Maryland forward Ashton Pankey has announced that he will leave the school and transfer closer back to his home in New York. What will this mean for the Terrapins recruiting class?

Maryland power forward Ashton Pankey will transfer from the school and look for a new place to play that's closer back to his home in New York according to a tweet by Jeff Ermann of Inside MD Sports.

Last season, Pankey averaged 4.7 points per game and 4.9 rebounds per game. He saw the floor for a total of 20.3 minutes per game. His shooting was decent, averaging 45.2 percent of shots made from the floor.

Pankey also tweeted out a good bye message to the Maryland fans.

The university confirmed that Pankey was leaving the program courtesy of the Terps insider twitter account of the Washington Post.

The Terrapins will have to hope that their new recruiting class will be able to replace many of the players that have left such as Terrell Stoglin and Mychal Parker.
