When Army heads to summer camp the first day of August, they’ll do so without the services of one of their top backup defensive linemen, while the status of a second member of that unit is currently very much up in the air.
According to Sal Interdonato of the Times Herald-Record, defensive end Quentin Kantaris (pictured) has left the service academy and plans to transfer from West Point. The sophomore plans to move back to his hometown of Moorpark, Calif., and plans on attending a junior college in the city.
As a freshman in 2010, Kantaris played in nine games, and was listed as the No. 2 defensive end on the post-spring depth chart.
Additionally, Interdonato reports that Chris Swain is currently not listed on the Black Knights’ latest roster, although it’s unclear why. The senior defensive tackle played in 21 games the past two seasons, and is/was one of the academy’s most experienced returning linemen.
