Maryland one of many schools to reach out to Presbyterian forward DeSean Murray, who announced this week that he'll be transferring. According to ESPN's Jeff Borzello, the Terrapins, along with Auburn, Boston College, Florida Gulf Coast, VCU and Wake Forest are a handful of the schools who have reached out to the sophomore:

Murray averaged over 20 points per game this season, and did so without making a single three point basket. He does a great job of getting to the free throw line, where he had 211 attempts this season, making 163 of them (77.3%). Murray seems to do the majority of his scoring in the paint, showing a willingness to back down a player and also be active around the basket. He's also very good at forcing steals, averaging two per game. His steal percentage this season was 3.7, which ranked 35th nationally, according to Ken Pomeroy.

Murray would have to sit out a season, per NCAA transfer rules, but would have two years of eligibility remaining.
