Terps freshman forward charged with assault
Question of the Day
Maryland freshman forward Jordan Williams turned himself into police in his hometown Saturday on two charges stemming from an Aug. 8 incident.
Williams is charged with breach of peace and third-degree assault in Torrington, Conn., in a case that includes charges against four other teenagers. A Torrington police official said the records in the case are sealed, which usually occurs when juveniles are charged.
An official said Williams, who was released from custody, is due back in court for arraignment on Monday.
“We are aware of the situation and are monitoring any changes,” Maryland coach Gary Williams said in an athletic department statement. “We will let the judicial system run its course before making any decisions. Any discipline coming from the campus will be in accordance with our Student-Athlete Code of Conduct.”
For nonfelony charges, the code of conduct stipulates athletic director Debbie Yow will determine the playing and practice status upon a recommendation from a head coach (in this case, Gary Williams) both before and after the settlement of all charges.
Jordan Williams, a 6-foot-10, 260-pounder, is expected to factor into the frontcourt this season after the Terrapins used two smaller forwards (6-6 Landon Milbourne and 6-7 Dave Neal) as their starters last season.
Williams averaged 35.7 points as a senior at Torrington High School. Rivals.com ranked him the No. 85 recruit in the nation, while he was ranked 95th by Scout.com.
