North Carolina A&T transfer Richaud Pack commits to Maryland

David Banks-US PRESSWIRE

The former Florida International and North Carolina A&T guard will spend his final collegiate season in College Park.

Maryland took a step in replacing what they lost after the transfers of guards Roddy Peters, Seth Allen and Nick Faust today with the commitment of Richaud Pack Thursday, per Alex Prewitt. Pack will graduate from NC A&T and be eligible immediately.

Pack, a Detroit native, spent his first two seasons at Florida International, playing in only 19 games and averaging just 2 points per game. His production skyrocketed after a transfer to North Carolina A&T, averaging 17 points, 1.6 assists and 4.6 rebounds. The 6'2" guard led the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) in offensive rating, defined as the estimate number of points scored per 100 possessions, at 126.8. Maryland's leader in offensive rating last season was Seth Allen at 113.7.

While both the staff and fans would have preferred Maryland add a "true point guard" to back up incoming freshman Melo Trimble, Pack is definitely more of a scoring guard. Whether he can, or is even asked to, change his playing style and become an option to run the offense in Trimble's stead remains to be seen.

With the addition of Pack, the Terps have 12 of their allotted 13 scholarships filled for the 2014-2015 season.
