Meeting the Terps Offense: #9 Josh Cary

College Park, MD. - TSR gets you acclimated with the 2012 Terps, first looking at the offense.

Player: Josh Cary

Hometown: Chenango Forks, N.Y.

Class: Junior

Height & Weight: 6-foot-5, 300 pounds

Projected Position on Depth Chart: Starting guard

The rundown: Cary played in all 12 games last season, starting nine of them at right guard. The offensive line with Cary helped the Maryland Terrapins offense rank third in the ACC in rushing with 169.3 yards per game and fourth in fewest sacks allowed with 1.4 sacks allowed per game. Cary was also part of the offensive line that did not give up a sack in back-to-back games to start off the season against Miami and West Virginia. Cary played a big role in helping the Terrapins rush for a season-high 291 yards against Clemson and 189 yards against West Virginia, with former running back Davin Meggett rushing for a career-high 113 yards.

Expectations for 2012: Cary is listed on the preseason depth chart as one of the potential starting right guards with De'Onte Arnett, however, Cary's experience as a starter should help make a case for the starting role on an offensive line that will look a lot different from 2011. At 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, Cary has good size and strength and sets up his blocks well. His experience at right guard coupled with his strength and size will be needed on a new offensive line that will be missing both of last season's starting tackles in Max Garcia and R.J. Dill.
