Maryland football offensive lineman Mason Lunsford entered the transfer portal, he announced Saturday.
Thank You Terp Nation❗️❤️ pic.twitter.com/2Vx90cKDIn— Mason Lunsford (@lunsford_mason) February 18, 2023
Lunsford, a redshirt senior, started in all but one game over the past two seasons.
The Olney, Maryland native joined the Terps in the 2019 season as a three-star recruit out of Good Counsel High School.
In four seasons with the program, he became a key piece on the offensive line, with a majority of his snaps coming at left guard.
Lunsford’s surprise departure leaves Maryland with just one returning starter on its offensive line — redshirt junior Delmar Glaze.
Head coach Mike Locksley does have reinforcements coming in from the portal, though, with Gottlieb Ayedze (Frostburg State), Marcus Dumervil (LSU) and Corey Bullock (North Carolina Central) all hoping to make an impact.
Lunsford has two years of eligibility remaining.
