How'd he get to College Park?
Dulaney was a star left tackle in high school, who grabbed a handful of accolades after leading McEachern to an 8-3 record and a playoff appearance after his senior year. Ready for the list?

For his efforts, Dulaney received offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, FIU, Marshall, South Alabama, Troy, Western Kentucky, and, of course, Maryland. He received his Terrapin offer June 3, 2012, and committed five days later.
Getting offered by Maryland.
Playing well enough to make the Terps consider moving Mike Madaras to the right tackle shuffle.
Dulaney is big like a tackle (at least weight-wise), but can move as well as a guard (which, with Maryland's guard depth issues, could help significantly), and it's a guarantee that he has a real place on Maryland's offensive line future.
Currently listed as the third-string left tackle, Dulaney is behind Ryan Doyle and starter Mike Madaras. Madaras, a former four-star prospect, is the hopeful future of Maryland's offensive line, and he played last year at the other tackle position. With Nick Klemm and a whole lot of uncertainty there now, it certainly wouldn't surprise to see Madaras or Dulaney move over to that slot, allowing both to start - it's not a stretch to say they're the two most talented tackles on the team.
That being said, Klemm is one of just two seniors on the line, so Randy Edsall and Tom Brattan might want to keep him up there. For years to come, however, it's something to look out for.
