Maryland defensive lineman Olu Oluwatimi opted out of the 2020 football season Wednesday, a team spokesperson confirmed with Testudo Times Wednesday.

The DeMatha product started all 12 games for the Terps a season ago, totaling 22 tackles, six of which resulted in a loss of yards. Oluwatimi is just one of two seniors at the position for Maryland, leaving Sam Okuayinonu as the only remaining fourth-year defensive lineman.

Oluwatimi joins five other Terps to opt out of the season, one of which, sophomore Jalen Alexander, is also a defensive tackle. Four of the team’s six players that chose to not play this fall are on the defensive side of the ball.

Alexander, quarterback Josh Jackson, cornerback Vincent Flythe, offensive guard Austin Fontaine and linebacker TJ Kautai are the other Maryland players who opted out of the season this summer, none of which have announced a potential opt-in yet.
