Maryland basketball: Nick Faust transfers to Oregon State

The former Maryland wing man is headed out west.

Another former Terp has found announced their transfer destination, as former Maryland guard Nick Faust will be headed to Oregon State, per Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

Oregon State was long considered the most likely option for Faust, and it will give him an opportunity to play a major scoring role on a power conference team -- something he was never able to do in his time at Maryland. The Baltimore native averaged 8.9, 9.4 and 9.4 points per game, respectively in his time with the Terps, but was most known for being able to impact the game on the defensive end. He improved his steal numbers in his junior season and dramatically improved his blocking numbers, but his poor shooting and decision-making often hurt the team on the offensive end.

From our friends at Building the Dam, on where Faust might fit in with the Beavers:

He will probably be a part of a 3 guard system for Oregon St. Craig Robinson, along with returners Malcolm Duvivier and Langston Morris-Walker, as well as JC transfer Gary Payton Jr., and freshman Chai Baker. All 4 have at least 2 remaining seasons of eligibility, so the same rotation scenario could exist in 2015-16.

Fellow transfer Shaq Cleare has signed with Texas, leaving Roddy Peters as the only remaining Maryland transfer on the market.
