Randy Edsall just lost one of his linebackers for the entire next season, as freshman Lukas Foreman has been suspended for one full year.
The Maryland athletic department has reportedly suspended freshman linebacker Lukas Foreman for a year, according to the Washington Post.
Lukas Foreman, a freshman Maryland linebacker, has been suspended one year because of a violation of school's code of conduct, school says.— Terrapins Insider (@TerpsInsider) May 2, 2012
This is the third such violation of the student code of conduct this week, as Terrell Stoglin and Mychal Parker were issued similar suspensions on Monday. But we don't know for sure if this suspension is for the same reason as the suspensions issued to Stoglin and Parker, which are believed to be drug related in nature.
Foreman came to Maryland as a rangy safety, but he was moved to linebacker once he got to College Park. He redshirted the 2011 season, so he still has four years of eligibility, if he chooses to still use them at Maryland. This suspension could be difficult for Maryland's defense as they transition to a 304 defense, which puts a greater emphasis on linebacker depth.
