Georgia Tech, App State in mix for Maxwell

While he had to play out of position at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas because of the presence of highly-touted quarterbacks Jacob Park and Mason Rudolph on the roster, Cordova (S.C.) Edisto prospect Tyrell Maxwell still plans on playing quarterback at the next level. The question is, where will that be?
Maxwell has offers from the likes of Georgia Tech and Missouri, but needs to do some work in the classroom down the stretch in order to make the cut.
"Georgia Tech likes me but they want me to keep working in the classroom and get my grades up," Maxwell said. "Their offense is pretty nice and it fits my style of play well."
As far as the Tigers, Maxwell said he's still in contact with the coaches, but he's not sure where the relationship stands.
"They're still showing interest," he said. "It's a big SEC school and one I'm really interested in."
He also holds an offer from Appalachian State and said he's hoping to get on campus for an official visit next month.
"[Wide receivers] Coach [Justin] Stepp is recruiting me and I've grown a great bond with him," Maxwell said. "I like the offense they run, how they mix up the pass and the run and how they call the plays. I like the campus a lot. I went up there in August and really enjoyed it."
While Maxwell waits for his situation to sort itself over the next month, he said he'll wait as long as possible before making a decision.
"I'll announce on National Signing Day," he said.
