    One day after former Maryland guard Sterling Gibbs pledged to Texas, Nick Faust proclaimed his allegiance to Maryland.

    “Coach Turgeon’s goal is to win a national championship and I would play a big part in that immediately,” Faust said by text, confirming news first reported by

    The No. 11 shooting guard in the Class of 2011 per Rivals, Faust is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Baltimore City High.

    In related news, German power forward Martin Breunig, another former Maryland signee who obtained his release, is currently visiting Washington.

    “He’s at Washington,” said St. John’s Northwest Military assistant Bryan Clayton. “That’s the only hard visit he has set up now. He’s going to get back and digest that decision and figure out where he wants to go from there.

    “We’ve heard from pretty much everyone — Michigan, Florida, USC, Tennessee, UAB and Providence.”

    In other Maryland news, head coach Mark Turgeon hit a home run today by hiring Kansas State assistant Dalonte Hill, who has deep ties to the region and helped recruit Michael Beasley, Rodney McGruder, Wally Judge, Dominique Sutton and others.

    The Baltimore Sun has more on the hire here.
