Maryland sophomore offensive lineman Moise Larose has been suspended for one year after violating the school’s Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, the university announced in a release on Friday afternoon.
“I want to apologize to all of those who have supported me during my time at the University of Maryland,” he said in a statement. “I know I disappointed you with my poor decisions. I will learn from it and get better from this unfortunate situation that I brought onto myself.”
The 6-6, 305-pound native of Odenton, Md., was part of a rotating group of players on the offensive line for the Terrapins last season. He appeared in four games, including starting his first college game on Nov. 9 vs. Syracuse.
The suspension is the second disciplinary incident for Maryland during the Spring 2014 semester.
Linebacker Abner Logan was suspended and later placed on one-year disciplinary probation for an unspecified violation of team rules. Logan has the opportunity to appeal that ruling in the fall.
