Maryland is in play to add another four-star recruit from North Carolina as point guard Devon Dotson put the Terps in his top eight list.
Dotson, who plays for Providence Day, is rated the second best player in Carolina and the No. 8 point guard in the 2018 class. Maryland will have to deal with some tough competition to land Dotson as Kansas, Arizona, Miami and Wake Forest are on his list. However, Dotson enjoyed his visit to College Park on Monday.
“It was a great visit,” Dotson told Rivals. “They talked to my family a lot. I like the facilities after taking a tour of the campus.”
Mark Turgeon, and the rest of the Maryland coaching staff believe Dotson can be a great leader for the Terps. They also think he can create problems for opponents with his offensive skill set.
“They say that I am a dynamic point guard and they’re looking for me to be a leader from day one,” Dotson said. “They want me to be that point guard that can put pressure on defenses and make things happen.”
Maryland recently received a commitment from four-star guard/forward Aaron Wiggins, who is Dotson’s AAU teammate. Wiggins has played a role in trying to bring in Dotson.
“He is just texting me daily telling me, come to Maryland, come to Maryland,” Dotson mentioned in his interview with Rivals. “That is one of my closest friends that we talk about playing together.”
