Following the transfers of Roddy Peters, Shaquille Cleare, and Nick Faust, Maryland has some scholarship leeway, that of which it could possibly use on a graduate transfer.

A graduate transfer, one who has graduated from one institution but still has eligibility remaining, is eligible to play immediately at another institution if certain academic requirements are met.

According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com, IUPUI guard Ian Chiles could be on Maryland's radar:

The 6-1 guard averaged 15.8 points per game last season as a senior, his third straight season averaging double figures.

As Maryland's backcourt stands now, Seth Allen, Dez Wells, Romelo Trimble, and Dion Wiley figure to be the biggest contributors in the team's backcourt. An injury to Allen last season proved to be an issue, not only because Allen's production was lost during his recovery but also because it took time for the sophomore to find his way back into the offense upon his return.

Chiles would bring another scoring option in the rotation. He reached the 20-point mark 10 times last season in 25 games played.
