Sean Mosley

Mosley was the a part of the first class to graduate under Mark Turgeon. He was a consistent shooter with great mid-range touch and a sweet mini fro for the Terps. He averaged 10.2 points in his senior year. He currently plays in the third best league in Italy for La Fortezza Recanati. He averaged 35.4 minutes per game, 19.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and led his team to a 12-16 mark. He was the third leading scorer in Italy's LNP Silver League.

Prior to Italy, he averaged 29.2 minutes per game, 15.5 points and 6.3 rebounds for Kotwica Kolobrzeg in the top Polish League (Poland-TBL).

Berend Weijs

The Dutch center graduated from Maryland in 2012 and returned to his home country, the Netherlands, to compete in professional basketball. There, he received rookie of the year honors and was the blocks leader in both 2013 and 2014. He is a loyal player who is entering his third season with BC Apollo Amsterdam, who competes in the top league in Holland. This past season, he averaged 8.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in 29.2 minutes per game.

Logan Aronhalt

Aronhalt spent one season as a graduate student with the Terps, after coming to College Park from Albany. The spot-up knockdown shooter currently plays for Assigeco Casalpusterlengo of Italy's LNP Silver League and averaged 26.2 minutes and 10.2 points in 24 games. Mosley and Aronhalt's teams squared up twice this year. Despite Mosley's 24+ point performances in each of those games, Aronhalt's Casalpusterlengo won each by two.

James Padgett

The Maryland graduate decided to take his talent overseas to play in the top league in Finland (Korisliga). He was a major contributor to the 26-18 Uu Korihait Uusikaupunki (say that three times fast) who finished the season 26-18. Padgett played in 37 games, averaging 35.1 minutes, 15.7 points and 9.9 rebounds a game.

Earlier in the 2013-14 campaign, Padgett played for Salon Vilpas Vikings, also in the Korisliga. For the Vikings, he averaged 12.8 points and 9.3 boards.

Left to pursue a professional career

Alex Len

The 7-footer Ukraine native left Maryland for the NBA Draft after his sophomore season where he was drafted fifth overall by the Phoenix Suns. He averaged just 2 points and 2.4 rebounds a game for the 48-34 Suns, but was nursing an injured ankle.

Terrell Stoglin

Stoglin has been quite the well-traveled man in his two seasons overseas. Let's break down his past season team by team.

Played in Italy's Serie A (Italy's top league) for Cimberio Varese for five games and averaged 16.2 minutes per game, 8 points per game.

Competed in two games for Stelmet Zielona Gora of Poland's top league and averaged 14.5 minutes, 10 points per game

Played just one game for Azovmash Mariupol of the Ukraine league and had 29 points in 39 minutes.

Played 15 games in the ProA League in France for Cholet Basket. He posted 29.1 minutes, 15.6 points per game

In the 2012-2013 season, he played in 18 games for Ilysiakos Athens in Greece's top basketball league and averaged 33.2 minutes and 19.9 points.

Haukur Palsson

The sharp shooting Icelandic winger left Maryland after his freshman season in 2011. Last season he spent 30 games with Leche Rio Breogan Lugo in Spain’s second best league. He averaged 20.7 minutes a game and 6.3 points this past season. Over the last two seasons he has bounced between different teams and leagues in Spain, including a short stint in Italy.


Ashton Pankey

Pankey is the starting power forward for the Manhattan Jaspers, a team that almost upset fourth-seeded Louisville in the NCAA Tournament last season. He averaged 7.1 points a game and 4.3 boards a game, starting 21 of 33 games. Pankey is a rising junior, having redshirted his freshman year at Maryland and sitting out a year due to NCAA rules. He transferred from Maryland to be closer to his hometown in New York.

Mychal Parker

The former four-star recruit transferred from Maryland after a violation of team rules. He transferred to Georgetown College, a dominant NAIA D1 basketball program from Kentucky. He averaged 7.1 points a game in just a shed over 20 minutes per contest. There were no signs of him returning for his senior season.

Pe'Shon Howard

Similarly to Faust, Howard spent three years at Maryland. He switched coasts to tend to his ill grandmother and went to USC. There, he averaged 10.8 points, 3 assists and 30.4 minutes a game for the 11-21 Trojans. The highlight of his season came on December 22 when he drilled a buzzer beater three to lead the Trojans past the Dayton Flyers.

Nick Faust

Faust spent his first three seasons in College Park but decided to transfer for his senior season, likely because of prospective playing time cuts. He transferred to Oregon State, a team that defeated Maryland in front of President Barrack Obama, but shortly after withdrew his commitment after the Beavers' coach was fired. Faust is going to have to sit out next season no matter where he lands. He averaged 9.4 points a game for the Terps last season.

Shaquille Cleare

Cleare is another transfer player from the class of 2012 recruiting class. He will sit out next season at Texas for eligibility purposes. The big man put up 3 points a game and added 2.5 boards per contest last season.

Charles Mitchell

Mitchell is the latest Terp to transfer out of the program, announcing his departure from the university May 22. He's leaving Maryland to tend to his sick grandmother in his home state of Georgia. As a sophomore, he averaged 6.5 points and 6.3 rebounds a game. He will also likely sit out wherever he lands.

Seth Allen

While Maryland is cutting ties with the ACC, Allen is not. The starting point guard for the 13-14 Terps transferred to Virginia Tech. The rising junior will also sit out a year. As a sophomore, he was a huge addition offensively for Maryland, contributing 13.4 points a game.

Roddy Peters

The rising sophomore is taking his talents to South Florida to compete in the American Athletic Conference. The promising point guard showed flashes of great skill last year but needs to develop his ball handling abilities and decision making. He will use next season as a redshirt year. He averaged 4.1 points a game in his freshman season.

Never played for the Terps

Martin Breunig

The German forward also decommitted from Maryland upon Williams’ departure and Turgeon’s arrival. He decided on Washington before transferring to Montana. He hasn’t been very efficient, and averaged just .1 points a game in his sophomore season. He sat out last year for Montana for NCAA rules.

Sam Cassell Jr.

Cassell was a part of the 2012 recruiting class from Turgeon that now only features Jake Layman as the sole remaining Terp. Cassell never suited up a game for Maryland, after being ruled ineligible by the NCAA for taking invalidated classes in his senior year of high school at Notre Dame Prep. He spent his freshman season at Chipola College in Marianna, Fl., and averaged 18.7 points and 3.8 assists a game, and will join UConn this upcoming season.

Sterling Gibbs

Gibbs originally committed to Maryland but decommitted after Gary Williams left. He initially signed and played one season at Texas. As a true freshman for the Longhorns, he averaged just 2.7 points a game. He transferred to his hometown Seton Hall Pirates, where he sat out a year and then won a starting job. In his redshirt sophomore season, the guard averaged 13.2 points a game.
