Terrance West’s tweet causes uproar
Tigers running back Terrance West sent out a tweet Saturday night that raised speculation he might leave Towson University.
“It’s been good Towson !!!!!,” West tweeted.
Head Coach Rob Ambrose said he had not heard anything about West leaving Towson before the tweet was posted.
“I heard that there was a tweet,” Ambrose said. “I was told about it very late [Saturday] night, and I said OK. As far as I know, Terrance is checked in and he is in his position meeting.”
The tweet has since been removed.
West stood on the Towson sideline Saturday and did not record one carry against Old Dominion. Toward the end of the game, West had taken his helmet off, put a fitted hat on and stood distant from the offensive huddle.
Last season West only started one game but was still named the Football Championship Subdivision’s top freshman and awarded the Jerry Rice award. In the 18 games West has been active, he has already set Towson’s career rushing touchdown record.
West is Towson’s leading rusher this season with 561 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground. He averages 4.6 yards per carry and close to 77 yards per game this season.
West could not be reached for comment.
