After a strong July, Terrence Jennings didn't waste any time with his recruitment. The five-star big man from Mt. Zion (N.C.) is off the board.
The athletic 6-foot-10 forward verbally committed to Maryland on Wednesday night.
"Gary Williams and Chuck Driesell have been recruiting me for a long time, longer than any other of the big time programs," Jennings said.
"I feel like they are going to take care of me as a player and get me ready for the next level. They have a great program and they are one of the top programs in the country."
Jennings said he liked the vision that Williams had for him at the next level and beyond.
"Gary Williams is going to develop me and get me ready for what I'm wanting to do," Jennings said.
"I know I'll be able to get ready for the next level at the end of the day. I want to get the most out college."
Kentucky and Washington were also considered.
"This is the best decision for me to be successful," Jennings said.
