Heading into the all-important July recruiting period, we take a look at recruiting needs and game plans for the top 25 programs in college basketball. Next up, the Maryland Terrapins.

Where they are: The offseason situation could have been much worse for Mark Turgeon and the Terps; They could have lost their entire starting lineup. Instead, Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, who had a disappointing second half of last season, opted to return to school after going through the draft process. He’ll be the key cog in a revamped roster that includes the return of Dion Wiley and a handful of freshmen that could also see extended minutes after the departure of Diamond Stone, Robert Carter, Jake Layman and Rasheed Sulaimon. Returnees such as wing shooter Jared Nickens and big men Damonte Dodd and Michal Cekovsky could also see larger roles with plenty of available minutes up for grabs. Maryland also added fifth-year transfer L.G. Gill from Duquesne, who was extremely important to fill the power forward spot vacated by Carter.
