COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland's basketball team has signed Georgia Tech transfer Robert Carter, Jr.<br />
Carter averaged 11 points and seven rebounds in two seasons with the Yellow Jackets. The 6-foot-8, 247-pounder will enroll at Maryland this summer and be eligible for the 2015-16 season as a redshirt junior.<br />
Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon describes Carter as "a complete player with a strong offensive skillset."<br />
As a sophomore last season, Carter averaged 11.4 points and 8.4 rebounds despite missing 10 games with a knee injury.<br />
Previously this offseason, the Terps had five players transfer from the program, including forward Charles Mitchell and guards Seth Allen and Nick Faust.<br />
Carter says he came to Maryland because of the relationship he developed with Turgeon.
