Jerome Junior Suspended From UConn Football Team

UConn safety Jerome Junior has been suspended from the team for a violation of team rules.

The Connecticut Huskies will most likely be without an expected starting safety when they reconvene for spring ball and beyond.

The school announced that Jerome Junior, who would have been a redshirt senior, has been suspended from the team for a "violation of team rules" and will not be enrolled at the university for the fall 2012 semester.

University of Connecticut safety Jerome Junior (Baltimore, Md.) has been suspended from the team for a violation of team rules. He is no longer enrolled at the University and will not be for the fall 2012 semester as well. Junior was to be a redshirt senior this fall. He had 60 tackles in 2011, which was fourth on the team. The University will have no further comment on this matter.

Junior played in all 12 games during 2011 and led the Huskies in tackles, adding one interception. Though occasionally susceptible to lapses in coverage, Junior has a nose for the ball carrier which the Huskies will miss.
