Maryland wide receiver Deon Long has been suspended by the school for two weeks for violating university policy, a school spokesperson confirmed to the Washington Post.

Terrapins coach Randy Edsall did not have an official comment on the matter, but the Post's Alex Prewitt reports that the suspension is retroactive to a prior date. The school was closed last week for spring break, and Prewitt writes that Long will rejoin the team before the conclusion of spring practice.

Long was one of the top-rated JUCO recruits in the Class of 2013, enrolling early so he could participate in spring practice. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound native of Washington, DC, is one of several elite prospects from the area to arrive on campus since Mike Locksley joined Edsall's staff.

Long was named a first team NJCAA All-American after setting the single-season receptions record with 98 catches for Iowa Western Community College in 2012. When spring practice opened earlier this month, Long was listed as a starting wide receiver along with Nigel King and Stefon Diggs.

It is possible that Long could miss Maryland's next practice, an open workout at the wide receiver's alma mater, Dunbar High School. The Terps conclude spring practice with the annual spring game on April 13 in Byrd Stadium.
