Marcus Leak Withdraws From School, Will Return in January

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Maryland loses one of their starting receivers for the year.

Maryland wide receiver Marcus Leak has withdrawn from the University of Maryland for personal reasons, but will return to school in January, according to a statement from the school. Leak reportedly has no academic problems, and will be spending this time in North Carolina with his family.

The lesser known of Maryland's two 2011 North Carolina wide receiver prospects (after Nigel King), it was Leak who made an immediate impact on the program. As a true freshman two season ago, he played in seven games (starting two), and caught 12 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. Last season, he started the first seven games before breaking his toe, finishing with 23 receptions for 393 yards and two touchdowns.

Leak was still recovering from the toe injury, but was expected to be on of Maryland's starters at wide receiver, alongside super-studs Stefon Diggs and Deon Long. Maryland's receiving corps will be fine - King, who had a great spring, should step right in, and the Brothers Jacob are among a score of other players who should be ready to make an impact.

We wish Leak the best of luck at home, and look forward to seeing him as a Terrapin again next year.
