07:13 AM ET 05.27 | Antonio Barton's transfer will take him from one side of Tennessee to the other, perhaps irking college basketball fans in an entirely different state. After announcing last month that he was leaving Memphis, [Barton] said he thought Maryland "would be a good fit" in order to finish his college basketball career. After meeting with Terps coach Mark Turgeon and members of the team on a trip to College Park earlier this month, the 6-foot-2 point guard said the visit "went tremendous." But that was before Tennessee, after dismissing junior point guard Trae Golden from the team, became involved in recruiting Barton. Hours after his older brother Will tweeted Barton's plans to play for the Volunteers, the former Lake Clifton standout told the Associated Press on Sunday that he had chosen to play his senior year in Knoxville.
