Wednesday, the Maryland Terrapins learned wide receiver Adrian Coxson will become the eighth player to seek a transfer from coach Randy Edsall's program. "This is my second and last time moving on..it's what's best for me and my family," Coxson wrote on his Twitter account. "I hate to leave but I have to."
Coxson, a redshirt freshman from Baltimore City College, appeared in two games for Maryland this season, recording four catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. His best game came against the Boston College Eagles, when he caught three passes for 78 yards and a score. He transferred to Maryland from the Florida Gators.
Testudo Times assesses the impact of Coxson's departure on the program:
The loss of Coxson hurts because he was young, talented, and could have helped open up some more pipelines to Baltimore. But this isn't a travesty for the Terps. They've still got talent at wide receiver, and a bevy of open scholarships to help fill the void.
