Loyal readers know this is not a place for recruiting news. That's best left to people who are willing to invest a lot more time in that sort of thing; if you don't dive into it, you'll get exposed a lot quicker than in other niches.
So it comes as no surprise that Maryland acknowledged today that Nick Faust and Sterling Gibbs sent their signed letters of intent in over the last week. Maryland is losing three scholarship players after this season, so getting at least two guys in the fold during the fall signing period is a good step.
Faust is a Baltimore product, while Gibbs comes out of Seton Hall Prep in New Jersey.
Know who else is a Seton Hall Prep product? Maryland linebacker Alex Wujciak, who played with Gibbs' older brother Ashton (now a star guard at Pittsburgh). Wujciak's younger brother, Boston College-bound Connor, and Sterling Gibbs are both seniors this season.
So Wujciak, who is never afraid to opine on the issues of the day, was only too eager recently to chime in on one of his school's future basketball players.
"He's good," Wujciak said. "He'll walk in and you'll think he's the manager. He's bow-legged, and he's got a little smile on his face. And when you put the basketball in his hands, it's over. It's crazy."
Is it a top-of-the-line recruiting analyst? No. But for now, it's at least a different take, and an amusing one with a different sense of perspective at that. Then again, that's always to be counted upon when dealing with Wujciak.
