Maryland is one of those programs that has been through a coaching change. In late March, Kevin Willard was introduced as the new head coach of the Terrapins, succeeding Mark Turgeon after his in-season parting.

Willard appears to be looking to the transfer portal to boost the 2022-23 roster. This weekend, college basketball insider Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported that Maryland is showing interest in Pitt transfer Femi Odukale and Charlotte transfer Jahmir Young.

Odukale has been with Pitt for 2 seasons. He stepped into a starting role in 2021-22, making 28 starts over 31 games, averaging 3.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 10.8 points on 39.1% shooting over 32.4 minutes.

Young played in 31 games, all starts, for Charlotte this season, averaging 5.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 19.6 points on 46.8% shooting over 35.8 minutes per game. He was first-team All-Conference USA as the only player in the conference to score in double-figures and play in every game for his team this season. Young had 5 double-doubles in 2021-22, his third season.
