Without a Boom Osby or a Greivis Vasquez on next year's roster, fans may be looking for a unique personality to latch onto and cheer on for the next four years.
Terp fans, look no further. Tucson, Arizona point guard Terrell Stoglin is overflowing with charisma. He even tried his hand at an amateur rapping career, which his buddies put on YouTube. Luckily, he's sticking to hoops.
The 6-foot-1, 160-pound floor general also finished one of the most prolific high school careers in Arizona high school history, leading Santa Rita High to the Arizona 4A-II state championship.
Stoglin averaged 29.4 points, 6.4 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 2.6 steals per game as a senior, finishing only behind Atlanta Hawks guard Mike Bibby in the state's all-time scoring.
His work didn't go unnoticed, as he earned scholarship offers from Maryland and Texas A&M, and an increased interest from Portland, USC, San Diego and Oregon State, among others.
He also shot up in the rankings, going from a relative unknown to No. 98 in the ESPNU 100, and the No. 19 point guard. Rivals ranked him slightly lower, rating Stoglin the No. 125 overall player in the country and the No. 30 point guard.
Stoglin played alongside incoming recruits Pe'Shon Howard and Haukur Palsson in the Capital Classic, scoring 11 points on 4-for-8 shooting, including 3-for-6 from 3-point range. He also added four rebounds and two assists in his 19 minutes.
He and Howard filled the Terps' most pressing need: a competent point guard. The two are also fairly similar to the pair of sophomore big men who were rookies with the Terps last year in Jordan Williams and James Padgett. Stoglin, like Williams, was a prolific scorer in high school, with criticism surrounding his level of competition. Both performed well on the AAU circuit and landed scholarship offers from Maryland and other high-majors.
Howard wasn't the No. 1 scoring option on his high school team, like Padgett, and instead acted as a complement to his team's big scorers. However, Howard and Padgett's high school competition and packed high school tournament schedule prepared both for the level of intensity that comes with college ball.
A two-time All-State selection, Stoglin is built in the same mold as former Boston College point guard Tyrese Rice, who finished his career as the Eagles' all-time leader in points (2,099), assists (595) and steals (161). While Stoglin might not put up those numbers, he is expected to be an immediate contributor, and could start from day one.
