Junior WR leaving Maryland, eligible to play in 2014

Old Dominion v Maryland

Maryland will enter the Big Ten this fall with one of the best wide receiver units in the conference. That unit will not include Nigel King, a junior who reportedly has been granted a release from his scholarship in order to pursue playing opportunities elsewhere.

“I would like to thank all of my coaches, teammates and the rest of the athletic department staff for their support during my time at the University of Maryland,” King said in a statement, according to The Baltimore Sun. “I was able to fulfill my goals of playing college football and, most importantly, earning my degree.”

King did in fact graduate from Maryland, which means he would be eligible to play right away at any other FBS school if he can find a spot on another program’s roster in time for the fall season.

King was fifth on Maryland in receiving last season with 33 receptions for 450 yards and a team-high four touchdowns. Despite his contributions last season, The Baltimore Sun reports he was projected to be buried on the depth chart behind players like Stefon Diggs and Deon Long.

The Baltimore Sun credited Terrapin Times with being the first to report news of the transfer.

    I actually do like Maryland. Like the Big Ten move. Can’t stand Edsall. Fridge may not have been the guy, but they did him very wrong. As for my team. Nice try! ;)

    Hey I agree Fridge was done wrong. Still can’t abandon my team over it. Edsall didn’t handle Ralph’s release it was Kevin Anderson who handled that disaster
