Maryland spent a considerable amount of time recruiting Faust, a four-star prospect. Bino Ranson, a first year assistant at Maryland, and Keith Booth were the point men on his recruitment.
Faust also strongly considered Marquette, Villanova, Florida State and Oregon State.
With the coming commitment by Faust, Maryland will now have a pair of 2011 prospects on board. Faust joins three-star point guard Sterling Gibbs to make up their two-man recruiting class.
Faust, a four-star recruit, is ranked No. 41 overall in the class of 2011.
