Maryland freshman Dion Wiley's summer began the day he reported to school in early June for classes, official team workouts and pickup games. When his new Terps teammates went home for a couple of weeks in mid-August, Wiley's basketball education continued in Europe. In what was the first trip out of the country for the 18-year-old from Prince George's County, Wiley was part of a regional all-star team of college players that spent more than a week in England, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.

Despite facing what will likely be a limited scholarship situation for the 2013 recruiting class, the Maryland basketball staff continues to evaluate a wide range of junior prospects. The latest name to add to the list: Stanford Robinson of Paul VI (Va.). Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard, received a visit this week from Terps coach Mark Turgeon, who watched him practice on Monday. Last week assistant Dalonte Hill had attended one of Robinson's games. “They haven't offered yet but the head coach was out here," Robinson said.

Baltimore hasn’t hosted a Maryland basketball game since November 1999. But new men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon, who has already started to beef up his recruiting presence in Baltimore by meeting with city officials, is interested in bringing the Terps back to Baltimore if the university can swing it financially. Maryland plays in Washington every year in the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center, but Turgeon recently said that he hopes to play annually in both Baltimore and Washington or alternate years if that isn’t feasible.

ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep said today that Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his staff had to "work really hard" in the past two weeks to secure a commitment from Suitland guard Roddy Peters, who announced Tuesday that he was coming to College Park next season. Telep called the commitment from Peters "significant" in the fact that it shows the Terps will be "a local option" for top recruits, many of whom went elsewhere during the last few years of Gary Williams' 22-year career at his alma mater.

Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon impressed many people -- this sports blogger included -- during Wednesday's introductory press conference. But he made a strong impression on Lefty Driesell, who coached Maryland from 1969 to 1986, long before Turgeon was picked to replace Gary Williams. Driesell was the coach at Georgia State when Turgeon coached at conference rival Jacksonville State from 1998 to 2000. Even though Driesell mean-mugged Turgeon before games (as Turgeon pointed out Wednesday)

His team might not be in midseason form, or even early season form, but Maryland coach Mark Turgeon seems to hitting stride when assessing the Terps with his typical honesty. The first question in Thursday's news conference was about his team's starting lineup in Friday's exhibition game against Indiana (Pa.). "To be quite frank, I'm not sure I could start five guys, I'm not sure we have five guys practicing well enough to start," Turgeon said. "Don't want to go 'Hoosiers' on you, play four, play three.

The morning after Maryland's second lowest-scoring game in his two years in College Park, Mark Turgeon was uncharacteristically upbeat about his team. Despite a two-game losing streak that followed a 13-1 start, Turgeon said that he was pleased with his team's effort in Sunday's 54-47 loss to Miami. “I thought we played hard last night - really hard,” Turgeon said on Monday's ACC coaches' teleconference. “We never quit. We rebounded pretty well. I thought we competed on the road against a good team, [but]

Both Logan Aronhalt and John Auslander began their college basketball careers at other schools before coming to Maryland. But they will start their coaching careers with the Terps. Both were officially added to Mark Turgeon's coaching staff Thursday as graduate assistants. Aronhalt played the 2012-13 season at Maryland as a graduate student after transferring from Albany. Auslander played three seasons in College Park after a year at Division III Greensboro College. The two former Terps join Steve Asher, who is in his second year as a graduate assistant.

In the midst of the mass exodus that saw five players with remaining eligibility leave Maryland this past spring, Mark Turgeon took a high-profile matchup Dec. 8 against Villanova in the Jimmy V Classic at New York's Madison Square Garden off the 2014-15 schedule. At the time, Turgeon cited a “scheduling conflict” as the reason. It was more the uncertainty of what kind of team the Terps were going to put on the court after a 17-15 season, the most disappointing year in the short Turgeon Era and one of the most underachieving by Maryland in memory.

Unlike Mark Turgeon's first three years at Maryland, when a lack of early-season road experience and not many tough non-league games left his men's basketball team a little ill-prepared for what it would face in the ACC, the Terps should be more battle-tested when they start play in the Big Ten. Unlike Maryland's final season in the ACC, most of the Big Ten's marquee programs will be coming to College Park. The 2014-15 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday night on the Big Ten Network, includes a previously announced first-round matchup against Arizona State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Nov. 24 as well as a home game against longtime rival Virginia on Dec. 3 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Trayvon Reed's career as a Maryland basketball player has ended before it even began, after his arrest Wednesday night in College Park caused the athletic department to prohibit him from enrolling in classes. In a brief statement released Friday by the athletic department, Maryland men's coach Mark Turgeon said “Trayvon failed to meet the standards that are required by the university athletics department.” When reached by telephone, Turgeon declined to comment on the charges pending against the 7-foot-1 center, including second-degree assault, second degree assault of a police officer, theft under $100 and resisting arrest.

Editor's note: Each week,  InsideMDSports.com  provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. The past month was slow for hoops recruiting, thanks to the NCAA's limitation of early "open" periods. But with coaches allowed to hit the road again beginning last week, the pace in the class of 2015 has picked up considerably. Because of his growing interest in St. James point guard Justin Robinson , it seems Terps coach Mark Turgeon didn't press for a commitment from Kevin Dorsey . New offers Maryland handed out a couple of offers Tuesday to a pair of top-50 guards in Eric Davis and Prince Ali . It initially was thought that Mark Turgeon wouldn't pursue guards in 2015, but the transfers of Seth Allen and Roddy Peters, combined with transfer Terry Henderson's selection of North Carolina State, has him in the market for at least one and perhaps two in this recruiting class.

"Somebody I work with had an ACC basketball lanyard and we were like, 'This is retro now,'" the 22-year-old Austin said. "We need to update, get with the times.

I was curious what Maryland coach Mark Turgeon was going to say with a day to reflect on Sunday's 90-83 loss to Oregon State at Comcast Center. Since Turgeon is not scheduled to talk with the media until Tuesday morning, I tuned in his weekly radio show to listen. Here were some of his observations: On his team's 1-2 start "It's not the way we wanted to start the season obviously, but we played a really good UConn team and came up one point short and last night we really didn't play well.

 Coaching changes are not only good for college basketball programs, they are good for players. If the retirement of Gary Williams and the hiring of Mark Turgeon has helped reinvigorate the Terps when it comes to recruiting, it has also benefited junior forward James Padgett more than any other player. Maybe Padgett would have emerged after two disappointing years if Williams was still in College Park, but listening to Padgett talk earlier this season and watching him perform for the past month leads to me to believe that Turgeon has much to do with the leap Maryland's hardest-working player has taken from a bust to an offensive-rebounding beast.
