Early Monday morning the Terrapins' 2011-2012 leading scorer and second-team All-ACC point guard, Terrell Stoglin, declared for the NBA Draft.
After being suspended by the university for a year for failing multiple drug tests (the substance in question was marijuana), Stoglin made the decision to move on to the NBA rather than sit out the season.
The news came as a shock to Maryland fans as earlier in the year the sophomore had dispelled rumors that he would be leaving the team.
The departure of the sophomore phenom leaves a huge gap in the 2012-2013 Terps roster, as Stoglin was going to be counted on to carry much of the offensive scoring load.
Several current and future Maryland players will have to step up in order for the Terps to be competitive in next year's season.
