Michal Cekovsky, the 7-foot Slovakian who officially signed with Maryland last month, will start working out with the team later this week, Terps coach Mark Turgeon wrote in a text message to The Baltimore Sun Tuesday.
Turgeon said that Cekovsky “got his student visa [Monday] and should be in town on Thursday or Friday."
Transfer Robert Carter, a 6-foot-8, 247-pound forward who played his first two seasons at Georgia Tech, “gets in on Sunday," Turgeon texted.

The Terps, who began summer workouts on June 2, have also been without freshman center Trayvon Reed.
The 7-1 1/2 Reed, who broke his ankle while playing softball at the New Jersey high school where he spent his senior year, is expected to be sidelined for two to three months.
