Class of 2020 point guard Marcus Dockery has committed to Maryland basketball, according to 247Sports’ Evan Daniels and InsideMDSports’ Jeff Ermann.

This news comes on the heels of Dockery’s visit to Maryland this weekend. He enters his junior season at Bishop O’Connell High School in D.C., the same school that produced Melo Trimble, as four-star prospect on the 247Sports Composite recruiting board. That same service ranks him as the No. 154 player in the 2020 class, No. 30 player at his position and No. 6 player in D.C. Dockery’s commitment comes about a month after Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon extended a scholarship offer.

2020, of course, projects to be Maryland’s first season without Anthony Cowan Jr., who’s entering his third season as the Terps’ starting point guard. Whoever steps in as Maryland’s point guard that season will have some big shoes to fill.

Dockery is Maryland’s first commit for the Class of 2020. The Terps have post players Mahki and Mahkel Mitchell from Bishop McNamara High School committed for 2019.

Dockery also had offers from Georgetown and Seton Hall, La Salle and Cincinnati. The schools he presumably was hearing from:
