Maryland defensive lineman Isaiah Ross has been suspended for a year for violations of university policy. Another player -- offensive lineman Pete White -- is leaving the team although he remains enrolled at the school. Ross is also still enrolled.
Maryland would not offer details about Ross. The only offense cited in the university's "Policy on Conduct and Ethics for Student-Athletes" and the "Drug Policy for Student-Athletes" that specifically mandates a year-long suspension is a third violation of the drug policy.
Ross, who would have been a fifth-year senior on the team, missed most of the 2011 season with a knee injury. He played in six games last season and had four tackles.
White, a backup, was a junior last season.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
