Caleb Porzel Leaves Maryland Football

Caleb Porzel will not be putting on the pads this season for Maryland, as Patrick Stevens of D1Scourse is reporting that Porzel will be leaving the team due to academic troubles.:

The speedy sophomore missed all of spring practice to focus on academics, so his exit from the program doesn't come as a huge surprise. He is the third player with academic struggles to leave the program since the end of spring ball, joining guard Lamar Young and linebacker Javarie Johnson.

Porzel, a 5-foot-7, 180-pound pinball who Maryland hoped could function as its version of Darren Sproles or Trindon Holliday, missed the first month of last season with injuries before appearing in the Terps' last seven games. He ran for 75 yards on 30 carries, and he also caught three passes for 24 yards.

Maryland still has four scholarship halfbacks on the roster, so it is doubtful that Porzel will be missed. However, one hopes that he can put it together academically to allow him to return to football.
