Stoglin to ACC
Rivals.com Basketball Recruiting Analyst
2010 three-star prospect Terrell Stoglin of Tucson (Ariz.) Santa Rita High School has found his college fit all the way on the east coast.
Maryland is now on the board with its first 2010 commitment with the 6-foot-1, 160-pound scoring point guard.
"I decided on the Terps because it seemed like a perfect situation for me," said Stoglin. "When I'm a freshman most of their guards will have graduated. So I went ahead and pulled the trigger."
Stoglin also closely considered Texas A&M, but in the end felt that Maryland gave him the best chance to play early in his career.
"When I talked to Coach Gary Williams, he made it clear that they really wanted me," he said. "Playing as a freshman is very important to me, and going to Maryland gives me the best chance of doing that."
Stoglin has been in the D.C. area for a high school tournament but will visit the Maryland campus for the first time this June. Maryland has been to Tucson several times in the past year to watch and visit with Stoglin.
During his junior season, Stoglin averaged 27 points, seven assists and four rebounds. The lefty will play with both Tucson Pump N Run and the L.A. based Pump N Run this spring and summer.
He is the No. 114 ranked prospect in the class of 2010.
