It’s been a while since the last recruiting notebook here on Prep Hoops Maryland, but as we prepare for September, commitments and visits are on the horizon. We’ll continue to ramp up the recruiting updates going forward, but here are some nuggets that we’ve gathered in the past few weeks.

COMMITMENTS

2021 Mt. Carmel/Team Melo center Kevin Kalu Kevin Kalu 6'10" | C Mt. Carmel | 2021 State MD announced his commitment to UTEP. The 6-foot-8 big man was a force in the shortened season last winter for the Cougars and won BCL Defensive Player of the Year. This spring and summer while running with Team Melo on the EYBL Circuit, Kalu caught the eyes of mid major program with his relentless motor, his willingness to dunk anything around the rim and his communication on the defensive end. 

2022 Gonzaga/DC Premier wing Jared Turner Jared Turner 6'7" | SF Gonzaga | 2022 State MD committed to Northeastern. In Turner, the Huskies are getting a 6-foot-7 wing who can make shots from the perimeter, and high IQ player and a hardworking defensive weapon. Turner was a key piece for DC Premier this spring and summer acting as a catalyst on the defensive end. He seems to always be in the right spot at the right time.
