On Thursday afternoon, the University of Michigan announced that forward Jon Horford would be transferring out of the program and expend his final year of eligibility at another institution. He averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds per game this past season.

Being that he is scheduled to graduate in May, he would be able to transfer to another school and play immediately under the NCAA's graduate transfer rule. 

Shortly after the announcement was made, Maryland forward Evan Smotrycz tweeted his support for Horford possibly making the move to College Park:

Smotrycz and Horford played the 2011-12 season together in Ann Arbor before Smotrycz transferred to Maryland. In case you're making the connection, yes, Horford is the brother of NBA forward Al Horford.

Three players transferred from the Maryland program this week, freeing up possible scholarship room if the move were to happen. Maryland currently has 11 scholarship players, two below the NCAA limit of 13.
