The Maryland Terrapins will be beginning a new venture in 2014 as a member of the Big Ten Conference, but they’ll apparently doing so without a young man that could have been a key piece of their offensive line as projected starting tackle Moise Larose has been suspended for the entire season for violation the student-athlete code of conduct, according to CBS Sports.
In a statement released through the school, Larose expressed his apologies to everyone involved with the Maryland football program.
“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 was a three-star prospect coming out of high school in the 2013 class and would have been entering his sophomore season for Randy Edsall and the Terps had this incident not occurred. He was slated to compete for playing time with Ryan Doyle, Damian Prince and Derwin Gray for two spots that are open on the Maryland offensive line.
With Larose now out of the picture, the three remaining tackles that are left will vie for those two open slots.
