Mahon Recaps Rutgers Unofficial Visit

Randolph (N.J.) offensive lineman Brendan Mahon visited Rutgers Friday for another chance to meet with head coach Kyle Flood and his staff. Mahon discussed spending time with current Rutgers players and impressions of his latest visit to Piscataway.

In summing up a Friday visit to Rutgers, Randolph (N.J.) offensive lineman Brendan Mahon said that things went "great."

On the Rutgers radar since before Kyle Flood took over as head coach, Mahon's interest in the program remains strong.

"It's always great to go see Coach Flood," Mahon said. "He's a great guy. I'm so happy he's the head coach. It was great to get to know more about [offensive line coach Damian Wroblewski]. I think this trip definitely helped me get to know him and see his style and his coaching style."

Wroblewski joined the Rutgers staff from Delaware to replace Flood as the offensive line coach. Mahon and the new staff have a strong relationship, he said.

"He's a great guy," Mahon said. "Him and Coach Flood have a lot of similarities and then the differences that are there are ones that are good that can benefit the players."

Mahon spent much of Friday with the team itself and enjoyed getting to know guard Betim Bujari and incoming freshman Chris Muller.

"It was good to get to know a bunch of the players because I think that's a big deal when I make my decision and see their core values and how they operate," he said.

Mahon said he has no plans for making a commitment to any school, but is starting to hone in on the most important factors in his recruitment.

"I've been thinking about it," he said. "I'm looking to kind of stay closer to home, but I'm going to go out and look further away too. I'm going to play it by ear. If I love a school that's far away, then I'll go to school far away."

Mahon plans to take more visits this spring, but does not have any set.

"Places like Penn State are definitely close enough," Mahon said. "Being within four or five hours of home is ideal, but if I fall in love with Miami, then I fall in love with Miami."

Mahon recently picked up a verbal offer from Penn State and said he has an interest in the Nittany Lions.

"It's a great school, a great program," he said. "The coaching staff is great."
