Rivals: Terps target has 'slight edge' as No. 1 in nation


Rivals: Terps target has 'slight edge' as No. 1 in nation

Maryland target Josh Jackson remains the No. 1 player in the country, according to newly released rankings from on Wednesday.

Jackson leads a strong Top 5 that includes Harry Giles (2), Jayson Tatum (3), Dennis Smith (4), and De'Aaron Fox (5). 

According to Rivals National Basketball Analyst Eric Bossi, Jackson holds a "slight edge" over Giles for the No. 1 spot, but in his opinion he and Giles have done some work to separate themselves from the rest of the field.

From Bossi:

The 6-foot-10 Giles is probably a little more polished overall. However, we still give Jackson the slight edge because he is as electrifying in the open floor as any player has ever scouted. If you're looking for comparisons, Jackson is something like a new age Scottie Pippen in playing style while Giles is somewhere between Chris Webber and Danny Manning at the same age when it comes to style.

The nation's No. 1 player visited Maryland in August, reportedly saying at the time at he "could envision" himself playing at Maryland.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.

Panthers' first-round pick D.J. Moore visits Maryland with his new puppy

D.J. Moore has an adorable new puppy!

Days after the Carolina Panthers selected Moore as the No. 24 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the former Maryland wide receiver returned to his roots and paid a visit to College Park.

But the first-rounder wasn’t alone when he went to Maryland. According to the Terps’ football Twitter account, he brought his new puppy with him. Seriously, look at this puppy!


The Big Ten Receiver of the Year in 2017, Moore was obviously a crucial component of the Terps’ offense. He finished the season with 80 catches — a Maryland single-season record, which was also a Big Ten high.

He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with Maryland.
