Less than 24 hours before Rutgers’ Board of Governors is scheduled to meet to discuss what’s been described only as “athletics issues,” another issue as it pertains to Kyle Flood‘s football program has made an ill-timed appearance.
According to MyCentralJersey.com. Lloyd Terry has been arrested in connection to a series of armed home invasions. Terry, a Scarlet Knights fullback, was officially charged with armed robbery, armed burglary and conspiracy to commit the armed robbery.
Technically, he’s an ex-Scarlet Knight fullback as the program has summarily dismissed him from the team.
Terry becomes the sixth football player arrested in connection to armed robberies/a separate assault case and the sixth to be dismissed. The Central Jersey website writes that, “[i]n all, 11 current and former Rutgers students are facing charges” stemming from the spree. It’s alleged that Terry was one of three masked men — one a then-current teammate, another a former Scarlet Knight football player — who forced themselves into a home during an April 26 incident.
After redshirting as a true freshman in 2013, Terry appeared in one game during the 2014 season — the Quick Lane Bowl win over North Carolina.
In addition to the off-field issues involving a handful of his now-former players, Flood also has an off-field issue of his alleged own doing with which to deal. Flood is the subject of an ongoing investigation into alleged direct contact of a professor to discuss the eligibility of one of the players arrested and dismissed because of the alleged crime spree.
