“First impression Of Turgeon just amazing”–Jack Young -Baltimore City Council President

From Matt Bracken’s Tracking The Terps

With players to meet, a coaching staff to assemble and a recruiting class to save, Maryland men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeonhas plenty to do during his first week on the job. On Friday morning, College Park’s busiest man took some time out of his hectic schedule and made an impromptu drive up I-95 for a meet and greet withBernard C. “Jack” Young, Baltimore’s city council president. “[Maryland assistant] coach Bino [Ranson], he texted me and said the new coach wants to come in and meet you and talk to you. He wanted to meet all the leadership of Baltimore,” Young said Friday. “He came here today, spent about 45 minutes in my office. I had somewhere to go and I’m quite sure he had other people to meet. We just talked about basketball, expectations of kids who come from Baltimore [and then go to] Maryland. I found him to be a very likeable person, a straight shooter. I like people who are straight shooters. I look forward to working with him and helping him be successful here in Maryland.”

A diehard basketball fan and champion of the city’s Recreation and Parks department, Young said his first impression of Turgeon “was just amazing.”
