Mychal Parker, a 6'6 SG/SF of Washington, NC, verbally committed to Maryland last night with a call to Asst. Coach Chuck Driesell. Parker informed the Terrapin staff of his and his father's desire to continue his education and basketball career at the University of Maryland.

Parker and his father were elated for the long process to be over. Other suiters of Parker were Virginia, USC, Kentucky, NC State, West Virginia, Georgetown, and Miami.

Parker's dangerous mix of size, skill and athleticism will benefit Maryland's 2010 Top 20 caliber class of 6'5 freak athlete Terrance Ross and solid point guard prospect Terrell Stoglin.
