BREAKING NEWS: Biruta to stay at Rutgers

After meeting with Rutgers AD Tim Pernetti Thursday morning, basketball recruit Gilvydas Biruta elected to stay at Rutgers, according to Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog.com.  Just last Saturday, Biruta listed five schools that he was considering attending next year after he requested a release from his LOI.  Maryland was one of the five schools that Biruta listed as a possibility.

Lots of story lines with this one.  How hard did Maryland go after Biruta?  We’ll probably never know since Biruta is staying at RU.  What did Pernetti tell Biruta in their meeting to convince him to stay?  Few Rutgers fans, if any, were expecting Biruta to be a Knight next year after he flat-out listed schools he wanted to attend other than Rutgers.  Did Pernetti give him a hint at who the new coach might be?  I hope we get some insight into that meeting at some point.

Pe’Shon and the Hawk Make it Official and Sign On to 2010 Maryland Recruiting Class

So now it is official. Pe”Shon Howard, Haukur Palsson, Ashton Pankey, Mychal Parker, and Terrell Stoglin comprise ESPN”s 21st Ranked recruiting class for 2010. My take is that Pe”Shon is vastly underrated and would make this class ranked higher. There are a ton of points that must be replaced and Stoglin, Howard , and Co will be called on immediately.

Here’s more on Terrell Stoglin

Here are notes on Terrell Stoglin, the incoming Maryland guard who played in last night’s Capital Classic: There’s a lot to like about Stoglin, who appears unselfish, sees the court well, has a sweet-looking lefty jump shot and — like fellow recruit Pe’Shon Howard — doesn’t lack for confidence. Stoglin finished with 11 points on 4-for-8 shooting — including three 3-pointers.
