One week after Maryland granted recruit Nick Faust a release from his letter-of-intent, the Terrapins announced Thursday morning that Faust has reaffirmed his commitment to the program.

Faust, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Baltimore who was considered the top signee of Gary Williams’s final recruiting class, decided to stick with Maryland after meeting with new coach Mark Turgeon.

“I’m excited to welcome Nick and his family back to the Maryland Basketball family,” Turgeon said in a news release issued by the school. “Nick represents the kind of student-athlete we want to recruit. He is a high-character kid, has tremendous God-given talent and he has worked hard to achieve success in his basketball career.”

Point guard Sterling Gibbs, who originally signed with Maryland, now is headed to Texas after receiving a release from his letter-of-intent. German forward Martin Breunig also received a release from his letter-of-intent and has visited Washington, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and has received interest from a host of schools.
