How'd He Get to College Park?

Stephen Grommer committed to Maryland after watching the Terps destroy Morgan State three years ago, citing the atmosphere on campus as his reason to make the pledge. He was a star lineman at Spartanburg, where he played right tackle during his senior year.

Grommer was named to all-area and all-region Academic teams in high school, received interest from Harvard, and had a 3.9 GPA in high school. He also received offers from East Carolina and NC State.

Profiling the entire team

After redshirting his first year, Grommer has spent two seasons on the scout team. He earned scout team player of the week honors once during his freshman campaign, but has not yet seen game action. He switched to center before his sophomore year.

Nickname:

"Ephen Stephen"

Career Highlight:

Scout team player of the week before the Virginia game in 2012.

Dream Season:

Sees some playing time backing up Sal Conaboy, and plays well enough to put his name into contention for the starting job next year.

2014 Prospectus:

Grommer has a good shot at playing this year, after two years off the field. Sal Conaboy is entrenched at center, but former No. 2 Evan Mulrooney is currently in a battle with Silvano Altamirano for a starting guard spot. If Mulrooney wins that battle (which I think he will), Grommer stays as the primary reserve center. He'll spell Conaboy and likely spend a significant amount of time on special teams.

Up Next:

The school our next player attended before Maryland also claims two members of the 1996 Rams organization as notable alumni.

Standings:

KHemer gets number two.
