Wide receiver Daniel Adams will transfer from New Mexico closer to home to play for the Maryland Terrapins. Adams played his high school football at Dunbar High School.
Former New Mexico Lobos wide receiver and Dunbar High School player Daniel Adams will be transferring closer to home, joining the Maryland Terrapins, according to a tweet by Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times.
Former New Mexico WR Daniel Adams has transferred to Maryland, the school said.— Patrick Stevens (@D1scourse) June 26, 2012
The receiver signed with the Lobos last season and while he dressed for the first two games, he did not see the field at all last season. This transfer could have been influenced with his former New Mexico coach, Mike Locksley taking over as offensive coordinator for the Terrapins.
Adams will have to sit out the next season per NCAA regulations, but a full year dedicated to learning the Maryland offense as well as training could play dividends for Adams. Maryland certainly hopes that Adams will be a player that they can rely on in the foreseeable future.
