Antonio Barton expected to announce his choice Sunday
Antonio Barton, a Baltimore native and former Memphis guard, will announce Sunday afternoon where he is transferring. Will Barton, Antonio's brother and a Portland Trail Blazers guard, posted the news on his Twitter account Tuesday night. Antonio Barton, a Lake Clifton graduate who is considering Maryland and Tennessee among other schools, would be eligible to play next season because he plans to graduate from Memphis this summer. He's an appealing option for Maryland, which has been in search of guard depth since Pe'Shon Howard's decision to transfer earlier this spring. Barton, a close friend of Maryland guard Nick Faust, visited Maryland last weekend.
More men: Martin Breunig, the last Maryland player signed during the Gary Williams era, is transferring to Montana after two underwhelming seasons at Washington. Breunig pledged to Williams in the spring of 2011 out of St. John's Northwestern Military Academy in Delafield, Wis. The native of Leverkusen, Germany, picked the Terps over offers from Virginia and several mid-major programs. When Williams retired and Mark Turgeon was hired, however, Maryland parted ways with Breunig, who later signed with Washington. Breunig appeared in just nine games for the Huskies as a sophomore, averaging 0.1 of a point and 0.8 of a rebound. ... Gerrae Williams, a 2011 Aberdeen graduate, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Mercyhurst, a Division II program in Erie, Pa. Williams, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, has spent the past two years at Cloud County Community College in Kansas. He averaged 20 points, four assists and four rebounds as a senior at Aberdeen.
