Maryland Running Back D.J. Adams Released From Scholarship, According To Reports

Terrapins running back D.J. Adams has been granted a release from his scholarship and will seek to transfer, according to reports.

The Maryland Terrapins have released running back D.J. Adams from his scholarship, according to a report by Jakob Engelke of Inside Maryland Sports. Adams will seek a transfer to another university.

"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.
