Following his arrest for marijuana possession, a felony charge to boot, LB Gabe Terry is no longer a part of the Miami Hurricanes’ football team.
First reported by Jorge Milian, he released the following tweet:
Al Golden: Gabe Terry's days are done as a Miami Hurricane. My blog: http://t.co/Trxpzm6WjN

Hurricanes’ head football coach Al Golden told Milian:
We’ve separated and moved on in another direction now.”
On how he determined Terry’s punishment, Golden went on to tell Milian:
“…it certainly has to do with the resume of the young man in terms of whether there were any incidents in terms of his career here and whether he’s done all of the things we’ve asked him to do…“
Since his arrival in Coral Gables less than a year ago, the Palm Beach Central linebacker found himself suspended more than once. Terry missed Miami’s 2012 game against Virginia and did not play in the ‘Canes final game of the season against USF. Golden would never elaborate on why Terry was suspended.
The final incident was enough to get him kicked off of the team.
On Apr. 19 Terry was arrested with felony possession of marijuana and resisting arrest without violence.
Terry was listed as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com and spent much of his freshman UM career playing on special teams. He was named ACC Specialist of the Week after blocking a punt against Virginia Tech on Nov. 5. Aside from being a standout football player, Terry was listed as being one of the top wrestlers in the nation.
