How'd he get to College Park?

Stephen Grommer committed to Maryland after watching the Terps destroy Morgan State two years ago, citing the atmosphere on campus. He was a star lineman at Spartanburg, where he played right tackle during his senior year and held his own against Jadeveon Clowney.

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.

In his first season on campus, Grommer redshirted, and he switched from offensive guard to center the next spring. Last year, he did not play in any games, and was named scout team offensive player of the week leading up to the Virginia game.

Nickname:

"Wallace and" Grommer

Career Highlight:

Scout team player of the week.

Dream Season:

Moves to right guard, immediately becomes the back-up.

2013 Prospectus:

Grommer is third on the depth chart at center, behind starter Sal Conaboy and fellow sophomore Evan Mulrooney. Both Mulrooney and Grommer were converted to the position, and center is currently Maryland's offensive line position with the most depth.

As a result, it wouldn't be a surprise to see either Mulrooney or Grommer switch positions either this year or next, and as Mulrooney is higher up on the depth chart, that may fall to Grommer. Right guard is the position of greatest need, as after sophomore Andrew Zeller the Terps have two walk-ons. It may not be a permanent change, but if they need a guard to spell Zeller beyond Silvano Altamirano (the back-up at left guard), Grommer may be the one they call on.

Up Next:

Our next player was known more for his basketball exploits than football in high school.
