Gus Gilchrist Commits to Maryland

10/22/2007 12:03:46 PM This is huge news for Terp fans. Gilchrist is 6'10: and 240lbs. He is a shot blocker and a rebounder who can finish. He is rated as a 4-star recruit and a top-10 player at his position. That sounds like exactly what the Terps need. Suddenly, Maryland is overloaded with young big men. Shane Walker, Braxton Dupree, Jerome Burney and now Gilchrist. Gilchrist will likely enroll for the spring semester, so he will not be eligible until after January 1.

It is possible that Gary will hold him out for the entire year, but I would imagine that would entirely depend on how he is matching up in practice with the other big men. Throw in the kid from Korea and the other one who may be coming from Sudan and it looks like the Terps are going to be fine.

Let's just hope Gus is not like his eponymous predecessor and doesn't turn into a crazy meshugena
