Maryland lands Florida’s top scorer Eleanna Christinaki

Midseason transfers are rare, but Maryland just landed a big one in Florida sophomore Eleanna Christinaki.

Typically, it is during the summer months or the end of the semester, when players decide to transfer, but every now and then there are rare cases of a mid-year transfer.

Last month, Florida’s leading scorer, Eleanna Christinaki, quit the team following a team suspension, one she was not willing to accept. Fast forward a few weeks and now Christiaki has chosen her new home: No. 3 team Maryland, multiple sources tell Swish Appeal.

She took her official visit to College Park when the Terrapins hosted No. 1 UConn, in what turned out to be a classic.

Christinaki chose Maryland over two other top-10 ranked that she has visited in the past few weeks. Earlier this week, she visited No. 2 Baylor and a couple weeks ago she took an official visit to No. 8 Louisville.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Christinaki will have to sit out a year before she is eligible to play for Maryland.
