High school highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Mulrooney was the starting left tackle at Delaware powerhouse Salesianum, helping lead the team to a state championship his junior year and an appearance in the semifinals his senior season. He ranked as the second best offensive lineman prospect in Delaware in 2011, behind Trip Thurman (who signed with Florida and started 10 games for the Gators at left guard last season).

Mulrooney committed to Maryland during the 2010 spring game, when then-offensive line coach Tom Brattan showed him the Terrapins' wish list at center -- with Mulrooney's name alone. NC State pursued him pretty hard once the Terrapins went through the transition from Ralph Friedgen to Randy Edsall, but the lineman stayed strong in his commitment.

Mulrooney redshirted his first season on campus, and then started five games at center in 2012. He backed up Sal Conaboy at center during the 2013 season, moving to guard before the 2014 year but missing nearly the entire season due to a viral infection.

Career Highlight:

Starting five games in 2012.

Dream Season:

Mulrooney wins a starting guard spot, partnering with Andrew Zeller and Brendan Moore to make a solid interior line for the Terps.

2015 Prospectus:

Mulrooney seems to have a very good shot of finally locking down a starting spot heading into his redshirt senior year, with a guard spot and the center job potentially available. He has shown he can play either position in College Park, and he'll be competing with Ryan Doyle, Brendan Moore and potentially Damian Prince for playing time.

Up Next:

Our next player was the first Tampa-area player successfully landed by Maryland's new staff.
