Maryland forward Kiah Gillespie transfers to Florida State

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Kiah Gillespie has completed her transfer from Maryland to Florida State.

The 6-foot-2 sophomore forward from Meriden, Connecticut, will sit out next season and have two years of eligibility remaining starting in 2018-19.

Gillespie, who was a 2015 McDonald's High School All-American, averaged 4.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per game in two seasons with the Terrapins. Florida State coach Sue Semrau said on Wednesday that Gillespie is a multi-faceted player who can knock down 3-pointers or make plays from the high post.

This is the third transfer that the Seminoles have added in the offseason. Point guard AJ Alix, a graduate transfer from TCU, and Junior College forward Hatty Nawezhi will be eligible next season.
