Sophomore center Caelum Swanton-Rodger entered the transfer portal on Monday, according to Verbal Commits.

The 6-foot-11 Canadian spent two seasons with Maryland men’s basketball as a backup for forward Julian Reese. Swanton-Rodger averaged about four minutes per game as a freshman and 6.5 as a sophomore, but played in nearly every game this season.

Swanton-Rodger averaged 1.5 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.7 fouls per game in the 2023-24 season — mostly entering the game when Reese was in foul trouble or to give him rest. But even with Reese’s status for next year unknown, the Terps will have other options to turn to in the paint.

On top of Derik Queen — the No. 16 incoming freshman in the country according to 247 Sports’ composite list — Braden Pierce could provide depth.

Pierce, a three-star prospect, redshirted his freshman year. The 7-footer likely has a more polished offensive game than Swanton-Rodger, though the now-former Terp had more of the bulk and athleticism necessary to compete in the Big Ten.

Swanton-Rodger is the second member of Maryland’s 2023-24 squad to enter the transfer portal after Noah Batchelor announced his intentions to move on from the Terps on Friday as coach Kevin Willard looks to retool his roster.
