The exodus of Maryland football players after a 2-10 season in new coach Randy Edsall's first year is continuing. Defensive end David Mackall and running back D.J. Adams are already leaving the program. Now, starting right tackle R.J. Dill has announced his plans to request a release from his scholarship. Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times has the news:
"I regret to inform the Terrapin faithful that my family and I have decided it would be best for me to move on with both my academic and athletic endeavors," Dill said in an e-mail. "Therefore I have requested and been granted a release from the Maryland football program. I leave here with great memories of the university and Terp Nation."
Dill has started 30 consecutive games at right tackle, the most for one Terps offensive lineman since Edwin Williams. He is on target to graduate in December.
