UConn redshirt senior DB Jerome Junior was kicked off the football team for "violation of team rules." Here's the SBNation article:
Not only is Junior a former Edsall player, according to the article he's from Baltimore. The Terps could definitely use some help in the secondary, depending on the health of Kenny Tate and Matt Robinson, so I would think that Junior could be a good addition to the team.
Three things I can think of that would stand in the way of Junior coming to MD:
1) We have no idea (yet) what he did to get kicked off the team, so we can't be sure if we'd want him or if he'd even qualify to play here (if it was academics)
2) RE doesn't put up with any shenanigans from his players, so it's tough to imagine he would take a guy his former school kicked off the team, even if he had a good relationship with RE when they were both at UConn.
3) Do transfer rules apply when you are kicked off a team? Would Junior have to sit out a year if he came to MD? Can UConn block him from coming to MD and reuniting with Edsall if they kicked him off the team? I would think if you are kicked off a team then you should be exempt from most transfer rules, but that's common sense, and they and NCAA rules don't seem to get along. If anyone knows the answer to this that would be great.
So should we go after this guy? I would say yes with what we know right now, since we really do need help on defense.
