It seemed simple for Wally Judge. Maryland or Rutgers. Gary Williams or Mike Rice.

Of course, Williams then announced his retirement, and everything changed for the former Kansas State transfer. At the time, a source close to Judge said the Washington D.C. native would likely wait and see before deciding on his next destination. 

With Texas A&M’s Mark Turgeon accepting the Terrapins’ head coaching position on Monday night, the wait is apparently over.

Judge has picked Rutgers over Maryland, multiple sources told CBSSports.com. 

A key aspect in Judge's decision was likely Rutgers associate head coach Dave Cox. Cox has ties in the D.C. area and even coached in the DC Assault AAU program, which was Judge's travel team in high school. Judge was a McDonald's All-American at Arlington Country Day (Fla.).

The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 5.5 points and 3.8 rebounds last season for Kansas State before leaving the team in late January. Judge will sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules, and will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Scarlet Knights.
