Stoglin Has Big Plans

TSR's Ethan Rothstein talks to Terps point guard commit Terrell Stoglin about his commitment.

Terrell Stoglin has high hopes for his freshman season at Maryland.

The 2010 point guard recruit, part of a signing class that also includes four-star prospects SF Mychal Parker and SG Terrance Ross, has set the bar high for himself.

“I want to make the ACC all-freshman team,” Stoglin said. “I just want to win, honestly.”

The 6-foot prospect from Tucson, Ariz., as well as Parker and Ross, will have to first replace Greivis Vasquez, Eric Hayes, and Landon Milbourne after their upcoming senior years - no small task.

“We want to come in and contribute the best way that we know how,” he said. “We're not them, but we think that we can contribute a lot, so we're just being ourselves.”

As for his senior year at Santa Rita HS, Stoglin said he wants to work on his defense and quickness, which he said needs improvement before he goes to the next level.

Stoglin has big goals before he leaves high school too. “I'm looking forward to a championship, playing here in Arizona,” he said. “I've been here three years and haven't won, and I just really want that.”

He's very excited about coming to College Park, however, and he likes the program and the school. “The campus is nice. The atmosphere is good,” Stoglin said. “I'm excited about the tradition… the basketball program is a family there.”

He said he's talked with sophomore Sean Mosley and incoming freshman Jordan Williams about Maryland. He also said he's talked frequently with Ross.

“I talk to Terrance a lot about next year,” he said. “We think we're going to be one of the best duos in the country.”
