COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland's football team has lost a defensive lineman but gained a cornerback and a wide receiver.

Sharrod Mack, a defensive tackle who was in on 37 tackles last season, is no longer with the Terps after what coach Mark Duffner said "was a failure to consistently complete team responsibilities." Duffner said he wasn't sure if Mack, who would have been a junior, will return to school. Mack did not participate in spring practice.

Mack was suspended for one game by Duffner last season.

Senior cornerback Gene Green, meanwhile, who was suspended for the second half of last season, is back with the team. Green started at the beginning of last season.

In addition, the Terps brought in one more freshman scholarship player. Duan Jones, who didn't receive the necessary test scores for freshman eligibility during the winter signing period, since did so and signed a letter of intent with the Terps on Friday.

Following Jermaine Lewis and Mancel Johnson, Jones, 5 feet 10, 160 pounds, is the third football/track and field standout from Eleanor Roosevelt High in Prince George's County to sign with the Terps in as many years.

He caught three passes for 131 yards, including touchdowns of 77 and 32 yards, for the Maryland all-stars in the Chesapeake Football Classic last month.
