Maryland running back Wes Brown has returned to the Terps for spring football, according to CSN Baltimore.
A former three-star recruit from the DC area, Brown was suspended from the football team last November by interim coach Mike Locksley due to violating the student athlete code of conduct. It was the second time that Brown had been suspended from the program.
New Maryland coach DJ Durkin did not address why Brown’s suspension was lifted, but it could just be him giving everyone on the roster a clean slate. Just the same, Brown has spent more time off the field than on it during his time at Maryland and not just due to injury.
Brown missed all of 2013 after being charged with assault of a police officer, but those charges were dropped. In 2014, he missed spring practice after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum.
As a result, Brown has really only ever been a rotational player at Maryland and has just 1,055 yards and 11 touchdowns across three seasons.
But Durkin appears ready to give Brown yet another chance, so stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates from Maryland’s spring practice!
