Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon has hired well-known recruiter Dalonte Hill from Kansas State, according to a source close to the program. Hill's background in District of Columbia summer-league play had helped him lure significant talent to Kansas State.
Turgeon is also retaining Bino Ranson -- an assistant coach under the now-retired Gary Williams with deep Baltimore ties, .
And Turgeon is hiring Scott Spinelli -- an assistant under Turgeon at Texas A&M and Wichita State -- to also be an assistant in College Park.
The deals are now being finalized.
Hill, once a major player in the DC Assualt AAU program, helped bring Michael Beasley, Wally Judge and others from Washington.
