In three seasons at Charlotte, point guard Jahmir Young established himself as one of the top players in the mid-majors. With the choice of either transferring or going to the NBA as options right now, he’s made a major commitment.
According to college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Young is heading to Maryland and will play for the Terps next season. But that move is contingent on him leaving the 2022 NBA Draft pool – a move he has not made yet.
Young started 85 games in three seasons with the 49ers. He averaged 16.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game, and over 18 points a game over the last two years. Young was also three-time All-Conference USA selection.
But the 2021-22 season was Young’s best year to date. His per game averages improved across the board in every major category despite averaging fewer minutes per game.
Maryland fans were understandably delighted by the good news. They had especially high praise for new head coach Kevin Willard:
Charlotte transfer Jahmir Young tells me that he has committed to Maryland and will play for the Terps next season as long as he does not stay in the 2022 NBA Draft.

“Kevin Willard is already better than turgeon and turning around this program fast we got our guy,” one fan said in a retweet.
“Kevin Willard on the board at Maryland,” wrote another.
“LETS GO. Big one for the Terps, will be lead guard. Scored 20 ppg at Charlotte last season. Kevin Willard recruiting well. Its about time we got a Dematha kid even if its after he started somewhere else!!” a third wrote.
Will Jahmir Young be an impact player for Maryland in the 2022-23 season?
