Former Maryland women's basketball guard Destiny Slocum will transfer to Oregon State, she announced on Twitter Monday.

Last month, Slocum announced she would leave Maryland after winning WBCA National Freshman of the Year. It was widely reported the Meridian, Idaho, native had a desire to play closer to home.

Slocum started all but one game this season, averaging 11.5 points and six assists. Her 204 assists were the most in the country for a rookie and a program freshman record, as were her 71 3-pointers.

Oregon State went 31-5 in the 2016-17 season under coach Scott Rueck, losing to Florida State in the Sweet 16. The Beavers were the Pac-12 regular season champions for the third consecutive year.

ESPN ranked Slocum the No. 7 player in the country of her high school class, and she headlined Maryland's No. 1-ranked recruiting class last year.

Slocum committed to Washington in high school before decommitting and signing with the Terps. Last weekend, she reportedly visited Arkansas, where former Huskies coach Mike Neighbors is the head coach.

Two weeks ago, Maryland signed four-star class of 2017 point guard Channise Lewis, the only member of the Terps' 2017 recruiting class.
