Former Georgetown center Qudus Wahab announced Saturday that he is transferring to Maryland.

Wahab averaged 12.7 points and 8.2 rebounds per game as a sophomore this season. The 6-foot-11, 237-pound Wahab was named to the Big East Conference All-Tournament Team after averaging 14.3 points and 8.3 rebounds over his four Big East tournament games.

Wahab will have three years of eligibility remaining, as the NCAA extended the eligibility rule for all winter athletes. He likely will slot into the starting lineup since 6-7 forward Donta Scott primarily started at the center position for the Terrapins in 2020-21.

“Q was an important piece of our success this year and he needs to do what he feels is best for him,” Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing said in a statement last month after Wahab entered the transfer portal.

“I want to wish him luck in his future. After an exciting postseason, we are ready to focus on the 2021-22 season.”
