Maguire on Wolfpack's Radar

West Orange (NJ) Seton Hall Prep quarterback Sean Maguire is getting heavy interest from the Wolfpack and he talks about his thoughts on State and the possibility of camping in Raleigh this summer.

Sean Maguire is one of the top quarterbacks in the Northeast and he has an offer from Florida State, but he's not content yet.

While Maguire is high on the Seminoles and was flattered by the offer from Florida State when it came in, he told Pack Pride that he's still going to hit the camp circuit and find out what other offers he can pick up this summer.

Maguire said he will ultimately play in the ACC, SEC or Big East, and he even went so far as to say that he would like to play football "in the South". It might be tough to read a lot into that, however, as he still plans on camping at UConn.

NC State, Maryland, Alabama and Virginia are some of the other schools showing interest, and he spoke to Pack Pride specifically about NC State in a recent interview.

"Recently NC State got in contact with me and their coach stopped by my school," he recalled. "I'm probably going to have to go down and visit for the one-day camp if I'm going to get an offer. I most definitely want to go. I definitely want to go because it seems like a good opportunity."

As it turns out the 6-3, 195-pound quarterback from West Orange (NJ) Seton Hall Prep has a connection to NC State.

"I've heard it's a really good school. My neighbor played there back in the 80s. He and my best friend are big fans so I always saw them on T.V. coming up," Maguire said.

Maguire admitted that he's enamored with Florida State's prestige and the school's facilities are very impressive. However, he's far from ready to make a decision.

"I like them a lot but I want to get out this summer and visit a lot more schools," he said.

"I'm a pro-style quarterback so I'm looking for a pro-style offense. Hopefully the school will be nice, too, like the academic portion of it. I have to get along with the coaching staff as well. It's just got to be a nice fit."

Last year Maguire passed for more than 1,200 yards with 14 touchdowns and only three interceptions.

He told Pack Pride his best assets are his arm strength and accuracy. This summer he's working on running and extending plays when things break down.
