Maryland offensive lineman Moise Larose has been suspended for one year for violating the university 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,” Larose said in a statement issued by the athletic department. “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 played in four games as a freshman last season and made his first career start at left tackle against Syracuse.
Meanwhile, Maryland senior offensive lineman Sal Conaboy has been named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List.
The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the Most Outstanding Center in NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).
Conaboy joins Melvin Fowler (2001), Kyle Schmit (2003, 2004) and Edwin Williams (2008) as Maryland players who have been named to the watch list.
Last season, Conaboy started all 13 games at center for the Terrapins and served as the offensive line’s representative on the team’s leadership council. An All-Academic ACC selection as a junior, Conaboy anchored a unit that helped Maryland rush for over 100 yards in each of their first four games including a 312-yard performance against Old Dominion.
Conaboy, a Pennsylvania native, also helped Maryland’s offense pass for 3,231 yards last season, marking the first time a Terrapin team eclipsed the 3,000-yard plateau since 1994.
