'I Like How They Use The Defensive Ends'

Maryland is stacked this year, with eight players receiving four or more stars. There are seven prospects who have received three stars, of those seven there are a few who could jump up considerably in the rankings before all is said and done. One of the prospects with the greatest upside is Aaron Maybin.

Ellicott City (Md.) Mount Hebron defensive end Aaron Maybin (6-3, 220, 4.67) has garnered 19 scholarship offers thus far.

"I now have offers from Penn State, Maryland, Virginia, Auburn, North Carolina State, Illinois, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Michigan State, Georgia, LSU, Tennessee, Florida, Michigan, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Miami, and Virginia Tech and Syracuse," Maybin said. "I have my list down to about 13 of those schools right now, hopefully by the first game I'll have it narrowed down to where I'll take my visits.

Maybin is not ready to name names just yet, but he has taken a handful of unofficial visits to Michigan, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Virginia, and NC State.

Michigan: "I liked their stadium and their coaches were really nice. They seem to communicate well and support their players."

Penn State: "It's a great University, there's nothing I can say bad about them. They have great coaches who develop their players athletically and academically."

Virginia Tech:"It's a great family atmosphere. The players train hard and play hard. They have a very outgoing staff that really nurtures their players.

Virginia: "I have a good repoire with the staff, they're great guys. Coach [Al] Groh is humble and real personable; he's real easy to talk to. The coaches are very goal oriented, and the players are driven to win a national championship.

NC State: "They have really taken to me. I like the way they develop defensive linemen. I like how they use the defensive ends, they really play with intensity.

Maybin did attend one camp at Maryland, although he wasn't planning on participating he did anyway.

"I was there visiting, Antonio Logan-El and Marvin Austin were there. We all started jawing and talking smack so we decided to strap it up," Maybin said. "I ran a 4.5 and had a 41" vertical. I took home camp "MVP" honors."

As a junior, Maybin recorded 79 tackles including 26 for a loss and nine sacks. He also forced two and recovered three fumbles.
