Maryland Minute 4.7.14 -- Terps' roster expected to 'remain pretty much intact' (or not)

Despite wildfire internet rumors to the contrary, it appears Maryland may actually return everyone for next season.

Thoughts on Maryland women in Final Four, Melo Trimble and men's coaching staff - Page 2 -
"There have been rumors that Cleare would leave after the season, but so far, no current players have asked for a release from their scholarship, according to those with knowledge of the situation. Spinelli has been a candidate for head coaching jobs in the past, and Ranson seems to be a potential candidate at Coppin State. As for the players, it appears that the roster will remain pretty much intact. Junior forward Evan Smotrycz would be eligible to transfer after he graduates this spring, but I doubt he wants to transfer again after coming to Maryland from Michigan a couple of years ago. Ditto for junior forward Jon Graham. Junior swingman Nick Faust is not on target to graduate early, according to a team source."

So that should end a whole lot of speculation (and start some new speculation as well!).
