Slocum to Leave Maryland
The National Women's College basketball freshman of the year, Destiny Slocum from Mountain View High school is leaving the Maryland Terrapins.
Slocum asked for and was granted permission to leave by the Maryland Athletic Department. Slocum said she talked with her family and decided to continue her college career elsewhere. There is only speculation as to where she might transfer.
Maryland head coach Brenda Frese said, "Our staff is proud of the commitment we put into Destiny's development and all the accomplishments she has achieved this season. We wish her continued success as she moves forward".
Slocum was named the Big 10 Freshman of the year and then the national freshman of the year after the 5-7 point guard led Maryland to a 32-3 season, averaged 11.5 PPG and 6 Assists per contest.
Slocum is a two time 5A Idaho player of the year and was rated the 7th best high school prospect in the country in 2016.
Two other Maryland players asked for and were granted permission to leave. One of the two, Kiah Gillespie said she was leaving because of personal family issues.
