Charles Mitchell transfers from Maryland basketball

The rising junior forward will leave in order to tend to his sick grandmother.

Make that five scholarship players transferring out of Maryland's basketball program in one offseason, as Charles Mitchell will also be plying his trade elsewhere. The school announced that Mitchell had been granted a release in order to tend to his ill grandmother (in the same release in which they announced the addition of Richaud Pack), countering an earlier report that he was remaining with the program. He joins Shaquille Cleare, Nick Faust, Roddy Peters and Seth Allen as players leaving the program after the past season.

Mitchell's sister is reportedly also transferring from Towson for the same reason.

The rising junior looked to be on the outside of the starting lineup, next season even with the departure of Shaquille Cleare. With his height issues, Mitchell was always favored as a bench option due to his struggles guarding opposing big men, and incoming seven-footers Michal Cekovsky and Trayvon Reed looked to compete with Damonte Dodd for the starting center position.

Maryland now has another scholarship to play with in the transfer market, an area they've already been very active in.
