Maryland basketball is heading into a promising season built with high-level talent. High-level talent often means early exits in modern collegiate basketball, and head coach Mark Turgeon is preparing for a few departures. Monday, Maryland offered one 2016 and three 2017 recruits.

Let's meet them!

Class of 2016

Killeya-Jones was heavily scouted last week at Under Armour's All-America Camp after decommitting from Virginia. At UA camp he tied for second in blocks per game at 2.0. In four games he averaged 11.25 points on 47.2 percent true shooting and four rebounds.

Class of 2017

Diallo (no relation to the Kansas commit) is one of the top rising juniors in the country. At the UA All-America Camp he tied for 13th in points at 15.2 per game and tied for 17th in rebounds at 5.5. He shot a 56.2 true shooting percentage, but struggled from the free throw line where he missed 16 of 34 attempts.

The 15-year-old had an eventful summer, starting four games for the championship-winning FIBA U16 team last month. In 19 minutes per game, Knox averaged 10.6 points on 56.4 percent shooting and 4.6 rebounds.

Preston played alongside 2016 Maryland commit Anthony Cowan at the UA All-America Camp last week. He finished eighth in points per game at 17 on an extremely efficient 64.3 percent true shooting. He also placed 10th in rebounds at 6.5 per game and 8th in steals at 1.5 per game.
