Three Maryland reserves not returning to football team

March 05, 1996|By Paul McMullen

Three veteran reserves have left the Maryland football team.

Jonathan Johnson, who had one season of eligibility left, has withdrawn from school. A cornerback from Pahokee, Fla., Johnson had injury problems and played sparingly behind his brother A. J. and Chad Scott last season.

Defensive tackle Cornelius White, who was in on 27 tackles in 10 games last season, was academically dismissed from school. White, a redshirt sophomore from Newburgh, N.Y., had two years of eligibility remaining.

Robert Moore, a senior from North Amityille, N.Y., who has played linebacker and fullback, was dismissed from the team by coach Mark Duffner. "It's for matters related to football," and it's nothing legally or academically that he's done," Duffner said.

Maryland opens spring practice Friday. Duffner announced that the Terps will hold an inter squad scrimmage at Mount St. Joseph High on March 31 at 2 p.m.
