This is easily the best crop of talent that Maryland will have put on the floor during the Mark Turgeon era. The Terps retain two of their top three players from a season ago in Trimble and Layman. Trimble may arguably be one of the best players in the country this season and Layman’s leadership is something that can’t be undervalued.
Joining Layman in the frontcourt, will be Carter, the Georgia Tech transfer and Stone, a McDonald’s All-American. These three, together, form the fiercest frontcourt in all of college basketball.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Sulaimon, the former Duke standout, decided to come to College Park as well.
The sky is the limit for Maryland this season. They have to focus on winning the Big Ten first, and then making a deep run through March.
Projected Record: 27-3 (16-2)
