Logan Aronhalt came to Maryland last spring as a highly skilled but relatively unknown shooter after playing three seasons of college ball at Albany.

Now after graduating and spending one season in a Terrapins uniform, he is headed overseas.

Aronhalt signed a deal with Casalpusterlengo of Italy's Nazionale A, the guard announced on Twitter Monday evening.

Casalpusterlengo finished last season fourth in their league with an overall record of 20-14. A number of American players have suited up for the team in the past, including Marcus Hatten of St. John's ('03) and Michael Cuffee of Middle Tennessee State ('05).

Aronhalt was solid in his one season in College Park, averaging 6.0 points and 1.7 rebounds per game while shooting 43 percent from three-point range. He was eligible to play immediately because of an NCAA rule that allows players who have already graduated to transfer to another institution without having to sit out one full season, so long as they pursue a graduate degree.

He went from being a focal point and averaging double digits at Albany to being a solid rotation player with the NIT-bound Terrapins in 2012-13.

His best game of the season came in a loss to Boston College on Feb. 19 when he scored 26 points on 8-of-13 shooting, including 7-of-12 from three-point range.

Aronhalt is a native of Zanesville, Ohio.
