UNLV small forward Dwayne Morgan is transferring, and it appears Maryland is on the Baltimore native's radar.

Having just finished his sophomore season, Morgan is looking to transfer to a school "within driving distance of Baltimore" and is "expected to consider Maryland," Jeff Ermann of Inside Maryland Sports reported on Wednesday. While UNLV is currently searching for a new head coach, Morgan is transferring due to his mother's health issues, according to IMS.

Morgan was highly recruited out of St. Frances Academy, tallying offers from Arizona Indiana, Florida, Connecticut and Georgetown, among others. He was the No. 5 small forward in the class of 2014 and the No. 23 player overall, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Morgan has yet to carve out a role for himself at UNLV, as he averaged 2.7 points per game as a freshman and 3.4 as a sophomore. The Rebels are currently searching for a new head coach, and Cincinnati's Mick Cronin is a top candidate, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

Maryland could end up losing all five of its starters to the NBA at the end of the season, so the team could end up being fairly active in the transfer market. The Terps did just add three-star small forward Micah Thomas to their recruiting class.
