Duquesne graduate transfer PF L.G. Gill commits to Maryland

Maryland has landed Duquesne graduate transfer L.G. Gill.

The 6-foot-7 power forward averaged 10.1 points and 6.5 rebounds last season for the Dukes. He will be eligible next season for a Terps team that may lose its entire starting lineup.

"I felt like it was the best opportunity for me," Gill told ESPN. "I have a chance to come in and make an impact with the players who left last year -- and it's also a chance to help set me up for life after basketball."

Diamond Stone and Robert Carter both declared for the NBA draft and have signed with agents, while seniors Jake Layman and Rasheed Sulaimon both graduated. Melo Trimble has declared for the draft, but has not signed with an agent -- and has maintained his college eligibility.
