On the same day one former Maryland player announced his new school, yet another Terrapin has decided to become a former Terrapin as well.
In a press release, Maryland announced that defensive back Avery Graham has decided to (their words) “quit the football team”. The release goes on to state that Graham will be given his unconditional release if he decides to transfer to another institution.
“I’m disappointed that Avery has decided to leave us, but he didn’t feel he was going to be a starter in the fall,” head coach Randy Edsall said in a statement. “Avery was a hard worker during his time here and we wish him well.”
After redshirting as a true freshman in 2009, Graham played in a total of 13 games the past two years. His 2011 season ended prematurely courtesy of a knee injury suffered in a mid-October loss to Clemson.
He had been listed as a No. 2 corner on the Terps’ spring depth chart.
