Prior to the start of summer conditioning workouts, Maryland’s depth along the offensive line has suffered a sizable blow as the Terps announced Friday that Moise Larose has been suspended for one year for violating the university’s code of conduct.
In a statement, the tackle apologized for whatever it was that led to the lengthy suspension.
“I want to apologize to all of those who have supported me during my time at the University of Maryland,” Larose said. “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.”
While the reason or reasons behind the punitive measure wasn’t divulged, Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun tweeted that the “[o]nly year-long suspension in that code of conduct involves failed drug tests.”
Larose, a three-star member of the Terps 2013 recruiting class, played in four games as a true freshman, starting one of those contests. While listed as a backup exiting spring practice, Larose was expected to compete for a starting job in summer camp.
