Kansas State assistant Dalonte Hill has accepted an offer to join Mark Turgeon's staff at Maryland, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Tuesday.
An official announcement is expected soon.
This development should be huge in terms of giving Turgeon a recruiting advantage in the Washington area because Hill, a Washington native, has strong ties to the D.C. Assault summer program. Bob Huggins lured him to Kansas State specifically for that reason. It led to the enrollment of Michael Beasley, a former D.C. Assault star who spent one year Kansas State before entering the NBA Draft.
Hill is expected to join Scott Spinelli and Bino Ranson on Turgeon's staff.
Together, they should be able to help Maryland recruit the area at a high level.
