Terps receive LOI from Martin Breunig

martin-breunig-terps.jpg The third member of Maryland's 2011 basketball recruiting class is officially on board.

Martin Breunig, a 6-foot-9 forward from St. John's Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield, Wis., faxed his letter of intent to the Terps basketball offices today.

“We are very happy to have Martin join our basketball program," Maryland coach Gary Williams said in a news release. "His basketball background is very impressive as he grew up playing in Germany and spent this past season at a great program in St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy. On the court, Martin is a versatile forward who can do a little bit of everything on the offensive end. His work ethic and character are also things that will bring great value to our team and we are excited about his future.”

Breunig, who averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Lancers, joins City shooting guard Nick Faust and Seton Hall Prep (N.J.) point guard Sterling Gibbs in Maryland's 2011 class.

The Terps will do well next year. Looking forward to the season.

When is Hubert making his decision?

CB 13: Could be anytime. It was supposed to be this week. -- Matt

Breunig is probably a great kid but please wake me when we start bringing in some 5 star recruits. Countdown: 2 more years of Gary Williams!!!

Right now most fans are looking hard at whether Desmond Hubert picks UNC or UMD. Thing is Hubert is a 3 star player in the recruiting world. It would be great if we could get him but if we do and he doesn't become all ACC by his junior year; I'm sure most will remember that he was only a 3. Wonder why Roy is messing with 3 star recruit when UNC is used to doing so much better? Could it be that the rating system for these H.S. players leaves so much to be desired. I remember getting the hell beat out of us by Santa Clara in the NCAA Tourney by Steve Nash. He was from Canada and I don't think that anyone cares how many stars he was as a H.S. senior. Maryland will compete with UNC and Duke for the ACC Championship next year and GW will sign a 5 year extension on his contract. Go Terps!

terp81 I think you are right about MD competing for the ACC crown next year....only if Stoglin learns how to PASS THE BALL.

Hubert chose UNC. ESPN just reported

Henson and Zeller are back. Duke gets Austin Rivers. FSU has a good recruiting year. VT did too so they may be the competition for MD. Not Duke not next year. Stoglin needs a better spot than switching off with Howard. If Stoglin can score let him. Brunig wasn't highly regarded at a tournament recently. Said he looked lost against good players. Probably not athletic for his size and physique. No, MD needs shooters. Howard has a good 3 but he won't get to throw up more than 2 or 3 a game. I would like to see Faust produce out of the gate. Parker was a #35 and was touted as a top shooter. I find it hard to believe scouts could be so wrong compared his showing in practice. I have my doubts as to what goes on during scrimmage there. They will make the tourney but only because Wake and State suck. MD is the dogs unless this Faust and Andderson show up. Why is it the best guys MD gets with few exceptions can compete like a Nolan Smith? Jonny Flynn. Ty Lawson. There's only one reason Gary is still there and I'm being honest: Under Armor loves his butt. If he won great. But this schedule to get 20+ wins is brutal. No wonder the NIT didn't want to see them. Wichita State. They're the competition now. Not Duke.

Steveinboston, stop talking like you are a fan of the Terps. Your lack of basketball knowledge is both humorous and baffling at the same time. When "we" start bringing in 5 star recruits? You are the true definition of a bandwagon fan and you like others who bash the Terps and Gary show how gutless you really are. Good riddance to people like you....

Gary Williams to retire. Announcement Friday.
