Terps transfer Mychal Parker won't play for Loyola after all

The Baltimore Sun

Mychal Parker will not finish his college basketball career at Loyola.

According to a source close to the Greyhounds, Parker did not fulfill his academic requirements during his last semester at Maryland, rendering him ineligible to play for Loyola. The source said Parker, who has two years of eligibility remaining, could end up at a Division II or NAIA school.

Parker, a four-star prospect coming out of the Miller School in Charlottesville, Va., selected the Terps over several ACC and Big East schools in 2010. He played in just 13 games as a freshman, but appeared in all 32 of Maryland's contests as a sophomore, averaging 4.3 points and three rebounds.

Parker decided to transfer from Maryland in April, and the school later announced that he would have been suspended for the 2012-13 season because of a violation of the university's student-athlete code of conduct.

In an interview with The Sun shortly after his commitment to Loyola, Parker expressed excitement for resuming his college career with the Greyhounds.

“It’s just a new program, a new year, a new me,” Parker said. “I’m definitely excited to get back on the court. I’m just ready to get back and tear it up.”
