Graduate Transfer C Smith Joins Terps

May 12, 2020

Maryland secured a graduate transfer from Alabama May 12 in center Galin Smith. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Smith entered the transfer portal in late April, and May 8 listed a top three leaderboard of UMD, Arizona State and VCU. He chose the Terps due to their immediate need for a big man in the frontcourt.

“I’m really excited and grateful for the opportunity Coach Turgeon has given me to come and make an impact on a team as great as Maryland,” Smith said. “The plan he has laid out for me on and off the court is going to help both me and the team have success.
