THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Shooting guard Sean Mosley committed to Maryland yesterday, giving the Terrapins their second commit for their class of 2008.

The decision really came down to what coaches I was really close to, and I can say that about Keith Booth and Gary Williams, Mosley said in a telephone interview hours after making his announcement at a press conference at St. Frances Academy in East Baltimore. I’m very excited to come to Maryland.

Mosley, a 6-foot-4, 200-pounder ranked No. 62 nationally by rivals.com, joins power forward Terrence Jennings in the Terrapins’ class. With two seniors (James Gist and Bambale Osby) and one unoccupied scholarship, Maryland has three slots available for 2008 barring a transfer, ineligibility issue or academics-related penalty from the NCAA.

Mosley, who averaged 21 points as a junior, chose Maryland over Clemson, Florida State, Indiana and Syracuse. He will join a burgeoning backcourt that already includes rising sophomores Eric Hayes and Greivis Vasquez and incoming freshmen Adrian Bowie and Cliff Tucker.
