Maryland WR Marcus Leak withdraws from school
Wide receiver Marcus Leak, Maryland's second-leading receiver, has withdrawn from school but says he will return in January.
"I would like to thank Coach [Randy] Edsall, my teammates and the rest of the Maryland football program for their continued support as I work through these personal matters," Leak said. "It is my intention to return to College Park in January. I look forward to rejoining my teammates and continuing my education at the University of Maryland."
The rising junior started the first seven games of 2012 but missed the last five due to a toe injury. He finished second on the team with 23 receptions for 393 yards and also scored two touchdowns.
Maryland should be able to weather the loss of Leak, especially with freshman All-American Stefon Diggs returning. Sophomore Nigel King, who started three games when Leak was injured last season, also should see his role increase.
