More news about potential grad transfers the Terps could bring in for next season.

NCAA Basketball: Maryland at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland basketball has three scholarships open, and the Terps could use some depth both in the frontcourt and on the wing. They could look to the grad transfer market to fill one or two of the available spots with a player who can contribute immediately. Here’s an updated list of all the grad transfers available, as well as where some have already signed.

(You’ll notice Jaylen Brantley is on the list, but even though he’s allowed to return to the Terps, he isn’t expected to.)

An update on Maryland targets

C Sean Obi, Duke: Obi visited College Park Monday, and CBS’s Jon Rothstein reports he’ll decide between Maryland and Georgetown. His decision could come either Wednesday night or Thursday, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. Obi averaged near a double-double his freshman year at Rice before transferring to Duke and only playing 10 games since, during the 2015-16 season. He would be a solid addition to a Terps frontcourt that needs another big.

G Mark Alstork, Wright State: Alstork was recruited by Maryland assistant coach Bino Ranson out of high school, but wasn’t offered a scholarship. After Alstork averaged 19 points, almost five rebounds, and 3.5 assists for Wright State last season, and Ranson’s started recruiting him again as a grad transfer. No reports have come saying he’ll visit Maryland, though. He has an official visit scheduled with Pitt on May 5, and Goodman reported that he met with Pitt coach Kevin Stallings Tuesday, so Terps fans shouldn’t get their hopes up.

G Stephan Jiggets (now at South Florida): Jiggets is a Forestville, Maryland native that spent his high school career at Bishop McNamara. He originally committed to Albany before transferring to Fairleigh Dickinson after his first semester. Now he’ll spend his final season at South Florida, where he’ll link up with fellow grad transfers Payton Banks and Terrence Samuel from Penn State. They’ll all suit up for new Bulls coach Brian Gregory next season.

Other than Obi, things seem quiet

As of now, nothing links Maryland to any other available grad transfers. We’ll be on the lookout for news about Obi, but efforts with the other players listed and the Ontario connection are currently looking fruitless.
