Maryland is bringing in several players for the 2010 class, with the most recent being Haukur Palsson (SF, 6′6″,2010). Palsson is the Terps’ fifth recruit in the class.

Palsson is a native of Iceland, although this season he’s playing high school basketball in Florida. Known mostly as a forward, Palsson is multi-positional, a character that head coach Gary Williams often looks for. He will likely play at the SF spot or even move to the SG at times.

Palsson is also a buy-in defender and will add to the style of pressure that Maryland employs.

Here’s some very brief video of Palsson:
