Maryland suspends receiver Juwann Winfree

The University of Maryland has suspended rising sophomore wide receiver Juwann Winfree indefinitely for what is being called a “violation of the student-athlete code of conduct.”

The university released a brief statement announcing the suspension, which was tweeted out by Ralph D. Russo of the Associated Press.

Standing 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Winfree was likely going to have a greater role in the Terps’ receiving game this year, what with leading receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long having left for the NFL. Obviously, this suspension throws a monkey wrench into head coach Randy Edsall’s plans.

This story is still very new, but Campus Sports will update Winfree’s situation as any and all further details become available.

Maryland was 7-6 (4-4 Big Ten) in 2014 and lost to Stanford in the Foster Farms Bowl. The team is 20-30 in four seasons under Edsall and opens the 2015 campaign in College Park against Richmond on September 5.
