It is unknown where Evans will land.
"Ian came to see me today and he's decided to leave the university for some personal reasons that he has," Edsall said. "I just wished him well and hope that he gets all those things resolved and taken care of."
As a redshirt freshman, Evans appeared in four games last season for the Terps, highlighted by a career-best three tackles, two solo, against Virginia on Nov. 5 -- his first appearance. Over the course of the season, he finished with seven tackles, including one for a loss.
A native of Atco, N.J., Evans was recruited as the 25th-best player in the state of New Jersey.
According to the Times, Maryland, following Evans' departure, now has 79 scholarship players on its roster.
