Maryland senior defensive lineman Mosiah Nasili-Kite has entered the transfer portal, according to multiple reports Sunday. He has one year of eligibility remaining.
Nasili-Kite traveled with the team to the Duke’s Mayo Bowl on Dec. 30, but did not play.
After transferring to Maryland from Independence Community College (Independence, Kansas), Nasili-Kite put together a productive three years with the Terps, earning an All-Big Ten honorable mention in 2020 and finishing second on the team in tackles for loss in 2021. In his 2022 senior season, he played in 12 games, registering 26 total tackles, 2.5 for a loss.
With Nasili-Kite and linebacker Ahmad McCullough in the transfer portal and Durell Nchami, Ami Finau and Greg China-Rose all either out of eligibility, declared for the NFL draft or both, Maryland’s front seven will have some new faces next season.
In addition to key returners like linebackers Jaishawn Barham and Ruben Hyppolite II, the Terps boosted their front seven by adding transfer defensive end Donnell Brown and a trio of four-star edge rushers: Neeo Avery, Dylan Gooden and Rico Walker, although Walker is expected to start as a tight end to help replace CJ Dippre, who transferred to Alabama.
