Maryland basketball’s signing Class of 2018 has doubled in size, as four-star combo guard Eric Ayala signed his National Letter of Intent Wednesday evening.
I am excited to welcome @EA_Glo to our @TerrapinHoops family. He has been a proven winner and leader on every team he has been on. Eric has an uncanny ability to get to the rim when driving the ball creating contact and getting to the FT line. One word to describe him: Toughness. pic.twitter.com/tIGxfQRj75— Mark Turgeon (@CoachTurgeon) November 8, 2017
It’s only Day 1 of the early signing period, which runs until next Wednesday, but all three of Maryland’s signees have put pen to paper now, though Maryland has only announced Ayala and Aaron Wiggins’ signings.
Ayala is the No. 76 player in the nation, the No. 7 combo guard and the No. 10 overall prospect in the state of Florida. He’s projected to be a four-year player, and should be a solid glue guy for the Terps.
Originally from Delaware, Ayala now plays for IMG Academy in Florida. He was the third, and most recent, verbal commitment in Maryland’s recruiting class. His verbal is now legally binding, and he’ll begin his collegiate career in almost a year in a Terps uniform.
We’re excited, @EA_Glo is officially a Terp!#NationalSigningDay || #FearTheTurtle pic.twitter.com/2nnT7qdggn— Maryland Basketball (@TerrapinHoops) November 8, 2017
