Just when we all thought that we already knew the colleges that Lance Stephenson was going to choose from this upcoming spring, this past weekend proved us wrong.
Stephenson made a surprise official visit to the University of Maryland, a school that he hasn’t even mentioned as a possible destination at all. The college list that he has continuously given the media as of late has been St. John’s, Kansas, USC and Memphis.
According to the Washington Post, there were fans awaiting the arrival of Stephenson at the Comcast Center with excitement as he attended the Terrapins’ game against Miami during his official visit on Saturday night.
The 6-5 guard is looked upon as one of the top seniors in the country. He is without a doubt the most known player in his class. He would definitely be a huge gain for Maryland, who has missed the NCAA tournament in three of the last four seasons.
Just last weekend, Stephenson made it clear to MSG Network in a halftime interview that he no longer viewed going to Europe as an option for him.
Stephenson’s classmate James Padgett at Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, New York, committed to Maryland at the beginning of the high school season.
It’s going to be very interesting to see if Maryland from now on will be listed by Stephenson as a college option.
