Maryland freshman offensive lineman Nick Brigham has withdrawn from the university for personal reasons, a team spokesman said Wednesday.
Brigham, a 6-foot-2, 280-pound guard from Atlanta, was a four-star prospect and the No. 28 player in Georgia, according to 247Sports.com. He never appeared in a game for Maryland.
Brigham, a 3.9 student in high school, committed to the Terps in March 2011 shortly after a visit to College Park.
"And so I went there, looked at it completely, objectively," Brigham told The Sun. "Would I still love this campus even if I didn’t have football? And I said, yeah. I love the campus. It’s a great place academically, great professors, great football program, great coaches, great guys, great campus. It wasn’t really too hard of a decision to make.”
With Brigham's departure, Maryland has just one scholarship freshman offensive lineman in Mike Madaras, who has played this season.
