Layman just graduated from King Phillip this month and will bring his talents to College Park to play at the University of Maryland in the fall.
The 6'8 forward was named the inaugural HockomockSports.com Basketball Player of the Year this past season. In the 2011-2012 season, Layman averaged 26.5 points, 15 rebounds, and 5.8 blocks. The Warriors reached the D2 South Finals in Layman's junior season, but were knocked out in the quarter finals this past season.
Layman is one of 12 players to make the cut. The team will play their first game June 16 against the U.S. Virgin Islands. They will play Mexico and host-country Brazil in the following two days. If successful, the squad will qualify for the 2013 FIBAs U19 World Championship.
