This is a developing story, but this is what I have from the press release:
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – University of Maryland head basketball coach Gary Williams announced Monday (April 28) that freshman forward Shane Walker (Northampton, England/Montrose Christian) has decided to transfer. Walker will finish the spring semester at Maryland and leaves the program in good academic standing.
“We wish Shane the best of luck in the future and will assist him in his transition this spring,” said Williams.
Walker played in 24 games during the 2007-08 season. He averaged 1.0 rebounds and scored 0.5 points per game. A native of Northampton, England, Walker scored a personal-best four points at Virginia Tech on January 12. He pulled down a personal-best three rebounds on four occasions and played a season-high 13 minutes at Charlotte on January 5.
There is no mention as to where Walker will be going or if the Terps will be filling his vacated slot this season.
