Terps land Conn. power forward
Jordan Williams is coming to College Park.
The 6-foot-9, 245-pounder from Torrington, Conn., committed to the Terps yesterday.
Williams, a four-star prospect according to Scout.com, told Zags Blog that academics played a big role in his decision.
“My decision was based mainly on the academics. I want to major in criminal justice and Maryland has the top criminal justice program in the country. If something were to happen where I would get hurt and couldn’t play basketball, then I would have something to fall back on.”
Williams joins Brooklyn, N.Y., forward James Padgett as part of Maryland's 2009 recruiting class.
