With Anderson expected to be in, Adala Moto likely is out for Terps

Got in touch with Episcopal basketball coach Jimmy Fitzpatrick, who said that he assumes that if Justin Anderson commits to Maryland as expected, it seems unlikely the Terrapins will continue recruiting Episcopal junior forward Arnaud Adala Moto because the two project to play similar positions in college.

Adala Moto was interested in Maryland, but the Terrapins had yet to offer a scholarship. Fitzpatrick said he had not heard recently from Maryland -- perhaps an indication that the Terrapins knew where they stood with Anderson.

Maryland Coach Gary Williams had made a trip to Alexandria last month to scout Adala Moto.

“Arnaud and I liked Gary, but it never seemed that serious,” Fitzpatrick wrote in a text message. “Glad for Justin and Maryland. Seems like a great fit!”
