Terps dismiss starting offensive lineman

Having already lost three 2011 scholarships and stripping themselves of practice time this offseason, Maryland will now have to replace a starting member of their offensive line as well.

First-year head coach Randy Edsall announced in a press release Tuesday that guard Justin Lewis has been dismissed from the football program.  The reason for the dismissal is, of course, an unspecified violation of team rules.

“As with any organization there are policies which must be adhered to by all individuals and when they’re not, there are consequences for an individual’s actions,” Edsall said in a statement.

Lewis, who would’ve been a redshirt junior this year, started 12 games last season and was penciled in as a starter once again for 2011.  Of the 24 games in which he played, Lewis started 15 of them.

Rivals.com rated the Johnsonville, SC, product as a three-star player in the Class of 2008, and pegged him as the No. 61 guard in the country.  There’s no word yet on where Johnson may be headed.
