Freshman point guard Melo Trimble and junior forward Jake Layman will “go through the process” of seeing where they might be taken in the NBA draft before making a decision about returning to Maryland next season, a source familiar with their situation said Saturday.
Jaylen Brantley had kept the secret for a couple of weeks, not telling any of his future teammates at Maryland or even men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon. The secret was about Diamond Stone.
The next Maryland basketball season is eight months away, which means there's plenty of time for the roster to change with a couple of more additions and, given the nature of the business, a couple of possible subtractions.
Robert Stone was at his home in Milwaukee on Friday night when he got a text message from his son, Diamond.
Orioles scouting director Gary Rajsich first saw Pat Connaughton pitch in person last May in College Park.
UPDATE (7:25): Maryland point guard Melo Trimble suffered a concussion Sunday night against West Virginia, a men's basketball team spokesman said Monday night, and will continue to be monitored.
