ACC: Adrian Coxson

Offseason spotlight: Maryland

February, 13, 2012
Our offseason spotlight series continues today with Maryland. A reminder: This series features individual players, position groups and coaches who really need to have big offseasons -- starting this spring.


Spotlight: Wide receivers.

2011 summary: This was a group that had too many drops to count, and two suspended players in Ronnie Tyler and Quintin McCree. While switching between quarterbacks Danny O'Brien and C.J. Brown, Maryland had one of the worst passing offenses in the ACC. Kevin Dorsey was excellent through the first quarter of the season, but struggled, was injured, and his production dropped off after missing two games. He led the team with 573 yards and three touchdowns on 45 catches. Kerry Boykins had 37 catches for 430 yards.

The skinny: Hello, Stefon Diggs. This is the anticipated position for Maryland’s top recruit, who will join the team this summer. Tony Logan has graduated and Adrian Coxson, a redshirt freshman, has transferred to Stony Brook. Outside of Dorsey and Boykins, the rest of the receiving corps owns a combined 13 receptions for 102 yards. The Terps still have Marcus Leak, who caught eight passes for 61 yards and a score against Florida State, but he was then held without a catch against BC and didn’t play in the final four games. Devin Burns, a sophomore, is a former quarterback who has one catch for 17 yards. Tyrek Cheeseboro, who suffered a torn ACL on special teams last season, also returns. Regardless of who Maryland's quarterback is for 2012, the Terps will need their receivers to help him out more.

Terps' WR to transfer

December, 14, 2011
If you're keeping a running total, it's now up to eight players who have asked for and been granted their release from Maryland.

The latest is receiver Adrian Coxson, who has decided not to return to the football team in 2012, according to a school spokesman. Coxson, a redshirt freshman, will be granted his release and indicated he will transfer at the end of this semester.

“We appreciate everything that Adrian has done for us and hope everything works out for him in his future endeavors,” coach Randy Edsall said in a prepared statement.

Coxson, who transferred from Florida prior to the 2010 season, played in nine games this past season, all as a reserve wideout and on special teams. He had four receptions for 90 yards with one touchdown.
