Seth Allen announced late last week his intention to leave Maryland, becoming the fourth player to leave the program this offseason (and Charles Mitchell apparently could become the fifth). According to various corners of the tubes, the Wolfpack is already pursuing Allen, who will have to sit out the 2014-15 season but will have two years of eligibility remaining after that. Virginia is another possible destination that's been thrown out so far.

He is restricted from making a move to another Big Ten team, but based on the radio interview he did Tuesday, it doesn't sound like he was really interested in playing in that league anyway.

"In the ACC, I can speak for my teammates, we pretty much know every player. We know who we're going to play against, what we're doing. The scouting report is just to refresh your memory, but you know. In the Big Ten, it's going to be different. You're going to have to buckle down and you're going to have to be focused."

Allen finished second behind Dez Wells with an average of 13.4 points per game, and shot 38% from three-point range. He wants to play point guard since he's undersized for a two, and that might be the biggest factor in where he decides to go next. He says he expects to make a decision within a couple weeks.
