Terps Take Ibekwe

Ekene Ibekwe is headed to Maryland and that leaves Terrence Roberts likely headed to the Big East.

Ibekwe Takes Last Grant

The Maryland Terrapins final scholarship will go to Carson (CA) High power forward Ekene Ibekwe. On Monday, it became clear that the Terps had accepted a commitment from Ibekwe.

The night before, Terrence Roberts was under the impression that the Terrapins were going to wait for his decision before deciding themselves what to do with Ibekwe. However, the situation must have dictated otherwise and Ibekwe is headed to College Park next fall.

Previously, Roberts told us that Maryland and Syracuse were the two he was most interested in so it would appear the Orangemen should be in a position to nail him down to a commitment.

The Terrapins, coming off the national title, have assembled a recruiting class that includes five guys and four potential Top 50 players. Michael Jones is the highest rated recruit, followed by Hassan Fofana, Ibekwe, D.J. Strawberry and center Will Bowers. \

When you win the national title you have to capitalize on the recruiting trail and the Terrapins did just that.
