Terps make cut for Gonzaga (D.C.) top-40 junior guard Prentiss Hubb

The Maryland men's basketball team has made the cut for another of its top Class of 2018 targets.

Gonzaga (D.C.) junior guard recruit Prentiss Hubb announced Sunday that he had cut his list to six schools: Syracuse, Virginia, Villanova, Notre Dame, Kansas and Maryland.

The 6-foot-2 Hubb is rated the No. 35 player overall and the No. 4 shooting guard in his class, according to 247Sports.com's Composite rankings. This past season, he helped lead a talented Gonzaga team to the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference tournament and Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament titles. He's classmates and teammates at the Washington school with Will Turgeon, the son of Terps coach Mark Turgeon.

Maryland, which offered him first, in October 2015, is considered the favorite to land Hubb, according to 247Sports' "Crystal Ball" predictions. Villanova also is seen as a frontrunner for him, and a decision could come this spring or summer.

Hubb's recruitment could affect the Terps' pursuit of John Carroll guard Immanuel Quickley, who last week named the hometown school as one of seven under consideration.
