Quick Post: Smotrycz to Maryland

Evan Smotrycz has announced his decision to transfer to Maryland.  If you haven't been following along, the 6'9" swing forward from the University of Michigan, a former 4-star recruit out of New Hampshire, had CU listed in his final three schools.  He would've been a nice addition to the Buffs frontcourt, especially considering that his first year of eligibility ('13-'14) will probably be the first year post-'Dre.
Good luck to you, Evan.
Still, with the impending non-transfers of Shannon Sharpe and Ben Mills, I'm not sure a scholarship was available for him had he favored CU.  Additionally, this leaves the coaching staff with at least one probable scholarship to spend in the talent rich 2013 recruiting year.

As an aside, by picking Maryland, Smotrycz chose Terp coach Mark Turgeon over our own Coach Boyle.  All together Turgeon has now bested Coach Boyle (a former assistant) in two games and a recruiting battle.  The Master one-ups the pupil once again.
