Terps attackman Yeatman seeking another year of eligibility

COLLEGE PARK — Maryland attackman Will Yeatman said he would like to return for another lacrosse season.

“I’m still seeing if I can get another year of eligibility for lacrosse,” the senior said this week in an interview.

Yeatman transferred from Notre Dame in January 2009. After leading the Irish in scoring his freshman year, his career was interrupted by an alcohol-related suspension.

“My sophomore year I played in one scrimmage for Notre Dame and I didn’t play the rest of the year," he said.

It is possible that Yeatman could get that season of eligibility back.

Maryland’s athletic department confirmed that it is considering applying to the NCAA for another year of eligibility for Yeatman, who is also a tight end on the football team.

Why should the NCAA grant an extra year of eligibility since the year lost was due to the player's bad behavior?

Quite Tom M. The Terps need him.
