Former Mountain View great Destiny Slocum who was named Big 10 and national freshman of the year has decided to transfer from the University of Maryland.

Slocum, a native of Meridian, Idaho, started in 34 of 35 games and averaged 11 points and 6 assists per game.
The High profiled guard decision to leave Maryland is due to her wanting to be closer to her family. 

Destiny had this to say about transferring.

"I’m grateful for my time at Maryland and the opportunity,” Slocum said “I want to thank my teammates and coaches and all the fans for their support this season. I’ve put a lot of thought and prayer into this decision. I've talked with my family and Coach B a great deal and have decided to continue my college career elsewhere.”

The guard will have to sit out for a year at her new school but will have three years of eligibility left.
