Former Xavier forward Dezmine Wells announced Tuesday that he will enroll at Maryland.
He was expelled from Xavier as a result of sexual assault charges. A grand jury did not indict Wells last week. Wells made four official visits -- to Kentucky, Maryland, Memphis and Oregon -- before settling on the Terrapins on Tuesday.
"The last couple of weeks have been the toughest time in my life for my family and I," Wells said in a release. "I've learned that it is a major responsibility that comes with being a student-athlete at all times. I'm thankful God has blessed me with a second opportunity to continue my education."
Wells started 32 games as a freshman last season. His eligibility is in question because of his expulsion. He must formally petition to be allowed to play for the Terrapins in 2012-13.
