Bolling, Lowe suspended
Wake Forest's football program has been hit hard this season so far with a slew of injuries, as well as several suspensions of key players.
Things got even worse on that front this week, as the Demon Deacons announced two more suspensions on Saturday for a pair of guys who have run afoul of the program's code of conduct.
Head coach Jim Grobe has announced that junior offensive tackle Devin Bolling and junior safety Duran Lowe have both been indefinitely suspended from the Wake Forest program for a violation of team rules.
Specifically, according to a report in the Winston-Salem Journal, both players were arrested this past Tuesday (October 9), with Lowe being charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and Bolling charged with possession.
This news comes on the heels of six Demon Deacons being suspended for last weekend's loss at Maryland---a situation that also appears to be marijuana-related.
Both Bolling and Lowe were looking for breakthrough seasons this fall after serving as backups for practically all of their careers prior to this season.
Lowe played in all 25 of Wake Forest's games over the 2010 and 2011 seasons, serving as a backup in the secondary, while Bolling had only played in two games prior to this season during his redshirt freshman season of 2010. He didn't play at all in 2011 as he struggled behind more experienced players and with a midseason bout of mononucleosis.
Bolling came into this season with a chance to solidify a starting job along Wake's offensive line for his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility, but with this weekend's release from Coach Grobe, the question now is whether he'll ever play again for the Demon Deacs.
Deacons Illustrated will continue to closely monitor this ongoing situation and will alert our readers of any new developments in the coming days.
