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."
"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.
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."
