Will Bowers, a 7-foot senior center from Archbishop Spalding apparently has given Maryland his oral commitment. Bowers has become a second team All-Metro as a junior after averaging 12.2 points and 6.0 rebounds for the Baltimore Catholic League/MIAA A Conference champions.

Bowers was actively recruited by big time programs such as Stanford, Notre Dame and Connecticut.

"All factors added together, the location, their coaching staff and style of play and reputation for developing big men, are the main reasons I chose Maryland," said Bowers.

"Will is aware that [Maryland coach] Gary Williams has done a tremendous job developing big men and I look for Gary to make Will a much better player at age 20 than he is now," said Mike Glick, Spalding's coach.

Bowers could develope enough in his freshman year to step right in to start at center for the National Champs after next year when they loose Ryan Randle and Tahj Holden to there graduating class.
