Maryland football starts its season in 58 days. Until then, we’re profiling each and every player on the roster.
Oseh Saine, defensive end
Weight: 286 pounds
Year: RS Freshman
Jersey: No. 93
How he got to College Park
Saine went to high school in Rhode Island, but grew up in the West African country of Gambia. He settled in Lincoln, R.I. as a sixth-grader, and didn’t start playing football until high school. Saine originally committed to Boston College in the class of 2014, but attended prep school in Massachusetts so he could meet NCAA eligibility standards.
He and BC elected to split ways, and he joined Maryland’s class of 2015, enrolling early. Saine didn’t play in 2015, redshirting his freshman season.
High school highlights
As with many preseason projections, this very much depends on what happens in training camp. Saine could to be in a spot to get playing time behind Jessie Aniebonam and Roman Braglio at defensive end, or maybe he'll get snaps inside at tackle. Right now he’s pretty unknown to those who aren’t part of Maryland’s coaching staff.
What a dream season would look like
Saine becomes one of the team’s prime backups on the defensive line and readies himself to become a prime contributor for Maryland’s front seven in 2017.
