How'd He Get to College Park?

At Naples, Foreman was a star at safety and punter, starting for three years at the varsity level. He was offered by Kansas and West Virginia, in addition to Maryland and some low-major schools. Like essentially every Floridian defender on Maryland's team, he came to College Park in large part because of Don Brown.

Here, more sad Don Brown reaction quotes:

"(Brown is the one who was really recruiting me since I was a sophomore," said Foreman, a 6-foot-2 safety. "That's what made my decision. If he left, I wouldn't go there."

Just like Dorleant, Undray Clark, and others from the Sunshine State, he's still around, however. Foreman redshirted last year, earning special teams scout team player of the week once, and switched from safety to linebacker before spring practice. He has also been suspended for the 2012 season for a violation of the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct.

Nickname:

Lukas "George" Foreman. Two-for-one.

Career Highlight:

Starting for three years at Naples.

Career Lowlight:

The suspension.

Dream Season:

N/A, he's suspended.

Nightmare Season:

We're already there.

2012 Prospectus:

Lukas Foreman is listed on Maryland's depth chart as the back-up SAM linebacker, behind Alex Twine and in front of Yannick Cudjoe-Virgil. Kenny Tate will be coming back from injury, Stefan Houston and Avery Thompson will be coming in this fall, Kujo will be unavailable due to NCAA transfer rules, and Foreman is suspended, so that position is going to look drastically different come fall.

If Foreman had not been suspended, he would have seen playing time as a reserve outside linebacker and probably as a key contributor on special teams, given his success with the unit in practices last year. As it stands, however, he's going to have to wait for next year. Luckily for him, Kenny Tate will have graduated by that time, meaning that SAM will most likely have a new starter. Unluckily for him, that new starter will probably be someone who plays there this year - Twine is the best guess, although Houston and Thompson also have an outside shot.

Up Next:

Our next player is a converted defensive lineman from Florida.
