The ACC's leading scorer says that he will return to Maryland for his junior season.
Terrell Stoglin's up-and-down 2011-12 season saw him become the leading scorer in the ACC with 21.6 points per game. But he was also left off the All-ACC First Team, experienced a tumultuous relationship with new head coach Mark Turgeon, and said that he was considering turning pro after Maryland's season ended with an ACC Tournament loss to North Carolina.
Well, he's clearly thought about it long enough, since he posted this message to his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon.

Stoglin's return would be a massive relief for Turgeon, who will get his leading scorer back to join a roster that will have only graduated three seniors from last year (guards Berend Weijs, Sean Mosley, and Jon Dillard). Look for more improvement from the Terrapins in Turgeon's second year.
