Jahmir Young will offer a significant boost for Maryland last year as the second-team All-Big Ten guard told Rudy Gersten that he would return to college.

“I love Maryland. This is home. We have unfinished business and I can’t wait to get back to work,” he said.

Young himself confirmed it with a tweet after the veteran was one of 10 active NCAA players with 1,900+ points, 600+ rebounds and 350+ assists (1974, 619, 366). He reached double figures in 31 games during the season (106 for his career) and hit 20 or more points in 9 games (41 for career). Overall Young started 119 career games (Charlotte and Maryland combined) posting a 16.5 scoring average over 4 years.

This is tremendous news for Maryland, as the 6-foot-1 guard, who averaged team-highs of 15.8 points, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals, along with 4.6 rebounds this past season, should be in line to be named an all-Big Ten selection to start next season. Maryland, similarly, should be a top-25 team to begin next season.
