Kevin Newsome has quit the Temple University football team.
The former Penn State University transfer, who suffered a sprained AC joint last March, is expected to graduate from Temple this summer and, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, will not play this fall.
The 6-foot-2, 231-pound Newsome, a standout high school quarterback from Virginia, was expected to contribute at H-back this season.
Newsome, recruited as a quarterback, left Penn State in August 2011. He was out of football for a year while attending Tidewater (Va.) Community College, which does not have a football team.
Newsome arrived on Temple's campus a day before last year's training camp began. Consequently, he was not given the opportunity to battle Chris Coyer in camp for the starting job at quarterback.
