Transfer List

Seth Allen – Headed to Virginia Tech to become a true point guard

Nick Faust – Headed to Long Beach State

Roddy Peters – Headed to South Florida for playing time

Shaq Cleare – Headed to Texas

Charles Mitchell – Headed to Georgia Tech to stay closer to his grandmother.

Speaking of early departures Trayvon Reed, one of the recruits in the incoming class,was barred from the university for assaulting police and resisting arrest.

I’m not kidding

Now for the bright side, Maryland still welcomes a dynamite recruiting class and the return of core players Dez Wells and Jake Layman. Since the end of the Gary Williams era, Turgeon’s Terrapins have garnered a reputation of a tournament talent team that comes up small in big moments. Turgeon is hoping for a tournament appearance this season, as his job may depend on it.
