After taking an unofficial visit to Maryland Wednesday, forward Eugene McCrory now lists the Terps as his favorite.
“Yes, because it’s my hometown and I’ve been there so much,” the Riverdale, Md., native said by text.
“The campus is great. I live in Maryland. I drive past almost every day. I only live five minutes from the campus.”
A 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward who was once committed to Seton Hall, McCrory also lists Virginia, Colorado, Indiana, Wagner, Clemson and Hofstra. He hopes to decide by January or February.
McCrory is averaging 21.4 points, 11.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks on the CJEOTO postgrad team.
