Tonight, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that 6'4" (athletic and versatile!) Center Alicia DeVaughn has given Coach Brenda Frese her verbal commitment to join the Maryland basketball family beginning with the 2010 academic year.
Alicia, a senior at Ely High in Broward County, is an All-State selection from Florida. She was nationally-ranked and highly sought after by many major programs. Her choice of Maryland is yet another boost to Coach B's already outstanding incoming class of 2010.
The Sentinel's Christy Cabrera Chirinos tells us that
Saturday night while on a visit to Maryland, she [Alicia] gave the Terrapins a verbal commitment."I just really loved it up there and you could see they were definitely a family," DeVaughn said. "They were more together and you could see the players really love basketball and coach [Brenda] Frese."We're happy that Alicia has found a program that she "loves". . . and as fans, we're happy that program just happens to be Maryland!
Welcome -- and congratulations -- Alicia! We can't wait to see you suit up for the Terps next season!
