Maryland point guard Pe’Shon Howard has been granted permission by the school to transfer for his senior season.

Howard says he wants to be closer to his ailing grandmother, who lives in California.

The 6-foot-3 Howard averaged 3.3 points and 3.6 assists in 36 games this season. He started in 24 games. Over his three-year career at Maryland, Howard averaged 4.7 points and 3.5 assists in 83 games.

Maryland coach Mark Turgeon says, “We understand this is best for Pe’Shon and his family and will support him through this transition.”

Howard called it a “difficult decision.” He expressed his gratitude to Turgeon for “allowing me to pursue an opportunity to complete my final season of college basketball at a university closer to home.”
