University of Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon announced today that junior point guard Pe’Shon Howard will transfer from Maryland for his senior season.

University of Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon announced today that junior point guard Pe’Shon Howard will transfer from Maryland for his senior year. Howard averaged 3.3 points, 3.6 assists in 36 games this season.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound California native spent three seasons at Maryland and averaged 4.7 point and 3.5 assists in 83 career games with 44 starts.

“We wish Pe’Shon the best and thank him for his contributions as a student-athlete at the University of Maryland,” said Turgeon. “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.”

“I want to thank Coach Turgeon for allowing me to pursue an opportunity to complete my final season of college basketball at a university closer to home,” Howard said. “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. I love my teammates and wish them the very best and appreciate all of the support and guidance that I received from my coaches.”
