As the recruiting season for the 2012-2013 season comes to end, now would be a pretty good time to recap how the Terps Men’s Basketball recruiting class has come together. It is an even better time to have the discussion since the Terps just gained their 6th, and almost certainly final, commitment for the 2012 class yesterday evening when 6′ 3″ combo guard Sam Cassell Jr. (yes, the son of that Sam Cassell) agreed to join Mark Turgeon and his squad.
The Maryland Terrapins have signed their sixth prospect for 2012 with the signing of Sam Cassell Jr. The son of a former NBA player Sam Cassell, he has playmaking ability that will help the Terps in the upcoming year. You can check out his highlights at here. From that video and various scouting reports, it is clear Cassell is a big time scorer who can help with the ball handling duties. This will be big for the Terps as their only real point guard type is Pe’Shon Howard and he has had injury issues. Also Cassell would likely become one of the best outside shooters for the Terps along with Terrell Stoglin and fellow freshmen Seth Allen and Jake Layman. Finally, Cassell is from the Baltimore area and this signing shows how far Turgeon and his staff is willing to shore up the local area. This is most likely the last signing for the Terps and I must say I like how this team looks and expect big things for the Terps.
