Dez Wells, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound wing, was expelled from Xavier after allegations of sexual assault surfaced. But a grand jury in Hamilton County (Ohio) decided this week that there was insufficient evidence to indict Wells.
After he was cleared, Wells, who averaged 9.8 points and 4.9 rebounds during his freshman season with the Musketeers, was almost immediately connected with Louisville, Maryland and Memphis. The Cardinals, however, didn't have a scholarship for the former four-star prospect.
He will follow up the U of M visit with an official trip to Maryland this weekend. A decision is expected Monday.
ESPN.com's Andy Katz broke down how Wells would fit in at Kentucky, Memphis and Maryland.
But Maryland may need his game experience more than any other team, with the youngest roster among the three contenders. The Terrapins have some veteran experience, but also will be trying to incorporate five freshmen into the mix, including Shaquille Cleare and Jake Layman. Evan Smotrycz is a Michigan transfer and has to sit out the year.
UPDATE: ESPN.com's Dave Telep tweeted that Wells plans to visit Ohio State and Oregon after his trip to College Park. He'll make a decision Monday or Tuesday, according to Telep.

"Maryland will be one of the schools that will make my top list of schools when I decide to form a list," Abu said following a visit to Maryland Monday.
The 5-8, 170-pound Lane's slippery moves and 4.4-second 40-yard-dash speed led the Comets to the state semifinals last fall for the first time in school history. Headed for Maryland, the All-Metro second-team pick ran for more than 1,700 yards and 21 touchdowns.
An intimidating presence at 6-5, 231 pounds, Jones started at left tackle last year, but his size and ability caught the Maryland coaches' eyes when he was playing defensive end at a camp this summer. Jones accepted an offer to play for the Terps.
