Less than three months before the start of the season, Maryland men’s basketball has made another addition to its 2018 recruiting class, with three-star forward Ricky Lindo reclassifying and committing to the Terps on Wednesday afternoon.
Woodrow Wilson (DC) & @DC_Premier_ forward Ricky Lindo has committed to Maryland per a source & will reportedly enroll immediately as a member of the 2018 class. Was previously planning to do a post-grad year.

A 6-foot-7 small forward, Lindo had been a member of the 2019 class slated to spend the coming year at Northfield Mount Hermon, a college prep school in Massachusetts. But Mark Turgeon offered him a scholarship two weeks ago after Mississippi State transfer Schnider Herard left the program.
Lindo becomes the sixth member of the Terps’ 2018 class, which 247Sports ranked No. 7 in the country prior to his arrival. The D.C. native received offers from several other schools, including George Washington, La Salle and James Madison.
Lindo offers Mark Turgeon another option on the wing to go along with Aaron Wiggins, Trace Ramsey and Joshua Tomaic. Turgeon still has another scholarship available, so he could make another addition before the season begins in November.
