Maryland women’s basketball is putting together another impressive recruiting class.
On the night of the most important game of the Terps’ season so far, 2019 four-star wing Faith Masonius verbally committed to Brenda Frese’s squad.
Excited to announce I am taking my basketball career and furthering my education at The University of Maryland ❤️ #fearthetutle #goterps pic.twitter.com/DZBZT0ut76— Faith Masonius (@FMasonius) January 23, 2018
A 6’0 wing from Manasquan, New Jersey, Masonius is currently the No. 53 player in ESPN’s 2019 HoopGurlz Super 60. She currently attends Manasquan High School, and is averaging 20.4 points a game this year and recently went over 1,000 career points, per NJ.com.
Masonius is the third commit in the Terps’ 2019 class, joining point guard Ashley Owusu and guard Zoe Young. Maryland’s three top-60 commits are the most of any team, breaking a tie with Louisville, Florida State and Virginia Tech.
Masonius will overlap for a year on the wing with Kaila Charles and Blair Watson. Sarah Myers can also play on the wing, and sharpshooter Taylor Mikesell is coming to College Park in 2018. That’s plenty of depth, but Masonius could still work her way into the rotation early in her time at Maryland.
With Masonius’ commitment, Maryland is now up to 11 players on its roster for 2019-20. There’s still nearly 10 months until signing day, which means there’s plenty of time to add to this solid class.
