Georgia Tech transfer and 6-foot-9 forward Tafara Gapare committed to Maryland men’s basketball on Thursday. Gapare’s commitment was first reported by InsideMDSports.

The New Zealand native averaged 5.1 points per game this past season, shooting 34.7 percent from the field and 16.9 percent from 3-point range as a sophomore.

Gapare was at his best toward the end of the season. He averaged 7.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and shot 42.1 percent from the floor in his last seven contests of the year.

A four-star recruit, Gapare committed to UMass out of high school and played there as a freshman but averaged 3.4 points in about 12 minutes per contest. Maryland did recruit Gapare, though, giving both sides some familiarity when he entered the transfer portal for the second time.

Gapare reclassified from the Class of 2023 to 2022, making him one of the youngest in his class.

The former Yellow Jacket was Maryland’s fourth addition from the transfer portal this offseason and the first forward coach Kevin Willard secured. The Terps’ first three transfers were guards Ja’Kobi Gillespie from Belmont, Rodney Rice from Virginia Tech and Selton Miguel from USF.

Maryland has one remaining scholarship spot to fill.
