High School Highlights:

How'd he get to College Park?

Larose was one of a handful of under-the-radar prospects who really came into their own during their senior campaigns, and he's got quite an impressive frame for Maryland to build on over the next few years. Born in Haiti, he was a first team All-Met selection by the Post after his senior year, and was second team All-Met by the Sun on both the offensive and defensive lines. He also was named all-county, played for Team Baltimore in the Crab Bowl, and played basketball and track.

Larose received offers from Navy, Rutgers, Boston College, Duke, East Carolina and a handful of FCS power programs. Originally a Rutgers commit in May of 2012, he changed his commitment in November of that year.

It's pronounced "Mo-eece", by the way.

Nickname:

"The Rose"

Career Highlight:

Committing to Maryland.

Dream Season:

Beating out Jake Wheeler and Michael Dunn to become the back-up right tackle.

2013 Prospectus:

Starting at right tackle this year is senior Nick Klemm, and it's hard to imagine that will change. Behind him is walk-on Michael Dunn, Jake Wheeler, and Larose, none of whom have the experience to challenge Klemm seriously. However, the role of first right tackle off the bench is very much up in the air, as Dunn is a walk-on, Wheeler hasn't exactly impressed in his Maryland career so far, and Larose is a talented newcomer hungry to prove himself.

Things get a bit more complicated next year, as Derwin Gray is expected to come in and take the starting job from Day One. If, for whatever reason, that doesn't happen, Klemm's back-up will be the favorite to start. Larose could easily grab that position away from Dunn and Wheeler, and that will be certainly one of the more important behind-the-scenes position battles to watch.

Up Next:

Our next player is from a state that has been a surprising pipeline of sorts for Maryland, and went to the same high school as a possible Terrapin breakout star.

Standings:

Maryland1206 lessens the gap.
