Maryland women add Tennessee transfer Mimi Collins

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Maryland has boosted its frontcourt by adding Tennessee transfer Mimi Collins.

Maryland announced Tuesday that Collins had signed with the Terrapins. Collins announced May 2 on social media that she was leaving Tennessee.

Collins, a former McDonald's All-American from Waldorf, Maryland, averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in her lone season at Tennessee.

The 6-foot-3 forward started the final four games of Tennessee's season and averaged nine points and 2.3 rebounds during that stretch.

Collins said in a statement released by the university, "I wanted to come to Maryland because I wanted to stay home and play with great people."

Collins has three seasons of eligibility remaining. She plans to seek a waiver from the NCAA that would enable her to play for Maryland immediately. Without the waiver, Collins would need to sit out the 2019-20 season.
