Alabama graduate transfer Galin Smith narrowed down his list of teams to Maryland, VCU and Arizona State, the forward posted on his Twitter.
Smith is immediately available to play next season.
The 6-foot-9 forward served as a spot starter in his three seasons with the Crimson Tide. Over the course of his three years, he started in 31 contests and averaged 3.2 points throughout his career. While his role was limited, his best statistical output was his sophomore season (3.8 points).
In his limited scoring, he was efficient when he shot the ball. Last year he shot 55.7% from the field. Every year it was 52% or better, but all from inside the paint.
Maryland is in desperate need of post reinforcements. Jalen Smith has forgone his eligibility for the NBA and several back-up options have transferred. While in an ideal scenario Galin Smith would come off the bench, he would be the second Terp 6-foot-7 or taller able to play next year. Likely, he would be a starter at the four or the five. Sharing a surname with Jalen will surely make him a fan-favorite in College Park.
VCU also is looking for a key figure in their frontcourt depth after the transfer of Marcus Santos-Silva. With the Rams, he would likely be a part of their forward rotation.
