While it hasn't been confirmed, it seems likely that Howard will seek an NCAA hardship waiver in hopes to play right away.
Howard leaves Maryland after a disappointing junior season, in which he saw his stats drop across the board, and his playing time decrease from nearly 33 minutes a game to barely 23 during the 2012-2013 campaign. Howard's best season as a Terrapin came as a sophomore during the 2011-2012 campaign, when he averaged 6.5 points and 3.7 assists.
Howard has yet to announce which schools he is considering.
He will have one year of eligibility remaining.
