It's being reported that Antonio Barton will transfer from Memphis. He seems to fit the bill to a "T" of what the Terps are in need of.
A somewhat proven PG, with some untapped upside, who could come in and play right away.
Really the only reason why he's leaving Memphis is because Johnson is a monster. Barton excelled in the few games he was given minutes--he scored in double digits in five of the seven games where he played more than 25 minutes.
It seems like he would be an upgrade over Pe, and a backcourt of him, Faust and Dez would be extremely athletic.
Perhaps most important, if you remember, the Terps were on the Barton twins hard coming out of college and he is a Bmore native. You'd have to think the Terps would be an attractive place for a MD kid to come home and play his final year.
Could end up being a great mutual fit.
Add a similar big man transfer, and I think you have a team that should be expected to compete, not only for a tournament spot, but perhaps a 6-10 seed rather than a bubble spot.
