Former Maryland guard Marcus Dockery has found a new home via the transfer portal and it won’t take him far.
Dockery announced that he will be transferring to Howard University. He made his announcement via Instagram.
“I would like to thank each school that has recruited me during this process,” Dockery said. “Thank you to my family, coaches, as well as other supporters for their
advisement in my decision. I wanted to be a part of the change and wholeheartedly believe in Coach Blakeney, as well as the rest of his staff. With that being said, I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at the prestigious Howard University! I am 100% Committed to Howard University.”
The Washington, D.C. native was a three-star recruit in the 2020 class according to 247Sports and Rivals playing at Bishop O’Connell High School and highly-touted AAU basketball program DC Premier.
He appeared in 14 games as a freshman, averaging 1.4 points per game. Dockery appeared in just eight games this season, averaging 1.8 points per game. He scored 10 of his 14 points this season in a career-high 13 minutes against Iowa.
Marcus Dockery will join a Howard program coming off its best season in 20 years. HU finished second in the MEAC under head coach Kenneth Blakeney, going 16-13 overall. The squad will lose leading scorer Kyle Foster but return several key players including Steve Settle and MEAC Freshman of the Year Elijah Hawkins.
