DT Jerome Maybank Profile
Late last month, Waccamaw High School (Pawley's Island) defensive tackle Jerome Maybank told CUTigers that Clemson remained his leader and had been so for quite some time.
"I was trying to make all the schools happy, look at. I knew where I was originally going. I knew in my heart I just wanted to go ahead and commit," he said.
Maybank selected Clemson over South Carolina, North Carolina and West Virginia.
"I talked about it last week with my family, but I made it official this afternoon," he said.
He called his recruiter: offensive tackles/tight ends coach Danny Pearman to let him in on the news. Maybank has also spoken with head coach Dabo Swinney and defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks.
"They were saying that I made their day and they're all excited and that they wanted to hear that," Maybank said. "They're looking forward to coaching me and watching me grow up. They're ready for me to get into the program and start playing."
Fellow 2011 class members Shaq Anthony and DeShaun Williams are close with Maybank.
"I'm in touch with them pretty often," Maybank said.
Current Tiger Brandon Maye has provided him with advice throughout the process.
"I'm good friends with him. He's told me what Clemson is all about. He just told me to pray on it and chose which school that I want to go to," Maybank said.
As far as his commitment goes, Maybank is solid. He has no plans to look at other schools, nor does he plan to make any visits, other than to Tigertown.
"I'm locked in," he said.
Maybank said he plans to make his next visit to Clemson for camp this summer.
Scout.com classified him as a three-star offensive tackle and the No. 54 ranked prospect for the position in the class of 2011. He will play defensive tackle at Clemson.
