Report: Wells one of four new players to sign with Under Armour

Former Maryland guard Dez Wells is one of four new players to sign an endorsement deal with Under Armour, according to Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun.

Wells joins former Utah guard Delon Wright, former Notre Dame and DeMatha (Md.) guard Jerian Grant, and former No. 4 overall pick Wes Johnson in the group of four newly signed players.

Utah, Notre Dame, and Maryland are all outfitted by Under Armour.

Wells played three seasons at Maryland after transferring to College Park from Xavier. He was integral to the stabilization of head coach Mark Turgeon's program after Turgeon took over for Hall of Fame coach Gary Williams.

The Terrapins made the NCAA tournament this past season, the second time in Wells' career and his first time at Maryland. He averaged 15.1 points and 5.3 rebounds as a senior.

Wells went undrafted in 2015, but joined the Washington Wizards for summer league. An injury, though, kept him from competing. 

Without a live pro audition in summer league, Wells was still able to attract a training camp offer from the Oklahoma City Thunder, the team with which he is currently signed.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.

The Big Ten Receiver of the Year in 2017, Moore was obviously a crucial component of the Terps’ offense. He finished the season with 80 catches — a Maryland single-season record, which was also a Big Ten high.

He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with Maryland.
