Stephenson suitors now down to one?

Despite an abundance of talent, Lance Stephenson's college career is still on hold. And it could be that way for a while.

Maryland – fresh off the news that do-it-all point guard Greivis Vazquez will return to school – has stopped recruiting the high school star. Yes, Gary Williams' program could use a boost. Doesn't matter. Sounds like they'll take their chances without one of 2009's elite talents. (Much to some fans' chagrin.)

Terps officials are worried about a possible fiasco with Stephenson's eligibility. He also faces a court date later this month regarding a misdemeanor sexual assault charge.

Sure, he's talented, but there's enough baggage that teams are scared of taking him. And really, who wants to get burned?

Turns out there's still one school that is recruiting Stephenson – Memphis.

Say this for the Tigers: They're willing to gamble.
