Irish impress 3-star guard
“I thought there was some great competition,” Maynard said. “It was great to see everyone battling it out. I know there was only like 3,000 people there because it wasn’t in their stadium, but it was great being around Notre Dame fans because I know how die-hard they are.”
Maynard spoke briefly with recruiting coordinator Mike Elston and offensive line coach Harry Hiestand after the game.
“It was similar to the conversations that we usually have,” Maynard said. “They want me to get back to campus again soon and they like what I’ve been doing. We didn’t get to talk long because they were focused on the game.”
“There is nothing that doesn’t stand out to me about Notre Dame,” Maynard said. “I like the history and tradition of Notre Dame football, and they have great coaches. I know they have a lot of first-year coaches this year. It’s an amazing place to be, and growing up in Indiana, that makes it even better.”
Maynard has no immediate plans to cut his list.
“I don’t have any favorites right now; I’m just taking everything slowly,” Maynard said. “Sooner or later, I’ll have to do a lot more research on schools, but right now I’m just enjoying the process and seeing what comes next.”
Maynard is a three-star prospect and ranked as the No. 1 offensive guard in Indiana and No. 36 guard overall in the Class of 2016.
