Report: Maryland gets a commitment from top 50 recruit Michal Cekovsky

Maryland has landed a commitment from Michal Cekovsky, a top 50 recruit from Slovakia that was playing his high school ball for the Canarias Basketball Academy in Spain.

The news was first reported by

Cekovsky is a versatile seven-footer that picked the Terps over the likes of Florida and Arizona. “Michal’s upside is off the charts,” Canarias coach Rob Orellana told in February. “His skillset at 7-feet makes him a unique player. Add to that the fact he is a tireless worker. No question he will be a major impact player at a high-major program.”

This creates a bit of an issue for the Terps, however. They now have 16 players scheduled to be on scholarship for the 2014-2015 season. One of them, Varun Ram, is a former walk-on that will likely be put back on walk-on status, but that still means that two of those players will not be playing for the Terps this season.

Cekovsky joins a recruiting class that already includes Romelo Trimble, Dion Wiley, Trayvon Reed and Jared Nickens.

    “…two of those players will not be playing for the Terps this season.”
    Along with Ram, Jonathan Graham (Ernie’s son) will lose his scholly.
    That leaves one current player to transfer (likely) or one incoming freshman to spend a post-grad year prepping as Dodd did (possibly).
