Maryland running back D.J. Adams is leaving school, The Baltimore Sun reported.
Adams scored 11 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman in 2010 but barely played this year, when new coach Randy Edsall took over from Ralph Friedgen.
In a statement he sent to The Sun, Adams said: "The 2011 Maryland football season proved to be extremely challenging and disappointing for me and my fellow teammates. After prayerful consideration, I believe it is best for me to continue my education and my collegiate football career elsewhere.
"I take with my cherished memories of Terrapin football, lifelong friendships and valuable life lessons. I wish Coach Edsall, the coaching staff and the Maryland football program as a whole much success today and always."
