Joshua Tomaic’s career in College Park has officially come to an end, as the the 6’10 forward announced his transfer to San Diego State University Thursday.

The Spanish-native entered the transfer portal on April 20th, leaving the potential for a return open before ultimately deciding to join head coach Brian Dutcher and the Aztecs. Tomaic now joins a San Diego State team that returns three starters from a season ago, in which they went 30-2 and were in position for a deep tournament run.

“My first thought was to go lower (level),” Tomaic told The San Diego Union-Tribune. “It was a little surprise. I did not expect a school like San Diego State to reach out to me ... But with Coach Dutcher, I felt like there was some type of connection.”

After averaging 8.8 minutes per game in the 2018-19 season, Tomaic saw his playing time shrink to just 3.3 minutes per game last season. Appearing in six fewer games as well, he averaged just 0.4 points and 0.8 rebounds per game.

With Tomaic’s departure now official, the Terps have one player on the roster taller than 6’8: rising sophomore Chol Marial. Tomaic also becomes the fourth player to join another program in the last three months, with Makhi Mitchell, Makhel Mitchell and Ricky Lindo Jr. each finding new homes as well.
