Maryland men's basketball has added its fourth transfer commitment of the offseason.

The program announced on Tuesday afternoon that it will be adding Arizona State forward Pavlo Dziuba to its roster ahead of the 2021-22 season.

“We are excited to welcome Pavlo to our program from Arizona State, where he was one of the youngest players in Division I men’s basketball last season,” Maryland men’s basketball head coach Mark Turgeon said in a release. “Pavlo has tremendous upside and possesses the size and skill to significantly bolster our frontcourt. We look forward to him joining us in College Park.”

Dziuba had a quiet season with the Sun Devils seeing action in just eight games. He played a season-high ten minutes in Arizona State’s overtime loss to UCLA on Jan. 7.

Dziuba will turn 18 on July 3 and was the youngest Division I men’s basketball player last season. He is also the first Ukrainian on the Terps’ roster since Alex Len.

Prior to playing at Arizona State, the Ukrainian native had a strong showing at the 2019 FIBA U16 European Championship B. Dziuba averaged 13.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game.

Dziuba was a four-star recruit per 247Sports, ranked the No. 111 player in his class and the No. 21 power forward.
