Cornerback Avery Graham leaves Maryland football team

Maryland announced Wednesday that cornerback Avery Graham has left the football team and has been given his unconditional release to transfer wherever he'd like.


“I’m disappointed that Avery has decided to leave us, but he didn’t feel he was going to be a starter in the fall,” Terps coach Randy Edsall said in a news release. “Avery was a hard worker during his time here and we wish him well.”

Graham, a redshirt junior listed behind Jeremiah Johnson on Maryland's spring depth chart, finished his Maryland career with 17 tackles in 13 games. The Clarksburg graduate was a backup at the STAR linebacker position in 2011 before injuring his knee against Clemson on Oct. 15 and missing the rest of the year.

Graham is the 13th Terps player since the end of the 2011 season to leave the program.
