Maryland QB C.J. Brown granted sixth year
[dropcap]M[/dropcap]aryland quarterback C.J. Brown has been granted a sixth year of eligibility.
The school was informed late Tuesday that Brown’s NCAA waiver appeal had been approved, according to the Washington Post. The sixth year means that Brown, who is currently rehabbing a torn ACL suffered before the 2012 season, will have two more years of eligibility.
Brown is expected to be healthy in time to participate in preseason camp in August, but has not yet progressed beyond 7-on-7s into scrimmage situations, according to the Post.
Junior Ricardo Young, a transfer from Virginia Tech, has worked with the first-team this spring and will be the starter for Friday’s spring game.
Despite sitting out the season injured, Brown served as one of Maryland’s four captains last season. He split time with Danny O’Brien in 2011.
