PA TE/DE Brian Mattes

The highly-touted TE/DE prospect from Plymouth, PA talks about which few teams remain on his list of favorites.

Name: Brian Mattes
Position: TE / DE
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 250 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.7
School: Wyoming Valley West High School, Plymouth, PA

Brian may take a fifth official visit this weekend, if he hasn't made up his mind by then.

"I might be going to Boston College," Brian said.  "I have one set up for Boston College this weekend."

Who are his favorites?

"Right now, it's Notre Dame and Virginia Tech."

Penn State is no longer in the picture.

"They told me today that they're basically filled up.  Coach Anderson called me.

"I was definitely very interested in them, but that's the way things work out, so I'm not too upset about it.  I guess it wasn't meant to be that way.

"I'm a little disappointed, but I'm not going to lose sleep over it.  It was a school close to home that I felt I had to check out.  When I checked it out, I ended up liking it, but I just wasn't ready at that moment to make a decision.

"They were in my house last Thursday and said 'we have a big weekend this weekend and things might happen that could fill it up', but I wanted to go to Notre Dame first, so that's what I did.  I definitely had prior warning to it so I can't point the blame at them."
