Miami Football Suspends Linebacker Juwon Young, AQM being investigated

UM could be a little thinner at LB heading into fall camp.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Last last night there was a lot of buzz about Juwon Young being dismissed at UM.

Well unfortunately the smoke may be a fire.....

This is not the news 'Canes fans were wanting to hear on a Friday afternoon.

Canes Insight's Pete Ariz and Barry Jackson of the Herald broke the story just minutes ago.

The report cites multiple sources within the program.

The issue apparently is the use of a luxury car.

And what's worse, there is mention that Al-Quadin Muhammad is being investigated as well.

AQM is expected to be a huge part of the defense this year as one of the best returning pass rushers in the ACC.

Jackson does say,

"Multiple sources did told Ariz they expect Muhammad to be on the team this season."

So the 'Canes may have dodged a bullet there.

Young certainly would have contributed in 2016, competing for a starting spot at MLB.

So even if AQM is okay, this is still a significant loss.

At this point, things are not looking/sounding good.

Miami absolutely can not take any chances with issues involving possible infractions.

Could there be more to this story? According to Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post, it sure looks like it

Brian London of 790 The Ticket had this to report:

Yeah, this isn't looking good.

Peter Ariz of went on 560 WQAM to discuss this story. Here is my live-tweet of this radio appearance:


Yes. Sorry if that was unclear.

That ended Ariz's radio appearance. Shortly after hopping off the radio, he added this postscript:

We'll have much more on this story as we learn it.
