Maryland running back Wes Brown is listed on the team's roster this spring, as reflected on the program's website, and practiced with the team during the first session open to the media on Tuesday.
Brown had been suspended indefinitely in November under interim head coach Mike Locksley for conduct detrimental to the team, which was his second suspension during his time with the Terrapins.
Head coach DJ Durkin did not address Brown's status when meeting with the media, but did make note of the sudden depth at the running back position that also includes Virginia Tech transfer Trey Edmunds.
"All those guys I think have definite strengths and the good thing is they're different than the next guy which makes it nice," Durkin said.
"I look at that position right now, we've really helped ourselves already and then we have a couple more freshmen coming in this summer that will help us as well. So we took a spot right there and I think we were pretty thin prior to the signing period and now we have a spot we have some good depth there."
Maryland loses running back Brandon Ross to graduation after he carried the ball 150 times for 958 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2015.
As Durkin alluded to, Maryland will bring in freshmen Lorenzo Harrison and LaDerrien Wilson this summer to be paired with fellow freshman Jake Funk, an early enrollee, Brown, and sophomore Ty Johnson, who showed flashes during his freshman campaign.
The running back position will be relied upon heavily in the offense under new coordinator Walt Bell, who had four players rush for at least 400 yards under his watch at Arkansas State last season.
