Terrence Ross, the No. 10 shooting guard in the nation out of Montrose (Md.) Christian, has decommitted from Maryland and is now considering several schools including the Terps.
“He’s going to reopen his recruiting on a limited basis,” Montrose Christian coach Stu Vetter said by phone. “Maryland is still very much in the picture. He’s going to limit it to four or five schools so that he can make sure he’s making the right decision.”
Vetter confirmed a report that those schools included Kansas, Kentucky, Duke and Maryland.

“He’s not going to go on the West Coast,” Vetter said. “Those are not schools he’s considering at this point.”
The 6-5, 180-pound Ross initially committed during the spring of his junior season. He won’t be able to take any officials until the high school season ends in March, Vetter said. He has four officials remaining.
“Once our season starts he’s got to be devoted to Montrose basketball and academics,” Vetter said. “In March he’ll be able to take some officials if he would like.”
