Terps Come Out Of Crappy WVU Loss Smelling Like Roses With Diamond Stone Commitment

Who would you rather be?  WVU, who beat the Terps to make the Sweet Sixteen, only to then get ass reamed by the juggernaut known as Kentucky?  Or the University of Maryland, who lost to WVU, but then signed the #7 ranked ESPN player, Mr. Diamond Stone a few days later? You would want to be Maryland, obviously.

I mean, talk about a tournament-loss elixir. Diamond Stone, the all country, all talented, five star center out of Wisconsin (He spurned them to come East, which is also huge for the Terps), announced his commitment last night quickly made me forget about Sunday’s ugly loss.

Stone’s commitment, along with the presence of Georgia Tech transfer, Robert Carter Jr., immediately gives Maryland one of the best and deepest frontcourts in the country.  Stone will start at center,  Carter at power forward, and Jake Layman can go to the small forward position on a permanent basis, which will only help his game from a consistency standpoint.  Throw in improving Damonte Dodd and Michal Cekovsky and the Terps frontcourt rotation is menacing as all hell.  

Diamond Stone may be the biggest recruit to ever commit to the University of Maryland. His choosing of College Park is just another step in the right direction for this program and it proves that Coach Mark Turgeon is the perfect man for the job in College Park.  Welcome to College Park, big man!

  1. I’d say he’s the biggest recruit since my boy Mike Jones was raining triples. Let’s go Terps!
