Since I was the 12th man on my high school basketball team, I have always had a soft spot for the Maryland walk ons. This year we lost one who wanted to leave and transfer down so he could get some serious playing time. David Pearman did just that when he left for the Eastern Shore to become a Salisbury Sea Gull.
If playing time is what Pearman was looking for, he found it. He has averaged a team high 31.7 minutes through their first 17 games, and he has started 14 of them. Pearman is averaging 14.3 points per game while hitting on 39% of his three pointers.
While I am sure he had a lot of fun being a part of the Maryland Basketball team for three years, I bet he is truly enjoying the opportunity to get some serious burn. Years down the road he will be able to say he was part of an NCAA tournament team, and also say that he got to spend some time on the court. Kind of the best of both worlds if you ask me.
