Maryland has been mentioned in connection with Twymond Howard for several months now, but the Terps are far from the only program to have made contact with the Pearl (Miss.) small forward.
Howard, a four-star prospect, said in a phone interview from the NBPA Top 100 Camp in Charlottesville, Va., last week that he is hearing from several high-major programs.
"Arkansas [has] been on me, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Auburn," Howard said. "Most of the SEC schools have been talking to me. [Plus] Wake Forest, West Virginia."Regarding Maryland, Howard said, "They hit me up whenever they can call. All the schools have when they can."
Rated the No. 66 player and No. 16 small forward by Rivals.com, the 6-foot-6, 205-pound rising senior said education will be a big factor in his decision, and that location is "not a big problem."
Howard said most programs like his motor. Based on what he's heard, Howard likes Maryland's "style of play."
"I can see myself going there," Howard said of Maryland. "But I haven't really planned a visit yet."
