Maryland fans were disappointed last week upon hearing that 2014 PF Trayvon Reed will not be playing for the Terrapins this fall. On the bright side, rumors are emerging that Maryland has landed a big from Croatia to help fill the void.
As I was told, one of the European top prospects Ivan Bender (206, 1995.) chose University of Maryland and will play for @TerrapinHoops— Igor Marinovic (@sofoklo13) August 1, 2014
Local information on Bender is scarce, but he is mentioned along with his brother, Dragan, in an article from SI.
We'll have more on Bender as the situation develops.
