Martin Breunig, one-time Terps recruit, transfers to Montana from Washington

Martin Breunig, the last Maryland signee of the Gary Williams era, is transferring to Montana after two underwhelming seasons at Washington.

"We are very excited about signing Martin Breunig at the University of Montana," Grizzlies coach Wayne Tinkle said in a news release. "He's a strong, athletic post player, and he really adds good size and strength to our front line."

Breunig pledged to Williams in the spring of 2011 out of St. John's Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield, Wis. The native of Leverkusen, Germany picked the Terps over offers from Virginia and several mid-major programs.

When Williams retired and Mark Turgeon was hired, however, Maryland parted ways with Breunig, who later signed with Washington. Breunig appeared in just nine games for the Huskies as a sophomore, averaging 0.1 points and 0.8 rebounds.
