The transfer market has been extremely kind to the Maryland Terrapins in recent years.
Coach Mark Turgeon is hosting another transfer in former Kansas guard Andrew White on Saturday for an official visit, according to CBSSports’ Jon Rothstein.

White is also considering Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Virginia Tech. As Rothstein notes, the Kansas transfer has already visited Nebraska and Notre Dame.
According to InsideMDSports, White is expected to “make a decision real soon.” The 6’6 guard was a top-60 recruit back in 2012, and has the pedigree to be an impact player in a new setting.
White sat behind phenom Cleveland Cavaliers (for now) guard Andrew Wiggins this past season in Lawrence. The Richmond native averaged 2.4 points-per-game and 1.2 rebounds-per-game in limited minutes this past season. White’s season-high was a 13-point effort against Towson in a 30-point Jayhawk win on Nov. 22. The former top recruit has the potential to be a force from the perimeter and as a slasher.
Much like new Maryland forward Robert Carter Jr., White will likely have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules. With guard Dez Wells set to graduate after this coming season, the addition of White would be a great add to the Terps backcourt.
