Gus Gilchrist Granted Release

More offseason bad news for the Maryland Men's basketball team, incoming freshmen forward Augustus Gilchrist had requested his release and was apparently granted it.

This news comes after another recruit, Tyree Evans received his release from scholarship from the Terps. Gilchrist is a 6'9'' 235 pound forward who was expected to play a big role for the hoops team next year. Gilchrist practiced with the team during the Spring semester of last season and was expected to sit out the Fall semester of the upcoming season due to his transfer from Virginia Tech.

However, apparently Gilchrist could not wait that long and decided to once again transfer. The release of Gilchrist Evans, and Walker leaves the Terps with only 9 scholarship players and a potential 10th. The 10th being shooting guard Shane Mosely who has not officially signed because he is waiting for acceptance by the admissions office.

Sidenote: The Terps were also expected to land point guard Bobby Maze, however he could not get his grades in line for acceptance.
