Ellicott City (Md.) Mount Hebron defensive end Aaron Maybin was between a visit to Miami and a trip to Florida when we caught up with him to get his take on his recent unofficial visit to Penn State. Maybin is getting as many unofficial visits in as he can before the start of his senior season.
My trip to Penn State went as good as it possibly could, Maybin said. I met with a lot of the people who would be very influential in my academic and athletic career at Penn State. Id say overall I had a real good visit.
Maybin was especially excited that once he was away from the watchful eye of the Penn State coaching staff, he had the opportunity to ask several questions to a few current players.
We were hanging out with the players most of the time when we werent with the staff, he said. It was nice to here a players perspective, but they mostly reiterated everything the coaches said.
As Logan-El mentioned earlier in the week, he and Maybin may investigate the possibility of attending the same school.
Were looking at a lot of the same schools, but I cant get into exactly which ones right now, he said. I will say this Im setting up an official visit to Penn State. I havent set a date yet, but it will happen.
This week Maybin is taking a Florida tour to Miami, Florida and Florida State.
Miami went really well, he said. We watched practice, but it got cut short because of thunder. I spoke with the coaches, including Coach Coker. I had a chance to check out the academics. Overall it was a good visit.
