No. 3 Kyle Lauletta

Former Virginia signal caller Michael Strauss has left the program and now redshirt sophomore Kyle Lauletta will get his chance to run the offense. Lauletta does have a little bit of experience as he attempted 21 passes as a true freshman back in 2013. The Downingtown East (Pa.) product completed 16 of those passes for a pair of touchdowns. Lauletta is a very mobile quarterback in the pocket. In watching Lauletta’s high school film, it’s clear that he isn’t opposed to tucking the ball down and running with it. Lauletta’s mobility allows him to buy time in the pocket and find open wide receivers downfield. If Lauletta can extend plays and find his receivers, the Terps defense definitely will be on the field for longer drives.
