Boston College transfer Jairus Hamilton committed to Maryland, he announced Wednesday. The 6-foot-8 forward was a regular starter for the Eagles last season, averaging 9.5 points and 4.3 rebounds.
Hamilton started eight games and averaged 20.8 minutes as a freshman who scored 5.6 points per game in 2018-19.
Hamilton, who will be a junior next year, would not be eligible to play for the Terrapins during the 2020-21 season unless he receives an individual waiver for immediate eligibility or the NCAA’s one-time transfer waiver for all athletes goes into effect. Hamilton has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
