Former Maryland Football Running Back D.J. Adams To Transfer To Portland State

D.J. Adams, a former Maryland football running back that decided to leave the program following a disappointing season under coach Randy Edsall, has transferred to I-AA Portland State, he told Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times. Adams will be eligible to play for Portland State next year.

Adams was released from his scholarship on November 30 after a year in which he barely saw the field for reasons many didn't understand. Adams showed promise as a freshman as a short-down yardage back, but Edsall elected to use Justus Pickett in those situations for most of the year. There were reports that Edsall and Adams didn't get along personally, which is why he was benched.

Adams finished the season with just 40 carries and four touchdowns. He was made ineligible for three games last year.
