Conwright will sit out the 2013-14 season per NCAA transfer rules.
"We are extremely excited to add Maegan to our Seminole family," Semrau said. "She will bolster our young backcourt with her experience and leadership. Maegan will contribute at multiple perimeter positions for us. She has played in some big games and is a relentless, tenacious player who will help take this program to the next level."
