He has so far. And it could put the Terps in an interesting predicament come next season, when barring any early departures or transfers, the team's scholarship limit will be filled by a four-player recruiting class currently ranked in the top 5 nationally.

It seems obvious listening to Turgeon that Graham — who was put a on scholarship this year with no guarantees for next season — will certainly have a place at Maryland for the remainder of his college career.

"He's a great kid, a great teammate," Turgeon said. "I'm really happy for Jon. He didn't say a word [when he wasn't playing much], he's paid his dues, and now he's feeling more comfortable and he's really helping us."
