Martin Breunig commits to Maryland
The third commitment of Maryland's 2011 basketball recruiting class is on the board.
Martin Breunig, a 6-foot-9, 215-pound forward from St. John's Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield, Wis., committed to the Terps this afternoon. The Leverkusen, Germany native took an official visit to College Park over the weekend.
“I saw [the commitment] coming because I spent the last two days with him,” said Martin Esters, the player development coach and international scout at St. John's. “After the visit, he liked everything about it. He didn’t want to commit on the visit; he wanted to talk it over. … But last night he called, he’d been thinking about it, really liked everything about it, and he’s really excited about it.”
Breunig, who averages 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Lancers, also considered Virginia, among others. He joins Seton Hall Prep (N.J.) point guard Sterling Gibbs and City shooting guard Nick Faust in Maryland's 2011 class.
