How'd He Get to College Park?

Dulaney committed to Maryland in June 2012, just five days after receiving an offer. He dominated at McEachern (also the former home of wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo and recent linebacker addition Jefferson Ashiru), helping lead the team to the state playoffs and earning all-state, all-region and all-county honors while serving as a team captain.

After arriving in College Park prior to the 2013 season, Dulaney suffered a serious left knee injury and missed the entire season. He still had a great attitude about it, tweeting us this photo during the offseason:

Dulaney did not see any playing time in 2014 as a redshirt freshman.

Career Highlight:

The numerous accolades he received at McEachern.

Dream Season:

Dulaney inserts himself into the conversation at guard with his strong play in camp, putting himself in position for a starting job in 2016.

2015 Prospectus:

At the time of his commitment, Dulaney weighed in at 255 pounds. He's since gained around 50, giving him the size needed to make an impact on Maryland's interior line in the Big Ten.

That said, Maryland has a crowded picture this year at offensive guard. Evan Mulrooney will likely start at either center or guard, while Andrew Zeller has all but secured a starting guard spot. If Mulrooney ends up at center, Doyle becomes his probable replacement at guard, but Dulaney could likely challenge him for that spot.

Here's where things turn promising for Dulaney: Zeller, Mulrooney and Doyle are all seniors. The position is all but entirely open in 2016, and a strong 2015 season could set himself up for multiple years as a starting guard in College Park.

Up Next:

Our next player will only spend one season with his brother in College Park.
