Juwon Young no longer on Miami Hurricanes roster
CORAL GABLES — Linebacker Juwon Young, who was suspended indefinitely in June, was not on the roster the Hurricanes released to the media on Thursday, the first day of camp.
Young, who would have been a junior, has not been with the team for several weeks.

Coach Mark Richt is scheduled to address the media late Thursday afternoon.
Young, who played in four games as a freshman in 2014, became UM’s starting middle linebacker last year at midseason, following an injury to senior Raphael Kirby. He finished with 57 tackles (three for loss), one interception and one forced fumble in 10 games.
A new name on the Hurricanes’ roster: kicker Diego Marquez, a redshirt junior. He will compete to be the kickoff specialist and backup kicker behind junior Michael Badgley.
