The Maryland Terrapins announced that sophomore forward Ricky Lindo Jr. has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

Lindo’s playing time was limited in Big Ten games, and he finished the 2019-20 season averaging 7.0 minutes, 1.7 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. It was less time on the court than his 12.3 minutes per game as a freshman.

The Washington, D.C. native came to Maryland as part of the program’s highly-ranked Class of 2018 that also included Jalen Smith, Aaron Wiggins and Eric Ayala.

“I want to thank the University of Maryland and Coach (Mark) Turgeon for everything over the last two years,” Lindo said in a statement. “I had a chance to be a part of some amazing moments that I will never forget, including winning a conference title. I’m appreciative of my coaches and teammates for all their support. After much discussion with my family, I have decided it is best to seek a new opportunity as I continue my college career.”

“I can’t thank Ricky enough for his commitment over the past two seasons and for helping our team win the Big Ten Championship this year,” Turgeon said in a statement. “Ricky was a great teammate and did everything I ever asked of him. He’s a fantastic person and I wish him and his family all the best moving forward.”
