Dez Wells Officially Admitted To University Of Maryland

Dez Wells has been officially admitted to the University of Maryland on Friday. Wells has signed a financial aid agreement with Maryland and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining. Maryland will petition the NCAA for a waiver to allow Wells to play immediately, according to The Washington Post's Alex Prewitt.

Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon said about Wells:

"I have followed Dez for the past three years and I know he will be a good student-athlete and teammate. [Assistant coach] Bino Ranson was very active in his recruitment at Xavier and has also built a strong relationship with Dez over the past several years. This is a new beginning and a fresh start for Dez at Maryland and were looking forward to him joining us on campus."

Before Wells was expelled from Xavier, the guard-forward started 32 games, averaging 9.8 points and 4.9 rebounds per game en route to being named the 2012 Sporting News A-10 Freshman of the Year. Wells was also on the 2012 A-10 All-Rookie team.
