Mauk Ready for Camp Circuit; Decision Near?

Kenton (Ohio) High four-star quarterback Maty Mauk's recruitment continues, with a number of schools interested. Scout.com's 8th-rated quarterback of the 2012 class is getting ready to hit a quartet of campus, and will also visit another school. Come inside IrishEyes.com to get the latest on Mauk's recruitment, and decision timetable.

Kenton (Ohio) High four-star quarterback Maty Mauk has four camps and one campus to visit before the possibility of making a decision on his college future moves to the forefront, and Notre Dame will be one of the campuses he travels to.

Furthermore, Kenton High coach Mike Mauk, also the father of the 6-foot-2, 190-pound Maty, said the Irish continue to recruit his son, and added it is unlikely a decision will come in June.

"He's still undecided, and I don't foresee him making any decision at least for the rest of this month," Mike Mauk said. "I'm not real sure when he's going to decide."

The camp circuit kicks into overdrive this weekend as Mauk will be at Bowling Green.

"Then, we'll be at Notre Dame the following weekend," he said." We're also going to Vanderbilt and Alabama. I know we're going to be out at Missouri (for a visit) at the end of this month. Other than that, I don't foresee anything else. Just what he's already done."

Mauk is Scout.com's 8th-ranked quarterback in the 2012 class after completing 65.5 percent of his passes (372 for 568) for 5.670 yards, 69 touchdowns and 14 interceptions as a junior.

And, according to Mike Mauk, Notre Dame's recruitment of his son is continuing.

"I think it's a great university, a great situation, a great football program," Mike Mauk said. "There's a lot of good things about it.

"They're still communicating with him, and wanting him to make a decision, and make it soon. And I just don't know if he's ready to make it yet. I'm sure that will all play into what happens as well."

One of the reasons Mauk is not ready to decide is he has not spent much time with the recruiting process lately because of his commitment to Kenton High's track team. Much of his time was spent there, and football recruiting took a back seat.

"I want to make sure Maty has a clear mind and weighs all the factors and is 100 percent sure when he makes that decision," Mike Mauk said. "We're not going to be making a commitment some place and …finding out you like someplace better."
