We’ve said all along that Nate Britt (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga) is a litmus test recruit for new Maryland coach Mark Turgeon.

Former coach Gary Williams did not have a token relationship with D.C. Assault -- which Britt plays AAU for. In fact, the last three Assault point guards (Nolan Smith, Tyler Thornton, Quinn Cook) committed to the Terrapins rival, Duke.

For Turgeon, there’s good news and bad news regarding Britt. Duke hasn’t entered the mix for him and may not. Mike Krzyzewski did watch him this summer, but the Blue Devils -- to this point -- have not been to D.C. to see him this fall. Turgeon himself has been over twice as has North Carolina’s Roy Williams plus Georgetown’s John Thompson and Virginia’s Tony Bennett. Arizona’s Sean Miller has been once and plans a return trip. Villanova coach Jay Wright hasn’t come yet but the Wildcats are on the list.
