,” Warley told Stockrisers of the decision.
With no Pennsylvania schools making the cut, Maryland could look to use the fact that College Park is Warley’s closest option to home as an advantage.
