Former Albany shooting guard Logan Aronhalt said Sunday that he planned to transfer to Maryland for his final year of eligibility. On Tuesday, Terps coach Mark Turgeon made it official.

"We are thrilled to add Logan to our basketball family,” Turgeon said in a news release. “Logan's values are closely aligned with the expectations we have in our program. I'm impressed with his high level of success in the classroom while being an all-league player in the American East. We have a world-class kinesiology graduate program, and he really wanted to be a part of that.

“I am impressed with Logan's toughness, leadership and basketball IQ. He's a coach's son and his game reflects that. Logan had a great career at Albany, scoring almost 1,100 points in three years. His experience and ability will really be helpful on a team that will feature so many underclassmen."

Aronhalt, who signed a financial-aid agreement and will be able to play right away at Maryland, averaged 13.8 points as a redshirt junior for the Great Danes. The 6-foot-3 guard started 74 straight games in three seasons at Albany, scoring 1,091 points and connecting on 169 3-pointers. The newest Terp was a third-team All-America East Conference selection in 2011.

    Maryland’s 11-point win over Albany last season featured the debut of Alex Len, but was an otherwise unremarkable non-conference game for the Terps. For Great Danes guard Logan Aronhalt, however, the late-December matchup was unforgettable.
