Maryland Basketball Recruiting: Haukur Palsson Commits

March 20, 2010

Maryland is bringing in several players for the 2010 class, the most recent of which is 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 his high school basketball in Florida. Known mostly as a forward, Palsson is multipositional, 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:
