Maryland is in the market for a fifth-year graduate guard to fill the void left by the transfer of guard Seth Allen, who is reportedly headed to Virginia Tech.

One name that had emerged was Hawaii guard Keith Shamburger, who is slated to graduate in the summer and would be eligible to play immediately at his next destination. But he now appears to be off the board.

According to his Twitter account, Shamburger has committed to play for Missouri and first-year head coach Kim Anderson:

During one season with Hawaii, Shamburger averaged 9.3 points and 5.4 assists per game for the Warriors. Missouri will be his third Division-I destination after beginning his career at San Jose State in 2011-12. 

Maryland's focus now shifts to a handful of other guards options who could step in with the Terrapins and play immediately. Among those head coach Mark Turgeon and his staff are targeting is IUPUI guard Ian Chiles and North Carolina A&T guard Richaud Pack. 

According to a report, Pack is visiting Maryland's campus on Sunday and Monday.
