Profiles In Terpage - A Countdown To The Football Season: Pete White

A recurring series where we will profile every player on Maryland's roster, counting down to kick-off against William & Mary on September 1. Thanks to OBNUG for the idea.


Today we profile a player who was injured during spring camp but is expected to start this fall.

How'd He Get to College Park?

A few days ago, when talking about De'Onte Arnett, we talked about the relative struggles of James Franklin's nine four-star recruits. Pete White is one of those guys, but is pretty inarguably the most successful of the group. He played in all twelve games last year - besides Devonte Campbell, he was the only one of the bunch to do so - and he started in six of them.

White was a big-time recruit coming out of St. John's, receiving offers from Florida, Miami, Oregon and Virginia Tech, among others. He was named second team All-Met as a junior, first team as a senior, was a three time first team all-conference selection, and played in the 2009 Under Armour All-America game.

After redshirting in his first year on campus, White played in eight games in 2010, subbing in at left and right guard before getting a start on the right side against North Carolina State in the season finale. Last season, he played in every game, starting half of them.

Nickname:

"Big Pete" White. When in doubt for a lineman's nickname, just add "Big" to their first name.

Career Highlight:

Starting six games last year.

Career Lowlight:

Missing spring practice due to injury.

Dream Season:

White wins of the two starting guard positions, holding it down for the next two years.

Nightmare Season:

Through injuries or just a lack of performance, White is relegated to a bench role.

2012 Prospectus:

Because of an injury, Pete White missed spring practice and is not listed on the current depth chart. The two starters listed at guard are Josh Cary and De'Onte Arnett, but it's highly unlikely that's the combination come fall.

In fact, it's entirely possible neither of them are the starters. We talked about it yesterday with Sal Conaboy, but if the Terps decide to move Bennett Fulper back to guard, Maryland could have a Fulper/White combination, a solid combination of experience and talent. Cary has to be considered the favorite to get one of the two spots, considering he was a starter throughout last year, but we've seen stranger things happen.

Either way, Pete White will see a good amount of playing time this year. He's huge, he's talented, and he played well last year in an expanded role. If Fulper moves, White's chances of starting dwindle a little bit. If Fulper stays, it's a safe bet that he'll be starting with Cary.

Up Next:

Our next player was an honorable mention all-county selection after his senior year of high school - even though his team went winless that year.

Maryland1206 extends his lead.
