“Juju is very talented and has a tremendous upside on both sides of the court,” Terps head coach Mark Turgeon said. “He’s a great defender and shot blocker. Across the board, we’ve had some pretty good shot blockers here at Maryland, whether it was Bruno or Stix or Len. Julian is going to give us that.”
