Maryland Signs 7'2 Center, Former 5* Recruit for 2019

Recommended Posts

If he can stay healthy he could be an impact guy right away! Apparently though he's struggled to stay on the court in high school which is why Maryland was able to get him.

If he's healthy, MD's going to be a near NBA sized team, but I don't know if that's a good team.  Plodding offenses just don't win consistently, and the lack of easy transition baskets has marred Turgeon's era.  With Chol being an amazing shot-blocker - along with Stix, they can play presure D with guys like Morsell, Cowan, Ayala, Wiggins and Scott (who's supposed to be a great defender) - they SHOULD play presure defense - with the shot-blockers back to protect the basket and get more easy transition hoops.  His teams have to work so hard to get baskets.   

MD's got some serious depth - also have the Mitchell twins coming, and Hakim Hart looks like an intersting swingman.  And Cowan is the only senior.

Probably don't want to have more than two of the big men on the floor at the same time in most situations.  But that's great depth to have to able to replace Smith and Chol with the Mitchell twins at any time.  Won't be able to get us into foul trouble.
