Maryland Men's Basketball's Chol Marial To Undergo Surgery

August 27, 2019
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland men's basketball head coach Mark Turgeon has announced freshman Chol Marial will undergo surgery Sept. 4 to repair a stress fracture in both legs. Marial is expected to make a full recovery in 3-4 months.

"Chol battled through injuries over the last few years in high school and we are glad to find a resolution that will provide him with the proper medical care he needs," Turgeon said. "Our top priority is ensuring Chol is able to not only return to the court, but lead a healthy life well beyond basketball. We are confident Chol will make a full recovery and look forward to his return."

A four-star recruit, the 7-2 Marial was ranked the No. 2 player in the state of Arizona according to ESPN. The South Sudan native averaged 14 points, 13 rebounds and eight blocks at AZ Compass Prep, before officially signing with Maryland on May 6, 2019.
