Steve Goins officially Joins Terps!

Steve Goins, the 6'10'' Chicago native have officially been cleared to join the Maryland Men's basketball team for the upcoming season, as reported by the Diamondback.

Goins will be the 12th player under scholarship for the Terps, leaving one spot open for the upcoming season. It has been rumored that Korean player Jin Soo Kim will be that player once he is also cleared for eligibility by the NCAA.

Steve Goins averaged 14 points and 11 rebounds in his final high school season. Goins will be listed as the tallest player on the Terp's roster and will have to help bolster a depleted frontcourt. Braxton Dupree and Jerome Burney figure to get the majority of the minutes.
Goins is thought to be a raw talent as of right now, but the Terps will definitely need some minutes from the big guy.
It will be interesting to see how the Terps starting lineup shakes out as of now. If they want to go small, I could see the lineup looking like this:
C Braxton Dupree
F Lance Milbourne
F Cliff Tucker
G Greivis Vasquez
G Eric Hayes
Or if they want to go bigger:
C Braxton Dupree
F Jerome Burney
F Landon Milbourne
G Greivis Vasquez
G Eric Hayes.
Stay tuned for more Men's Hoops news!
