Gilchrist to South Florida

# Center/forward Gus Gilchrist of Temple Hills-Progressive Christian Academy, Md., will transfer from Maryland to South Florida, according to the Tampa Tribune. He also considered Kentucky and West Virginia.

Gilchrist had first signed with Virginia Tech in November 2006, but opted out of his letter citing the 2007 shootings on campus. He enrolled in Maryland, but the ACC ruled Gilchrist would not be eligible until January 2009 and would lose a year of eligibility because he had signed with another conference school. Maryland then gave Gilchrist a requested release. South Florida is expected to appeal to the NCAA for a hardship waiver that would allow Gilchrist to play this season at USF. If the appeal is not successful, he would not be able to play at USF until the 2009-10 season.
