2012 Basketball Recruting Targets

2/7/2011 11:07:06 AM - Sterling Gibbs: 6'3" 18-lbs Scouting Grade: 91
Gibbs has grown two inches in between his junior and senior season.  He is the brother of Pitt's Ashton Gibbs and if he is anything like his brother (he is now taller than Ashton), then the Terps have their floor leader for the next 4 years.

- Nick Faust:  6'6" 175lbs Scouting Grade: 95
Nick has the size and stroke to instantly change the Terps approach.  His size and shooting range will instantly upgrade the Terps perimeter and open things up for Jordan Williams.

- Desmond Hubert: 6'9" 207lbs  Scouting Grade: 90
Hubert could be the missing link in the Terps interior.  With Jordan Williams scoring and grabbing boards, the Terps need an intimidating shot blocker who can finish in transition.  Hubert should fill those roles nicely.

- Greg Whittington: 6'9" 195lbs Scouting Grade: NR
This kid is clearly a project but he has grown 2 inches in the last year.  The video shows that he has ball handling skills, an outside shot, and post moves.  The competition he plays against is weak; but the kid looks like a matchup nightmare to me.

- Martin Bruenig: 6'9" Scouting Grade: NR
The only thing I can tell you about this kid is what I see in the video.  He's big and can shoot threes.  That's something the Terps haven't had since James Gist.

- Wally Judge: 6'9" 248lbs
Wally is a former MCD All-American who just quit the K-State program.  He is Maryland native, so there is speculation that he wants to come to College Park. His stats at K-State have been underwhelming; but the Terps should be all over him anyway. He'd have to sit out a year, but judging by his raw talent; the Terps must be salivating.  His head is above the rim in this highlight!
