Darien (Ill.) Hinsdale South linebacker prospect Matt Mayberry (6-foot-2, 192 pounds) added his second scholarship offer last last week, when the Indiana Hoosiers offered Mayberry. Indiana is also Mayberry's first Big Ten scholarship offer so far this summer.
"I had my team camp all last week so I didn't get out to any college camps," Mayberry said. "I just found out from an email on Friday that the Indiana coaches had a recruiting meeting and that they are offering me a scholarship."
Mayberry, who took part in the University of Illinois Passing 7 on 7 tournament on Saturday, talked about drawing his latest offer from the Hoosiers.
"Indiana just wrapped up it's one-day camps and I was told in the email that Indiana was really impressed with my one-day camp and that they decided that they were going to offer me a scholarship. They also said that the paperwork will be in the mail on Monday. Indiana is recruiting me as an outside linebacker."
Mayberry came away with a very solid impression of the Hoosiers after his recent camp visit.
"Indiana plays in the Big Ten conference and that's important to me. I've been to Indiana twice and I really like the facilities and the campus. I also really got a long well with the coaches at Indiana and that is also a big plus. I like Indiana a lot and I'll definitely give them some serious consideration, My family and I are excited about getting an offer from the Hoosiers."
Mayberry also has no preference when it comes to his college position.
"It seems like most schools are recruiting me as either a strong safety or as an outside linebacker. I really have no preference at all, and I just want to play at the next level. I'll play whatever position the coaches feel I came handle. I'm up for anything."
Mayberry will also hit one more college camp before focusing in on his team and his senior season.
"On June 27th I'm going to camp at Wisconsin. After the Wisconsin camp I'm basically done with the college camps this summer. I have a lot of team responsibilities and I want to just focus on getting ready for my senior season."
