Fofana Selects Defending Champs

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Here on the campus of the Maryland Terrapins, the news started leaking out on Friday evening. By early Saturday morning, it was official and the Terps had a new center.

Fofana Picks Maryland

Hargrave Military Academy center Hassan Fofana became the early candidate to replace Lonny Baxter at the University of Maryland when he committed to the Terps early Saturday morning.

Late Friday night news began to spread that Maryland would land Fofana sometime in the next few days. Well, it took even shorter than we were told to expect for the commitment to happen.

Fofana is a key recruit for the Terps in our opinion. The big bodied post player can score in the paint, is tough to move around and will eventually cause some matchup problems on the inside.

Maryland, however, is not finished. The Terps are still actively pursuing Terrence Roberts and Ekene Ibekwe. Roberts is actually on Maryland's campus this weekend for the Charlie Weber Invitational. He'll visit Maryland for Midnight Madness next weekend.
