Maryland OL gets an offer

Maryland offensive tackle Moise Larose saw his offer list double over the weekend when Duke and Rutgers extended verbals. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Larose already held offers from East Carolina and Boston College.

Meade Senior High (Fort Meade, Md.) offensive lineman Moise Larose saw his offer list double over the weekend when Rutgers and Duke extended offers.

The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Larose already held offers from East Carolina and Boston College.

"The thing that makes him is a very interesting prospect with so much potential is the fact that he's long and athletic," Meade High coach Richard Holzer said. "He is overly athletic for an offensive lineman. His feet and his hips are like that of a linebacker."

Even at his current weight, Larose has plenty of room for growth. He has already shown his strength in the weight room, which is an aspect he enjoys.

"He can legitimately by the end of college go up to 320 (pounds)," Holzer said. "He's already dead-lifting in the high 500s, and he's really had no weight training experience. He's naturally strong and he doesn't need much convincing to get in the weight room, and that's a good thing."

Each of the schools to offer like Larose as an offensive tackle, although he does have the ability to move inside and play guard.

"I think he's a left tackle in college," Holzer said. "I don't say that about many kids."

Larose, who carries a 4.0 grade point average, is looking to make a trip to Duke, but he already knows about Rutgers.

He was in New Jersey in June to take part in the Big Man Academy, and performed for then offensive line coach Kyle Flood, who is now the head coach.

"I really liked it," Larose told Scout.com earlier this month. "I really wanted to be there. They want me, from what they're telling me. They have a new coaching staff and a new offensive line coach (Damian Wroblewski) from Delaware, and I met him before, so that kind of ties in hand-in-hand.

"I saw the history of Rutgers and what they're all about. ‘It's R Way' is their motto, and I was just impressed with what they had to offer."
