Perry, a 5-foot-11 guard/forward, averaged 17.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 3.2 steals in leading her team to a 29-2 record, the No. 2 ranking in the D.C. area and the city championship.

"We are very excited about Ginji joining our program," Maryland coach Chris Weller said. "She is a national level player who will bring tremendous recognition to both Maryland and the strength of our local high school programs."

Maryland signed one player during the early signing period in November -- Meghan McIntyre of Mainland High in Linwood, N.J.
