Terps drop Military Bowl, still finish winning season
After being suspended for the season following an run-in with police over the summer, RB Wes Brown has fulfilled necessary requirements given to him following his suspension and is expected to re-enroll at Maryland, Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun is reporting.
According to the report, nothing yet is official, but everything necessary for his readmission remains on track.
Brown was originally suspended from the university for one year after being charged with second-degree assault, theft, and wiretapping. Those charges were later dropped.
The university's ruling was to be reduced to one semester if he hit certain "benchmarks" that included academic work and speaking to youth football teams. According to the report from the Sun, that is what Brown has accomplished.
Brown celebrated the apparent news with a tweet on Thursday evening:
