The Maryland basketball team offered 2018 guard Chimezie Offurum on Saturday, his coach told InsideMdSports.

The Terps sent assistant coach Bino Ranson (their top recruiter, according to ESPN) to Georgetown Prep to take a look at a Chimezie, and head coach Mark Turgeon came to see him a week later, according to IMS.

The 6’6 guard later received an offer from the Terps. Offurum has been rising through the ranks this summer, as he led his team to a win over DeMatha in the summer league championship. Following the victory, he received offers from Indiana, Virginia Tech, Rutgers and St. Joseph’s.

Josh Stirn of InsideMDSports has some analysis:

Offurum is currently unranked, but that should change soon. He’s a lanky, crafty ball handler with the ability to play with or without the ball in his hands and occasionally will slide over to play point guard for his high school team when Bynum is out of the game.

The Terps have spent a lot of time recruiting from the DMV area with the 2018 class. They have now added Offurum to that long list of local players.
