ESPN's Bruce Feldman is reporting that the University of Maryland has dismissed one of its top incoming recruits for violating the terms of his financial aid agreement. Melvin Alaeze, a defensive end prospect and one of the more heralded recruits in recent Maryland history, was released from his letter of intent by the university today. Today's Baltimore Sun indicates that, in March, Alaeze was charged with several drug related charges. Alaeze first committed to play for the Terps in 2005, but failed to qualify academically. He spent a prep season at Hargrave Academy and re-committed to Maryland this past February. Alaeze's future is now up in the air and he will, presumably, re-open his recruitment and look to join a school in time to play this season. Virginia Tech and Penn State were the other finalists for Alaeze before he decided to attend Maryland.
