Guard Pe’Shon Howard to transfer from Maryland

Maryland junior Pe’Shon Howard will transfer away from College Park and likely move closer to his ailing grandmother in California, the school announced in a release on Monday.

Howard spent three seasons with the Terrapins and averaged 3.3 points and 3.6 assists per game during his junior season. Over the course of his career, he played in 83 games and averaged 4.7 points and 3.5 assists.

“We wish Pe’Shon the best and thank him for his contributions as a student-athlete at the University of Maryland,” Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement. “We are disappointed that he is leaving, but Pe’Shon shared with me that his grandmother is ill in California and that he would like to finish his final season of eligibility playing closer to home. We understand this is best for Pe’Shon and his family and will support him through this transition.”

“It was a very difficult decision because I really enjoyed my three years as a student-athlete at Maryland, but my grandmother is sick and I feel it is best that I be closer to my family,” Howard said in a statement. “I love my teammates and wish them the very best and appreciate all of the support and guidance that I received from my coaches.”

Maryland finished 25-13 this past season, including 8-10 in the ACC. The Terrapins advanced to the semifinals of the NIT, but were eliminated by Iowa.

With Howard leaving the program, Maryland will rely more on soon-to-be sophomore Seth Allen next season. Incoming freshman Roddy Peters will also likely be a key part of the rotation. Peters is a Top 100 prospect and native of Maryland.
