Terrapins running back D.J. Adams has been granted a release from his scholarship and will seek to transfer, according to reports.
"The 2011 Maryland Football season proved to be extremely challenging and disappointing for me and my fellow teammates," Adams said in a release sent to The Diamondback. "After prayerful consideration, I believe it is best for me to continue my education and collegiate football career elsewhere. I take with me cherished memories of Terrapin football, lifelong friendships and valuable life lessons. I wish Coach Edsall, the coaching staff, and the Maryland football program as a whole much success today and always."
Adams had played sparingly for the Terrapins in 2011, getting just 40 carries on the season with 4 rushing touchdowns and being inactive for three games. As a redshirt freshman in 2010, Adams had 11 rushing touchdowns. Adams joins defensive end David Mackall as the first two Maryland players to seek transfer during the Randy Edsall era.
