Here is Maryland's press release on Parker's transfer...

"Mychal Parker, a sophomore forward on the University of Maryland men’s basketball team, has been granted his release and will pursue a transfer to play elsewhere, head coach Mark Turgeon announced Monday.

“We appreciate the effort and commitment Mychal made to our success and our program this season,” Turgeon said. “We certainly wish him well as he continues his academic and athletic pursuits.”

Parker, a native of Washington, N.C., played two seasons for the Terrapins. Last season, he averaged 4.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 18.0 minutes. Parker played in all 32 games for the Terrapins as a sophomore after appearing in 13 as a freshman.

“I have come to the realization that it is in my best interests to continue my education and my career elsewhere,” said Parker. “I’m very grateful for the opportunities and support I’ve gotten from the University of Maryland and from Coach Turgeon. I will always consider myself a Terp for life.” "

Parker played some of his best basketball toward the end of this past season, so its a shame that the Terps are losing a quality player. Rumor has it that Parker is considering ECU, Loyola MD, and UAB as possible destinations.
