Maryland men’s basketball just made it past barrier towards adding a top talent to its 2021 recruiting class, making the top six for four-star shooting guard Ike Cornish.

According to his Twitter, Cornish has cut his list to the following schools: Rutgers, Virginia Tech, Xavier, St. John’s, Georgetown and Maryland.

Following a strong junior season at Legacy Charter in Greenville, South Carolina, the 6’6 wing is listed as the No. 78 player in the 2021 class and the No. 16 shooting guard by the 24/7Sports Composite.

Cornish, a Baltimore-native, is one of eight shooting guards that head coach Mark Turgeon has offered in the class of 2021 per 24/7, hoping to restock the supply of backcourt options at his disposal once the current crop departs from College Park. If signed, he would join four-star power forward Julian Reese in Maryland’s current incoming class for the 2021 season.

Cornish is expected to make a final decision on his 17th birthday on Aug. 21.
