Sophomore Dominique Herald is suspended for the Aug. 30 season opener against Delaware for a violation of team rules. Friedgen said Herald is expected to move back to safety from linebacker.

* Freshman Kenny Tate was moved from wide receiver to safety. That’s a wild first day on the job. Friedgen said Tate will have the option to move back after this season, but the fact is Maryland has a glut of receivers. He might beat all of his fellow freshmen wideouts onto the field.


* Offensive lineman Evan Eastburn transferred out of the program. Defensive tackle Dean Muhtadi was placed on scholarship earlier in the summer. If another scholarship opens up at some juncture, chances are it goes to Olugbemi Otulaja.

* Offensive lineman Tyler Bowen (foot), defensive lineman Joe Vellano (shoulder) and wide receiver Kevin Dorsey (foot) are not in camp but will report when school begins. Friedgen said Dorsey was likely to undergo an operation.
