Sterling Gibbs To Ask For Release From Maryland Basketball, AAU Coach Confirms

In his introductory press conference, new Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon said his goal was to keep all of outgoing coach Gary Williams' recruits. It appears that goal is not going to happen. Sterling Gibbs, a point guard from New Jersey, is expected to ask for a release from his letter of intent, according to his AAU coach.

Gary Charles confirms Sterling Gibbs has asked for his release from Maryland    

Previously, Gibbs had said he was leaving, then clarified to say he wasn't sure what he was doing. Now, it appears he might indeed be leaving.

Gibbs' loss would not be incredibly significant because the Terps already have Terrell Stoglin and Pe'Shon Howard playing the point guard position, but it is still a bit of a setback if he were to leave Maryland. The major recruit is still Baltimore's Nick Fault, and it's not clear what he will do in light of the coaching change.
