At least it’s not another transfer?
That would be the good news. The bad news, of course, is Maryland will be down another player for the 2012 season thanks to an off-field issue involving a member of head coach Randy Edsall‘s first recruiting class.
The Terps announced Wednesday that redshirt freshman linebacker Lukas Foreman has been suspended for one year due to a violation of the school’s code of conduct. As is normally the case, the school did not detail what specific violation was involved.
“Being a University of Maryland student-athlete carries a tremendous honor and responsibility,” athletic director Kevin Anderson said in a statement. “As much as we appreciate the effort this young man gave to the program this season, he was unable to live up to that responsibility. We’re certainly disappointed, but hope that he will use this as a learning experience.”
Foreman was a redshirt member of the Terps’ 2011 recruiting class, but took a redshirt year his true freshman season.
Edsall had moved Foreman from defensive back to linebacker this spring.
