WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — The season ended for Maryland’s men’s basketball team on Sunday, but the Terps are already re-focused on the future.

Friday night, Diamond Stone, one of the nation’s most highly touted recruits, tweeted he would be playing for Mark Turgeon and his Terps.

Stone, a senior at Dominican High School in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin is ranked in the top 10 by major media outlets. He is listed as No. 7 in the nation by ESPN and No. 6 by Rivals.

The 6-foot-10, 250 pound center will provide Maryland with a much needed interior presence. He’ll join young players like Melo Trimble and Georgia Tech transfer, forward Robert Carter, to build off this year’s success.
