This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

Turgeon leap

Four-star point guard Devon Dotson made his scheduled unofficial visit to Maryland on Monday.

Dotson is the No 8. point guard and No. 33 overall prospect in the Class of 2018, per the 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the AAU teammate of the Terps’ newest commit, four-star wing Aaron Wiggins, which gives Maryland a stronger tie than it may have had a few weeks ago. No decision is imminent from Dotson, but the summer recruiting months are certainly heating up for the Terps.

Maryland also hosted five-star shooting guard Keldon Johnson on an unofficial visit over the weekend in conjunction with a team camp and tournament. He’s the No. 2 shooting guard and the No. 17 overall prospect in the Class of 2018, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. There’s no timeline for Johnson to make a decision either, but the Terps look to be heavily involved, especially with the recent hiring of assistant coach Kevin Broadus. Broadus recruited Johnson’s older brother, Kaleb, to Georgetown as a member of the Class of 2015.

Getting those two prospects on campus and receiving a pledge from Wiggins all before June is over is just the start to what could be a huge summer for Turgeon and the Terps. Maryland is slated to have five scholarships open for the season after next and is in the mix for many top targets who could potentially fill those spots.

Five-star power forward Jalen Smith has his official visit to Maryland scheduled for June 23 and might just be the next commit to give this class a little bit more steam.
