Transfer F Anthony Tarke to visit Maryland basketball this week

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Basketball: New Jersey Tech at Minnesota Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland men’s basketball will host sophomore transfer Anthony Tarke today, according to Jon Rothstein.

A former Gaithersburg High School product, Tarke did a prep year at New Jersey’s Coastal Academy before heading to NJIT. After being under-recruited out of high school, he averaged 12.7 points per game in two seasons, garnering a bevy of high-major interest.

He’s a sit-one, play-two prospect, and nearly 30 schools expressed an interest in Tarke when he announced his intentions. He’s oming off a visit to South Alabama, where former Maryland director of Basketball operations Nima Omidvar is a newly-minted assistant coach. Tarke’s also been to George Washington and will visit UTEP and South Florida after College Park. A visit to St. Bonaventure was scheduled for Thursday but has been was cancelled.

The 6’6, 205-pound forward upped his scoring to 15.2 points per game in 2017-18 from 9.9 his freshman year, though his three-point percentage dropped to 28.7 percent from 36.5 percent as he launched 4.9 triples a game. Tarke also grabbed 6.2 boards and added 1.3 steals per game.

With just one scholarship officially open at the moment, it looks like Maryland wants to use it to invest in a replacement for Kevin Huerter next summer. Huerter seems likely to be off to the NBA after next season, currently testing the process at the moment. Pittsburgh’s Parker Stewart is a priority in that sense, but Tarke also fits the bill.
