Pe'Shon Howard received a legislative relief waiver that will allow him to play at USC immediately.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Southern California has added a transfer from Maryland to its men's basketball team under new coach Andy Enfield, giving the Trojans three transfers for the upcoming season.

Point guard Pe'Shon Howard received a legislative relief waiver from the NCAA that allowed him to return home to be closer to his ailing grandmother.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder started 44 of 83 games in three seasons at Maryland. He averaged 3.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists last season while helping lead the Terrapins to the NIT semifinals.

As a senior, Howard will be eligible for the upcoming season.

Enfield said Monday that Howard's grandmother helped raise him in Los Angeles. He attended Oak Hill Academy in Virginia.

Last week, center D.J. Haley joined the Trojans after graduating from VCU this summer. He will have one year of eligibility at USC.

Howard joins two other transfers at USC. Guard Katin Reinhardt left UNLV to be closer to his hometown of Dana Point, and forward Darion Clark left Charlotte. Both are sophomores who will have to sit out this season under NCAA rules.
