Montrose Christian small forward Justin Anderson said he was "a little bit" surprised when he heard about Gary Williams' sudden retirement Thursday, but the Terps commitment was "happy" for the longtime coach.
“I think it’s a great thing for Coach. He put in a lot of time, definitely deserves it. I think it’s a great day for him and his family,” Anderson said. “He’s been doing this for a long time and I think he’s considered one of the all-time greats.”
Anderson, a 6-foot-7 junior, committed to Maryland in March. He plans on discussing his college future with his family and Mustangs coach Stu Vetter when there is something substantive to discuss.
“I’m still committed to the University of Maryland,” Anderson said. “As of right now, I’ll just wait and see who the new coach is and make my decision later on.”
