While Mark Turgeon may have won his first press conference at Maryland, he continues to lose recruits.
First, CBSSports.com broke the news that transfer Wally Judge chose Rutgers over Maryland. Then, Sterling Gibbs and Nick Faust received releases from their letters of intent, and now the third member of the incoming class is on the verge of asking out as well.
Martin Breunig, a 6-foot-9 Germany native who plays at St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy (Wisc.), plans on reopening his recruitment, sources told CBSSports.com.
“Nothing firm,” one source said in terms of new schools reaching out. “Still a pretty fluid situation.”
When Gary Williams first announced his retirement from Maryland, SJNMA assistant coach Martin Esters said Breunig wouldn’t make a decision until a new head coach was named.
“Williams is obviously a big part of Maryland, but right now we have to wait and see what happens there,” Esters told CBSSports.com at the time. “We can just be patient now.”
When Breunig first committed to the Terrapins, he was also being pursued by Virginia, Saint Louis, Arizona State, Oregon State, UAB and others.
