Florida Gators: Freshman WR Adrian Coxson Heads Back Home

Chris FaigCorrespondent IAugust 20, 2010

Freshman wideout Adrian Coxson has decided to transfer out of the University of Florida.  With a desire to move closer to home, being from Baltimore, Maryland, Coxson has announced that he is headed to Maryland to become a Terrapin.  Adrian will have to sit out this upcoming season in Maryland because he took summer classes at UF.

Coming out of high school, Coxson was rated a four-star recruit and the 35th-best receiver in the country by Rivals.com.  Last season, as a senior in high school, Coxson had a total of 1,930 yards, scoring 19 touchdowns.  He also returned four punts for touchdowns.  These superb stats earned him a spot on The Baltimore Sun's All-Metro first team.

In 2008 as a junior, Coxson played wide receiver, recording 821 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.  He also played some defense, intercepting three passes.

Coxson told The Baltimore Sun that Maryland is "a positive environment, and the coaches are really good."  For a reason that he would not disclose, Adrian simply felt Florida was no longer the right fit for him.

Adrian Coxson is the second Gator to leave the program this week.  Defensive back Jordan Haden, brother of Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden, was granted release from the team August 17th, with the freedom to transfer to another school.
