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.

COLLEGE PARK  -  This is not how Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon envisioned the Terps would enter the Big Ten Conference. Coming off a disappointing 17-15 season and having lost half his scholarship players in a tumultuous four-week stretch this spring, Turgeon begins his fourth year at Maryland under increased scrutiny and facing more pressure than at any other point in his coaching career. Despite speculation that he finds himself on the proverbial hot seat for the first time in his 17 seasons as a Division I head coach, Turgeon said that what the Terps lost in experience with the departures of five transfers, they more than make up for in cohesiveness.

Former Maryland men's basketball assistant coach Dalonte Hill was sentenced Wednesday to a week in jail after pleading guilty in Howard County to driving while impaired. The October incident led to his resignation. Circuit Court judge Richard S. Bernhardt also sentenced Hill to a year's probation, which would be supervised if Hill remains in the state and unsupervised if he were to get a job out of state. Hill, 35, resigned from Maryland in November, a little more than a month after he was cited for drunk driving.

At a time when the stability of Maryland's men's basketball program has been in question, Robert Carter may have provided the best form of support for embattled coach Mark Turgeon. The 6-foot-8, 247-pound power forward - considered one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's most promising big men before announcing plans to transfer - signed with the Terps on Friday. He then praised Turgeon for his vision and said he wasn't concerned about the fact that five scholarship players transferred from Maryland after the season “I feel like he's doing and they're doing what's best for the program,” Carter said of Turgeon, who just completed his third season at Maryland.
