It’s a great day to be a Terp. Keith Cavanaugh and terrapintimes.com reported tonite at 11:04 PM that Mychal Parker a major target of Maryland’s coaching staff will announce his intention to attend the University of Maryland sometime Thursday and join the 2010 recruiting class. If this is true, this will certainly put the Terrapins’ 2010 class way up on the charts. If the final piece of the puzzle Terrence Jones is landed, this could easily be a top 5 class. The coaching staff pursued the 6-6 190 lb Parker as much as possible and hopefully the persistence has paid off!!!!! Much more on Parker tonight at 6PM on Terp Talk. Check out the youtube videoon Parker.
Great. All we had to do was pay his unqualified “adviser” to work the basketball camp.

May, 2009: Parker has all the intangibles to be an outstanding wing at the next level. His frame is outstanding with nice length and he has broad shoulders to carry weight as well. His skills level is quite good, but he has a tendency to play in spurts. He gets most of his points-at least at the Pangos All-American Camp-driving to the basket. He’s an allusive scorer who is more finesses than power. He can knock down the 3-point shot and he gets solid lift on it, but it needs to get more consistent. He finishes well in transition and can get up for the big dunk. Defensively, he needs to show a greater urgency to bend his knees and become a lock-down defender because his effort at that particular end wasn’t strong. Parker is a high-major talent, but he needs to become more aggressive at both ends and continue to polish his skills to reach his potential.
