A former Hurricane who transferred amid NCAA trouble will be suspended at his new school.

Marshall announced Monday that linebacker Juwon Young, who left UM last August, will sit the first four games of this year.

Young, now a redshirt junior, was one of several players investigated by UM last year for possible dealings with a South Beach luxury rental car agency and other impermissible conduct. Defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammd and linebacker Jermaine Grace were dismissed from the program last August. Neither played in 2016, but both are now with NFL teams. Muhammad was a sixth-round pick of the New Orleans Saints. Grace signed with the Atlanta Falcons.

Young was suspended indefinitely by UM last June after the school learned through a former girlfriend that he and other players may have used cars from South Beach Exotic Rentals in exchange for future restitution. Young’s suspension, sources involved with the decision told The Post at the time, came partly because he was not forthcoming with UM’s compliance department.

Marshall is also where former UM wide receiver Tyre Brady landed after transferring after the 2015 season. Like Young, Brady is eligible to play this fall. The Homestead-South Dade High product was a star in the Thundering Herd’s spring game.
