Former Maryland OL Pete White transfers to Temple

Former Maryland offensive lineman Pete White has transferred to Temple, according to Philly.com. Once rated the fifth-best offensive guard nationally and a first-team All-Met in 2008 out of St. John’s, White played in just three games for the Terrapins last season. The team announced his decision to transfer, citing personal reasons, on Feb. 8.

White will enroll in graduate classes and be eligible immediately for Temple, which hosted and lost to Maryland last season. As a redshirt freshman in 2010, White played in eight games; in 2011, he appeared in all 12 games and made six starts.

“He’s a big, strong, athletic kid,” Temple Coach Matt Rhule told Philly.com. “We always believe the battles are won in the trenches.”

For those tracking, White joins defensive lineman Justin Anderson (U-Mass.) and running back Justus Pickett (Tennessee) as Terps who transferred to other Football Bowl Subdivision programs after the 2012 season.

Defensive back Makinton Dorleant left for FCS Northern Iowa and, according to his Instagram biography and Facebook page, quarterback/wide receiver Devin Burns landed at NAIA Langston (Okla.) University, though the school’s athletics Web site doesn’t list him on the roster yet.
