San Diego State: Two of four suspended players reinstated
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]an Diego State coach Rocky Long has reinstated two of the four players he held out of spring practice.
Kicker Seamus McMorrow, wide receiver Larry Clark, safety Darius Guillory and running back Brandon Wright were all held out of spring practice for what Long said was a variety of issues.
Long has not discussed the reason the four sophomores were suspended, but has indicated that they would not be allowed to come back to the team unless they fulfilled certain requirements by the end of spring break.
McMorrow and Clark have now rejoined the team, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
When asked about Guillory and Wright’s status, Long said, “I don’t talk about guys that aren’t on the team.”
After missing spring ball, McMorrow and Clark will be expected to work their way up from the bottom of the depth chart, and Long will be keeping a close eye on the pair.
“Right now they are (in good standing),” he said. “Things can always change.”
McMorrow, who was also suspended for one game in September 2012 for an unspecified rules violation, was the Aztecs’ starting punter and kickoff specialist as a true freshman in 2012. He averaged 41.7 yards per punt in his first year of college football.
Going into spring ball, he was expected to retain both kickoff and punting jobs while also taking on placekicking duties in 2013. At least for the moment, senior Wes Feer will be the Aztecs’ kicker and junior Joel Alesi is the punter.
Clark redshirted in 2011 and did not appear in any games last season.
Guillory saw action in all 13 games in 2012 and totaled nine tackles.
As a redshirt freshman in 2012, Wright saw in 12 games as a kick returner and averaged 17.8 yards per return.
