The Terrapins officially solidified commitments from a couple of high-end talents on Wednesday.

Maryland missed out on top-35 recruit Mario Kegler, but secured commitments with signed letters of intent from two other four-star class of 2016 recruits Wednesday.

Shooting guard Kevin Huerter announced via Twitter and Instagram he and his brother Thomas, who verbally committed to Siena two weeks ago, signed Wednesday morning. Kevin is the No. 12 two-guard in the country according to 247Sports, and chose the Terps over Notre Dame, Villanova and Marquette among others.

Six-foot point guard Anthony Cowan, who verbally committed to Maryland during his junior year, also made his pledge official on the opening day of the early signing period, per Jeff Ermann of Inside Maryland Sports.

Cowan is the No. 12-ranked point guard in the nation according to 247Sports. He chose to stay home in Maryland over offers from Georgetown, Illinois and Xavier among others.

Cowan and Huerter are set to fill major roles next season with the expected departure of Melo Trimble and graduating senior Jake Layman for the NBA. More information on them on Testudo Times' class of 2016 recruiting board.

Maryland's backcourt is in order, but coach Mark Turgeon and staff might have quite a bit of work to do in the frontcourt. If center Diamond Stone and Robert Carter leave, Maryland could be thin there next season.
