Former Hawaii guard Keith Shamburger transfers to Missouri

The Terrapin target announces his decision on his Twitter account, but another target is visiting.

Make that one less potential guard for Maryland to target. Former Hawaii guard Keith Shamburger has committed to play his final season at Missouri, the guard announced on his Twitter account.

Shamburger, originally from Los Angeles, played two seasons with San Jose State before transferring to Hawaii. The point guard occupied a scoring role during his time with the Spartans, but evolved into a terrific ball-handler and distributor while with the Warriors, leading the Big West with 5.4 assists per game while averaging just 2.0 turnovers per contest.

Back to the drawing board

Maryland offered Shamburger a scholarship earlier in the month, as was one of just a few actual names we've heard for the open scholarships after the mass transfer exodus. Shamburger was also the transfer guard of choice for many Maryland fans, giving the Terps a "true" point guard to help with their array of scoring options.

Former IUPUI guard Ian Chilesvisiting Maryland this week, still seems to be the most likely option, but Alex Prewitt is reporting North Carolina A&T transfer guard Richaud Pack is also visiting College Park this weekend. Pack averaged 17.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game this past season, and is a very similar player to Chiles. We'll have more on potential transfer targets early next week.
