Report: Miami QB Kevin Olsen suspended for at least one game
University of Miami quarterback Kevin Olsen will be suspended for at least one game after failing a drug test, reports Adam Kuperstein of NBC 6 South Florida in Miami.
Miami has not confirmed the suspension.
Olsen was rated the No. 12 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2013 by the recruiting website Rivals.com. He sat out last season as a redshirt freshman.
Olsen was also suspended for Miami's bowl game in December for an unspecified violation of team rules.
The Wayne, N.J., native was listed as the top quarterback on Miami's post-spring depth chart but was expected to face competition from Kansas transfer Jake Heaps. Fifth-year senior Ryan Williams suffered a torn ACL in April.
The Hurricanes open the 2014 season Sept. 1 against Louisville.
Miami Hurricanes QB Kevin Olsen will be suspended for at least 1 game this season for failed drug test. No comment from UM at this point.— Adam Kuperstein (@AKuperstein) August 1, 2014
