Marcus Leak re-enrolls at Maryland after missing 2013 season
Question of the Day
After returning home to North Carolina on a personal leave of absence during the summer, wide receiver Marcus Leak has re-enrolled at Maryland for the spring semester, the school announced Thursday.
Leak withdrew from the university following a 2012 season in which he caught 23 passes for 393 yards and two touchdowns, despite an injury that kept him out of the team’s last five games.
His best performance of the 2012 season came in a 20-18 loss to N.C. State on Oct. 20 when he caught four passes for 94 yards.
Maryland’s receiving corps was ravaged by injuries during the 2013 season, including losing star wideouts Stefon Diggs and Deon Long to broken legs in the same game, Oct. 19 against Wake Forest.
In their places, receivers Levern Jacobs, Amba Etta-Tawo, and Nigel King filled in respectably, especially considering injuries that affected the quarterback position.
Coming out of high school, Leak was a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com. Maryland’s 2014 recruiting class includes one four-star receiver already, Juwann Winfree of New Jersey.
