Maryland fans are celebrating here on this Final Four Saturday as Mark Turgeon and his staff have landed commitments from two highly-coveted transfers in Fatts Russell from Rhode Island and Qudus Wahab and Georgetown.
Wahab, a 6-foot-11, 237-pound rising junior, was a key piece of Georgetown’s success this season as he averaged 12.7 points and 8.2 rebounds. He finished the year on a strong note with a selection to the Big East All-Tournament team following the Hoyas’ epic run in Madison Square Garden, and will arrive in College Park projected to compete for starter’s minutes at center in 2022.
An hour after landing the top center available in the transfer portal, Maryland got its commitment from Russell, the top point guard available. The 5-foot-10 rising senior was a star for Rhode Island this year, leading the team in points (14.7), assists (4.5) and steals (1.9). Like Wahab, Russell will be eligible immediately and should expect to be a key contributor for the team next season.
