Two Maryland players suspended for firing BB guns at students

Maryland freshman Lorenzo Harrison and DJ Turner have both been suspended from the Maryland football team… again.

According to reports, the two Terrapins were firing BB guns at unsuspecting students at various locations around the university campus. After three separate reports were filed last week of students being shot with the BBs, the university police were on alert and found their perpetrators.

The “shootings” took place while one student was riding a bike, another was on two students who were walking near the football stadium, and the third was hit between buildings while walking around campus.

For Lorenzo Harrison, he appears too immature to make good on the talent he has been blessed with. He was averaging 7.2 yards per carry this season and was already over 600 yards on the season. His role was growing each week within the offense prior to his suspension.

It remains unclear if he will get another chance to play football, as he now faces serious criminal charges.

Both players will face three counts of second-degree assault and three counts of reckless endangerment. Even if he is able to avoid any lasting repercussions, Maryland may be leery of allowing him to represent them on the field again.
