We wanted to celebrate a milestone in the lives of these athletes, and it kind of took on a life all its own, said Mike Maybin, the father of future Nittany Lion defensive end Aaron Maybin. The kids all decided that they wanted to support each other in their decisions and the end result is what we're going to see tomorrow.
The event will be held at the Holiday Inn Baltimore-West just off Interstate 695. It will include introductions of the players, the letter signings, a Q-and-A session and then a photograph session.
The site was chosen for its central location in regard to Penn State's Class of 2006. Seven members of the class hail from Maryland -- Maybin, Navorro Bowman, Bani Gbadyu, Antonio Logan-El, Phillip Taylor, A.J. Wallace and J.B. Walton. Of that group, only Bowman, who enrolled at Penn State a semester early, can't make it Wednesday.
FightOnState.com will offer full coverage of the event Wednesday.
