Terps' Mosley gets OK from NCAA

Maryland Basketball

August 02, 2008|By Don Markus

Sean Mosley, the talented 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Baltimore (St. Frances) who was recently academically admitted to the University of Maryland, has been approved by the NCAA Clearinghouse, Maryland senior associate athletic director Kathleen Worthington said yesterday.

Mosley becomes the 10th scholarship player for the Terps, who earlier this summer saw freshman center Gus Gilchrist and recruit Tyree Evans, also a shooting guard, released from their scholarship commitments. Gilchrist, who has yet to play in a college game, has since transferred to South Florida.

Aside from Mosley, who is attending summer school in College Park, the university also admitted Steve Goins, a 6-10, 250-pound center from Chicago, according to Worthington. Goins is also attending summer school at Maryland as he awaits final word from the NCAA Clearinghouse.

Worthington said another men's basketball recruit, Jin Soo Kim of Korea, is trying to get reclassified for eligibility beginning this year rather than waiting until next year. Kim, a 6-7, 170-pound forward who orally committed to the Terps last fall, is finishing his academic requirements at South Kent (Conn.) School, where he played two seasons.
