The team announced Saturday morning that senior cornerback Jordan Love and senior tight end James Oboh were suspended for violation of unspecified NCAA rules. No other information on the reasoning behind their suspensions was available.
Love played in 14 games, starting 13. He led the defense in pass breakups with 10 and ranked seventh in tackles with 64.
Oboh played in all 15 contests, starting 12. He caught 24 balls for 354 yards and was tied with injured junior wide receiver Spencer Wilkins for the team lead in touchdowns catches with four.
Freshman Juleon Killikelly-Lee, a Gwynn Oak native and Woodlawn graduate, will make his first career start at cornerback. Killikelly-Lee has made seven tackles in 11 games this season.
Sophomore Sean Mooney will replace Oboh at tight end. But the Tigers could go to a three-receiver set frequently.
