Maryland has pulled out of the Jimmy V Classic against Villanova on Dec. 8 because of "scheduling issues," according to a news release from ESPN. The Terps, who were replaced by Illinois, will take part in the event in 2016. Not playing Villanova takes a major opportunity at a Top 50 win off the table for the Terps, who are scheduled to play Virginia in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge at Comcast Center the week before and also have possible matchups against Iowa State and Arizona State at the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City.

Maryland men's basketball Maryland coach Mark Turgeon , who lost out to Georgia Tech when power forward Robert Carter came out of high school, is getting a second chance. A source with knowledge of Carter's situation confirmed that Carter, who has decided to transfer from the Yellow Jackets, will visit College Park next week. InsideMDSports.com first reported that Carter had a visit lined up, and told the website that he is also considering St. John's, South Carolina and Kansas.

The transformation of the Maryland basketball team is not yet complete, as Mark Turgeon still has two roster spots left to fill if he so chooses. If Turgeon has learned anything from the tumultuous stretch that saw five players from last year's team leave for a variety of reasons, it is this: he and his staff have to do a better job recruiting players who will fit his system and accept roles that don't necessarily include being scorers or stars or even starters. In announcing Thursday that 7-foot Slovakian forward Michal Cekovsky had signed his letter of intent and 6-3 shooting guard Richaud Pack was transferring after graduating from North Carolina A&T, Turgeon was quick to talk about their character as much as their talent.

The merry-go-round that has been the Maryland men's basketball roster kept spinning Thursday, with forward Charles Mitchell joining four others who have jumped off since the end of last season and Richaud Pack, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from North Carolina A&T, hopping on. The Terps also announced that 7-foot Slovakian forward Michal Cekovsky officially signed his national letter of intent after committing to Maryland last month. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon made it clear that Mitchell's decision to transfer was different than the others.

Less than a month after being named Maryland's director of basketball operations, Cliff Warren was promoted Tuesday to an assistant coach position. Warren, 46, replaces Scott Spinelli, who left last month for a similar position at Boston College. To fill the basketball operation job, Maryland hired Nima Omidvar, who spent the past three seasons as the video coordinator at North Carolina State. The addition of Warren gives Mark Turgeon the most experienced assistant he has ever had in his 16-year head coaching career.

More than a week after Seth Allen became the fourth Maryland player with remaining eligibility to leave the program since the season ended, Mark Turgeon is still trying to find another guard. The hope of getting an experienced point guard to back up freshman Melo Trimble seems to be fading - combo guards Ian Chiles of IUPUI and Keith Shamburger of Hawaii turned down the Terps in favor of Tennessee and Missouri, respectively. The latest possibility appears to be North Carolina A&T guard Richaud Pack, who reportedly has visited both Maryland and TCU and is also scheduled to visit Turgeon's old school, Texas A&M. Given that Pack wants to get his master's in international business, the Aggies might be the leader in the clubhouse since A&M graduate business school is ranked 37th nationally by U.S. News and World Report, four spots ahead of the Smith Business School in College Park.

Point guard Keith Shamburger, who played last season at Hawaii after two years at San Jose State, tweeted Tuesday night that he has received an offer to play at Maryland. The 5-11, 170-pound Shamburger started all but one game of his three-year career, averaging better than 9 points and 5 assists for the 20-11 Rainbow Warriors last season. Shamburger will be eligible to play right away as a graduate student. Shamburger is known as a reliable ballhandler (2.5-1 assist to turnover)

WASHINGTON -- The Big Ten men's basketball tournament trophy was displayed to the right of where Kevin Anderson was sitting on an occasion that ordinarily would have offered Maryland's athletic director a chance to imagine the Terps seriously competing for that sparkly prize. Anderson can only hope that his next visit to Verizon Center - site of Tuesday's news conference to announce that the 2017 Big Ten tournament will be held at the venue - occurs during a brighter period for the team and its coach.

A tumultuous offseason continued Friday for the Maryland men's basketball team, with the announcement that rising junior guard Seth Allen has decided to transfer. Rumored since Wednesday, Allen's departure became official when third-year coach Mark Turgeon signed Allen's release Friday, allowing the team's second-leading scorer to leave the program Allen becomes the fourth Maryland scholarship player, and fifth overall, to depart since the end of the Terps' disappointing 17-15 season.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. The Maryland basketball staff's recruitment of Ohio forward Esa Ahmad remains an all-out pursuit. Wednesday night, the entire staff - head coach Mark Turgeon and assistants Dustin Clark and Bino Ranson - visited with Ahmad and his parents at his Cleveland home. "They were just saying I'm a top priority and they want me to get to campus and visit," said Ahmad, a 6-foot-7 rising senior ranked the No. 17 power forward and No. 63 overall prospect in the 2015 247Composite.
