Coach Ken McDonald announced today that freshman forward Terrence Boyd has been released from his scholarship and has left the men’s basketball team.
“Terrence Boyd is no longer with the Hilltopper program,” McDonald said in a press release this afternoon. “Unfortunately things didn’t work out with Terrence, but we wish him the best with his future.”
The San Diego native was the highest-profile recruit in the six-player class of 2009 for McDonald. He ranked in the Rivals.com Top 100 for a period last season and hasn’t played basketball in the fall the past two seasons due to transferring schools.
Boyd is now the second player from McDonald’s spring 2009 signing period to leave the team before the season. Freshman forward David Laury was released from the team last month for undisclosed reasons.
