Garrison Makes It Official

Maryland's recruiting class has come together and an important piece of the puzzle is now in place. Travis Garrison, a power forward, is headed to College Park.

Terps Class Looks Great

A big man. A shooter. A leader and an athlete. That's what Maryland's 2002 recruiting effort now looks like since DeMatha power forward Travis Garrison cast his lot with the Terps on Tuesday.

"I committed to Maryland," Garrison said. "I knew it for a while but I wasn't sure and had to talk it over with my family and make things certain."

Garrison joins SG Chris McCray, SF Nik Caner-Medley and PG John Gilchrist. While each is decidedly different, they share a common bond. Each is a Top 100 player. Gilchrist and Garrison are Top 50 guys. This is a fine recruiting class.

For the last month, we've been under the assumption that Garrison would pick Maryland over Miami and this announcement just confirmed our beliefs. For Garrison, the decision just made sense. "It's home. I have a lot of family support here. The coaching staff is great and they just came off a Final Four."

Garrison, and rightfully so, is high on what the Terps can accomplish this year and beyond. "Actually, I know they are going to make it to the championship this year." And, he can see more runs to the Final Four in the future. "I see it and I hope I ain't the only one who sees it."
