Duquesne graduate transfer L.G. Gill to visit Maryland in May, per report

The Terps have a lot of bodies to replace. He would help.

In search of a replacement for Jake Layman and Robert Carter Jr., Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon and staff will see Duquesne graduate transfer L.G. Gill in College Park during the first week of May, per Jon Rothstein. The 6'7 forward will officially visit Marquette on April 29, and has met with Texas, East Carolina and Iowa State. He is immediately eligible for the 2016-17 season.

Gill's given name is Charles, and his nickname L.G. stands for "Little Gill." He played 94 games across three seasons with the Dukes. Last season his numbers spiked as he averaged 10.1 points and 6.5 rebounds, playing 30 minutes per game. He may not be the deep-ball threat that Layman was, but he shot 34.4 percent from on 4.5 attempts per game.

Turgeon has had success in the transfer market before, landing Dez Wells, Carter and Rasheed Sulaimon en route to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in the past two seasons. He'll need to have another big summer to replace the four or five starters who are leaving Maryland the draft.
