When Maryland enters the Big Ten this summer it will do so without one of the players scheduled to compete for a starting job on its offensive line.
Maryland announced Friday that offensive tackle Moise Larose has been suspended for one year for violating the school's student-athlete code of conduct.
"I want to apologize to all of those who have supported me during my time at the University of Maryland," said Larose in a statement released through the school. "I know I disappointed you with my poor decisions. I will learn from it and get better from this unfortunate situation that I brought onto myself."
Larose would have been a sophomore in 2014, and he had been competing with Ryan Doyle, Damian Prince and Derwin Gray for the two starting spots at tackle. His suspension leaves the Terps a bit thin at the area, as both Prince and Gray are incoming freshmen. While both were highly touted, their lack of experience at the college level could lead to problems for the Terps in their first Big Ten season.
