Landing Tobias Harris Could Catapult Terps Recruiting Class to #2 Nationally

8/28/2009 6:59:22 PM Jerry Meyer, the head national basketball recruiting analyst thinks that the Terps 2010 class could rise even further than #10.  Here's the quote:
Maryland has established a solid foundation to its 2010 recruiting class with commitments from shooting guard Terrence Ross (No. 43 overall), forward Mychal Parker (No. 53) and guard Terrell Stoglin (No. 122).

This three-man class presently holds the No. 7 spot in the national team recruiting rankings. Despite being No. 7 nationally, in terms of the ACC, Maryland is No. 4 behind North Carolina, North Carolina State and Wake Forest. Obviously, the ACC is off to a great start recruiting in the 2010 class.

Maryland will likely need to land a quality big man to hold onto a top-10 national ranking. If Maryland were to land four-star Damontre Harris, who will officially visit next month, they will hold their ground in the top 10. Land a ringer like elite power forward Tobias Harris, and the Terps would rise as high as No. 2 nationally and No. 1 in the ACC

I'm still learning about Damontre Harris but everyone loves Tobias.  At last count, there are 11 schools on Tobias' list.  Maryland get its in home visit on September 16.  It sounds like Tobias might decide by the end of the September.  Locking up the #2 class in the country heading into the season would literally be an unprecedented development at Maryland.
I'll bet some of the first to know about the decision will be followers of Tobias' twitter feed.  If you choose to follow him, please don't do anything stupid like asking him to come to Maryland.  I don't know if it's a recruiting violation; but I'd rather not push the envelope when in doubt.
