Former Maryland G Seth Allen transfers to Virginia Tech, per report

USA TODAY Sports

The Terps' second-leading scorer is headed to a former conference rival.

Former Maryland guard Seth Allen has made his transfer destination known quickly, as CBS Sports's Jon Rothstein is reporting the rising junior is transferring to Virginia Tech to spend his final two seasons. Allen will have to sit out one year in accordance with NCAA transfer rules.

Allen will join new Hokies head coach Buzz Williams in Blacksburg, and the former three-star recruit from Fredericksburg, Va. will return to his home state and remain in the ACC. Williams's system makes a whole lot more sense for Allen than the other rumored destination -- Tony Bennett at Virginia.

Looking for replacements

Allen's main competition at the point guard position will likely be rising sophomore Devin Wilson, recently off an all-conference freshman season in which he averaged 9.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game. Allen, who averaged 13.4 points per game as a sophomore last season, will likely be one of the focal points of Williams's offense once he is eligible to play. During his time at Marquette, Williams produced a number of successful guards who went on to play professionally -- either in the NBA or overseas.

Roddy Peters and Nick Faust's destinations are still up in the air, while Shaquille Cleare is headed to Texas.
