Another Terp bailing on the S.S. Edsall

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.”

Graham becomes the kajillionth player to transfer from Maryland since Edsall took over for Ralph Friedgen, who was fired following the 2010 regular season.

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.

    Does he have a team left. Holy cow, I sure hope WV does not blow it with these guys. If ever there was a team you can not loose to it is Maryland.

    Yes a bunch on guys that would always be 3rd 4th or 5th on the depth chart have left. Making room for more talent. It’s been rumored a handful of xfers are wanting in. Most that have left except 4 are xfer down. Dill DOB Garca and Adams would’ve been nice but none are program changers

    I think this team needs to win at least 5 games for Edsall to save face. But other than maybe William & Mary, I don’t see a winnable game on the schedule.
