Trimble picks Terps

Maryland adds a four-star guard for their first commitment in 2014.

Mark Turgeon and the Maryland Terrapins continue to accumulate talent. The 2014 class is now off to a good start for Maryland with the addition of Romelo Trimble.

The Arlington (Va.) Bishop O'Connell standout is one of the better scorers in the 2014 class, and he has also been working on developing into a point guard. Trimble, who starred for D.C. Assault during the summer, became the first commitment to Maryland on Thursday morning.

The commitment, which was confirmed via text message by Trimble, is a big one for the Terps as Trimble is currently seen as the No. 57 player in the class.

Trimble said, "Maryland was right for me because it is home and also I think I fit in well with their program."

Also once again this signals what Turgeon and his staff are trying to do by locking down their home base first, and then plucking in some quality prospects from across the country.

Trimble chose Maryland over Cincinnati and Rutgers, and is a huge first commitment in the 2014 class.
