At Maryland, Gary Williams and his staff have made a habit of discovering undervalued recruits. The Terrapins hope to have done it again by landing a commitment out of Martin Breunig.
A 6-foot-9 senior power forward, Breunig hails from Germany but has been prepping at Delafield (Wisc.) St. John's Northwest Military Academy.
"He just talked to the coaching staff about a half an hour ago," said St. John's assistant Brian Clayton. "He took a visit last weekend and really liked it and decided to make the move."
A long and wiry big man, Breunig moves very well and is only becoming more athletic with added strength.
"He's a big time athlete at about 6-foot-9 and 225 pounds," Clayton said of the three-star prospect. "But the thing he brings to the table at that height and size is his skill level."
It's that skill level that drew Gary Williams and his staff's interest.
"He puts the ball on the floor and he can shoot it. I think Maryland got a steal," said Clayton. "I'm excited for him. The thing he wanted when he came to the country was to play at the highest level and the ACC is about as high as it gets."
According to Clayton, Breunig is excited about his commitment and should be able to help on the interior. It's also pretty good for a St. John's Northwest Military program that is on the rise.
"I think it's really indicative of the type of talent and that we'll get and are trying to develop," said Clayton. "The kid came in and nobody knew about him and now he's going to an ACC school. Those are the kind of kids we want."
