Earlier this week, the Maryland Terrapins got some exciting news as Old Dominion transfer Xavier Green announced that he would be committing to the program. Green adds a nice depth piece to Maryland’s backcourt and wing groups for what could be a loaded Terp squad.

Green spent four seasons at Old Dominion before transferring, averaging 6.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game in his final season with the program. He likewise ranked sixth in Conference USA in percentage of minutes played and 24th in three-point percentage at 34.9 percent. The highlight of his career with the Monarchs was winning the 2019 Conference USA Tournament.
Considering the significant roster overhauls occurring across college basketball, it’s hard to say how Green might contribute for next year’s Terps. However, Green should be able to provide a reliable depth option on the wing to help fill the void left by Aaron Wiggins. He and Hakim Hart should make a nice duo. Adding a piece like Green should alleviate some of the depth concerns.
Mark Turgeon and his staff likely aren’t done this offseason, but Terp fans have to be excited about where things sit at the moment.
