Maryland men's basketball prospect Sean Mosley is expected to qualify academically under NCAA guidelines, an athletic department official said last week.
Kathleen Worthington, Maryland's senior associate athletic director, said that she has seen Mosley's recent SAT and ACT scores and believes the 6-foot-4 guard from St. Frances will be approved by the NCAA Clearinghouse this summer.
It's the first piece of good news recently for Maryland coach Gary Williams, who in the past six weeks has seen two potential starters, center Gus Gilchrist and guard Tyree Evans, ask to be released from their scholarship commitments.
Mosley, who was The Baltimore Sun's Player of the Year as a senior at St. Frances, is expected to be a significant contributor as a freshman, giving the Terps the shooting and athleticism they lacked at the wing guard position last season.
Mosley would become Maryland's 10th scholarship player. Williams seemed confident that he will sign a couple of more players before the end of the summer.
