Offensive lineman Larry Mazyck, a junior college transfer who signed his national letter-of-intent last December and remains in the Maryland football team’s future plans, did not enroll at the school for the spring semester and will instead arrive on campus for the summer session.
A request submitted to the Maryland Office of the Registrar was directed to the National Student Clearinghouse, a Web site at which enrollment information can be accessed. There, a search for Mazyck’s current status at Maryland revealed that he has not yet enrolled.
According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, Mazyck had passed all his required courses to graduate from Iowa Western Community College, but a delay in the issuance of his transcript caused him to miss an official transfer deadline for enrollment in the spring semester. At junior colleges like Iowa Western, it is common practice to take certain classes at nearby institutions, like Mazyck did in this instance, but the transfer credit arrived too late from the nearby institution.
“It’s nothing bad,” the individual said. “The kid did what he was supposed to do.”
A Washington native, Mazyck is currently home waiting for the summer session and preseason football to arrive. At Iowa Western, he earned first-team all-American honors and first-team Midwest Football Conference honors. The 6-foot-7, 340-pound tackle, who originally committed to Maryland in 2011 before spending a prep year at Fork Union and another season at New Mexico under current Terps offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, was rated a three-star prospect by 247sports.com and could contribute immediately to Maryland once he arrives on campus.
On Tuesday, Maryland Coach Randy Edsall announced on Twitter that several players would miss spring practice, but did not include Mazyck on that list.
