Maryland Lands 5-Star Big Man Diamond Stone

After bringing in one of the best Maryland recruits in the past decade last year in Melo Trimble, head coach Mark Turgeon landed his second huge recruit in as many years yesterday when 5-Star big man Diamond Stone committed to play for the Terrapins next season. Stone announced his decision on his personal Twitter account.Stone chose Maryland over offers from UCONN and hometown Wisconsin.

He’s is a true program-changer for Maryland. With Melo Trimble coming back next year, Maryland was already going to be good. With Stone, Maryland has the potential to be great.

Diamond Stone is currently ranked by 247Sports as the 5th best prospect in the class of 2015. He is a projected lottery pick in the 2016 draft.
