Miami Hurricanes sophomore defensive lineman Al-Quadin Muhammad has been suspended for the team’s Saturday season opener against Bethune-Cookman for what is being called a “violation of team rules,” even though coach Al Golden said days ago that no players would be suspended for the game.
A former four-star recruit out of New Jersey’s legendary Don Bosco High School, Muhammad posted six tackles and two sacks in limited action last season. His presence isn’t likely to affect Miami’s standing in tomorrow’s game, as the Hurricanes are sure to dominate Bethune-Cookman, but hopefully this is the first and last time he finds himself in Golden’s doghouse.
Muhammad has a boatload of talent that includes the ability to play up front and also linebacker, and he could very well be the key to Miami taking a step forward this year.
Hopefully, he can get back on the field and stay there starting next weekend against Florida Atlantic.
