Former Maryland women's basketball point guard Destiny Slocum will transfer to Oregon State, she announced Monday night. "After a lot of prayer and thought, I'm excited to announce my commitment to Oregon State University! I can't wait to be apart of this amazing program, it is definitely something special," she wrote on Twitter. Slocum, who was named the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's National Freshman of the Year after helping lead the Terps to the Big Ten Conference tournament title and a Sweet 16 appearance, announced she was transferring from Maryland in early April. Corvallis, Ore., is about 430 miles from Slocum's hometown of Meridian, Idaho. During the season, Slocum told The Baltimore Sun that she initially thought Maryland was too far away from her family; as a highly touted point guard, she initially committed to Washington.
