Fofana To Leave Maryland

The University of Maryland lost a player this week. Hassan Fofana, a 6-foot-10 sophomore is officially on the transfer wire.

Hassan Fofana, a 6-foot-10 sophomore from Guinea, is leaving the University of Maryland. Last season, Fofana averaged 1.4 points and 1.7 rebounds.

The 280-pounder prepped at Hargrave Military as a senior before picking the Terps. When reached Monday evening, Fofana had little to say about his future destination.

"Right now it's exam week so I don't have any idea what is going to happen yet," Fofana said. "I guess it'll be a place where I can play. I want to play a lot of minutes so I can get my game out."

Fofana said that while he has thought little about a future destination, he did indicate that he would be open to both mid-major and high-major programs. "It doesn't matter to me. Anywhere where that I can play offensively and be able to make it to the next level."

Fofana said that he can't to anyone just yet and with exams this week, more information on his situation will become available later in the week.

In terms of scuttlebutt we've heard, worthy of early mention are Georgetown, Massachusetts, Texas Tech and Rhode Island. However, at this point, it's all speculation.
