Miami linebacker Juwon Young has been "suspended indefinitely for a violation of department rules," according to athletic director James Blake.
The school is reportedly investigating potential NCAA violations by "several athletes" and the suspension of Young comes from the school's compliance department, not the football coaches, according to the Palm Beach Post. Young's suspension is due to his failure to be forthcoming with the compliance department during the investigation, according to multiple reports.
The Miami Herald is reporting that the potential NCAA violations stem from players receiving luxury vehicles from a car agency and says Young is expected to not be with the team for the entire 2016 season.
Along with Young, the school is reportedly investigating whether star defensive end Al Quadin Muhammad and other football players are also guilty of potential NCAA violations, but Muhammad remains with the team for now.
Am told UM investigation into use of luxury cars extends beyond Young and AQM. Four or five UM players being investigated. Young suspended..— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) June 24, 2016
... Because he didn't come clean when UM questioned him. UM will report to NCAA if it finds violations. UM Nevin probation ends in October.— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) June 24, 2016
Muhammad recorded 54 tackles and 5 sacks for the Hurricanes in 2015 and is the team's leading returning pass rusher. Young was the Hurricanes' second-leading tackler on the season with 57 tackles in 2015.
The Hurricanes are still on NCAA probation until October, but the investigation at the present is being conducted by the school's compliance department and not the NCAA.
