Maryland guard Seth Allen intends to transfer from the Maryland program, the university announced in a statement on Friday afternoon.

Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com was the first to report the news.

The news follows a week of rumors saying that he would be leaving the program.

“I’ve grown close to Seth and his family over the past few years, so I am disappointed he has decided to leave Maryland,” head coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement. “I wish Seth the best.”

Allen played two seasons in College Park. He averaged 13.4 points and 3.0 assists per game this past season as a sophomore, a year in which he missed 12 games due to injury. Because of that injury, a broken bone in his foot, the process of assimilating back into the offense was long even after he returned to the floor.

In his absence, Maryland used a mix of point guard options in an effort to fill the void. Among them were Dez Wells, Roddy Peters, and Varun Ram.

Allen reportedly becomes the fourth player to transfer from the Maryland program since the conclusion of the 2013-14 season. He joins Nick Faust, who left for Oregon State, Shaquille Cleare, who signed with Texas, and Peters, who remains uncommitted.
