St. John’s junior guard Anthony Cowan has committed to Maryland on Thursday.
Maryland has been watching Anthony Cowan Jr. since his freshman year, and gave him a scholarship during his sophomore year. During his three years in high school, Cowan picked up offers from Georgetown, Notre Dame, Louisville, Miami and other schools.
“I actually grew up a Georgetown fan,” Cowan told InsideMDSports. “Maryland was my first big offer and they kept up with me ever since.”
Cowan has been one of the best players in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference this year. Cowan is a versatile guard that can shoot the three ball very well, and he can finds ways to get to the basket.
He leads the conference in scoring with 19.6 points per game, and scored 30 or more points in game three times this season.
The Terps are also looking at DeMatha’s combo guard Markelle Fultz and Paul VI power forward Corey Manigault. Cowan’s commitment may get other players in the WCAC to take serious look at the Maryland.
Maryland is having a great season as the team is ranked No. 16 in the nation. Freshman guard, and Bishop O’Connell alumni Melo Trimble is one of the best freshmen in the country.
With Cowan committing, the Terps’ future looks very bright.
