The latest member of what is now a four member transfer class has made his way out of Maryland. Shaq Cleare (Texas), Nick Faust (Oregon State), and Roddy Peters (Undecided) all have already left the University and now guard Seth Allen will join them as he announced he would be transferring to ESPN.
“I had a great two years there,” Allen told ESPN.com. “And I’m thankful for the opportunity, but I also feel as though it’s time for me to move on.”
There were rumors that Allen would be leaving, but nothing had been confirmed. As of Friday Allen had not received his release yet, according to the report.
The 6’1” sophomore missed the first 12 games of the season with a broken foot but averaged 13.4 points and 3.0 assists in the 2013-14 season. Allen would score at least 18 points in four of his last five games to end the season as the Maryland starting point guard and was thought to be a key component returning for the Terps heading into the Big Ten conference.
The Maryland recruiting class should help fill some holes, as they bring in 7’1″ Trayvon Reed and 7-footer Michal Cekovsky down low and add the number one player in the state of Maryland, Romelo Trimble, who is a four star prospect. While the recruiting class is one of the best Maryland has seen in a while, they will need to fill multiple holes in a team that underperformed a year ago.
