Source: Dez Wells to Maryland
Former Xavier wing Dez Wells is headed to Maryland, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told SNY.tv. Tuesday morning.
Wells chose Maryland over Memphis. He also visited Kentucky and considered Oregon.
It remains unclear if he will be eligible to suit up this season or must sit and wait until 2013-14. If he is cleared to play this year, it would be a huge get for the Terps.
Maryland is also in the hunt for the Harrison Twins, who will announce Oct. 29 from among the Terps, Kentucky, Villanova, Baylor and SMU.
Wells, who averaged 9.8 points last season, was expelled from Xavier Aug. 3 for a violation of the school’s code of student conduct.
Yet last week a Hamilton County (Ohio) grand jury opted not to indict Wells on a sexual assault charge.
