Angel Reese is a Terp.
The nation’s No. 2 girls basketball player according to ESPN, Reese announced her commitment to the Terps on Friday night, choosing them over finalists Syracuse and Southern Cal. The 6-foot-3 win from Baltimore’s St. Frances Academy, who averaged 22.6 points and 19.3 rebounds last season, is arguably the biggest score on Brenda Frese’s decorated recruiting resumé.
“The visit was good. It’s only 40 minutes away but it didn’t feel that close. The team chemistry was really good, and the coaches I can see myself with,” she said. “I can see myself winning a national championship there. I have the option of having all my friends and family seeing me play,” Reese told InsideMDSports last month.

“With her unique abilities, I think that’s the forward progression of women’s basketball today where you have a player of her size — 6-foot-3 — that can handle the ball, can pass it, score from different areas and defend every position. That in itself is a pleasure to watch, a pleasure to coach,” St. Frances coach Jerome Shelton told the Baltimore Sun.. “She’s a hard worker and she’s dedicated to not only being a good student but also an athlete that continues to refine certain parts of her game every year.”
Reese’s younger brother, St. Frances junior center Julian Reese, is a prospect for Mark Turgeon and joined his sister on her official visit. The two have talked about attending the same college.
“It’s up to him. If he does that, that’ll be cool,” she said.
