Mavety Goes In-Depth on Rutgers Visit

Nassau (Garden City, N.Y.) JuCo offensive lineman Chad Mavety spent the day at Rutgers on an unofficial visit. The four-star New Jersey native met with head coach Kyle Flood and received an in-depth look at the program.

Rutgers improved its standing with Nassau Community College (Garden City, N.Y.) offensive lineman Chad Mavety after a Thursday unofficial visit to campus went well.

Mavety, a four-star junior college recruit, spent the day on campus for a behind the scenes look at Rutgers and left with an improved impression of the program.

"I thought it was a good time and it really made me like Rutgers a lot," Mavety said. "I spent a lot of time there. It really was a great time."

A Sparta, N.J., native, Rutgers was a school of early interest for Mavety. Mavety is over double digit offers and said the draw to return to New Jersey is interesting.

"It's not really something I feel like I have to do or anything, but it would definitely be cool," Mavety said. "They've put linemen in the NFL like Anthony Davis, so I like that."

A sit-down with head coach Kyle Flood was the highlight of the day for Mavety.

"I'm impressed with the way the program is moving and how coach Flood is," Mavety said. "He's a family type guy, a father away from home. It's a cool situation.

"Obviously we talked about football stuff, bur really we just talked about life. We talked about family, goals and what I want to see and all of the good stuff that comes along with playing for him."

The 6-foot-6, 320-pounder recently visited Ohio State and has trips set to Alabama and Florida State. Mavety also hopes to visit Syracuse and Tennessee before considering a decision.

"I'm definitely excited about getting to Alabama," Mavety said. "I like Alabama a lot. I like the coaching staff. I want to see it in-person. I want to see what it's about when it comes to players and stuff like that.

Mavety expects to graduate in December and has two years of college eligibility.

"It's too early to have a top five or leader or anything now," Mavety said. "I'm not sure when I'll do that stuff, but I have visits first.
