After picking up a few early offers, junior offensive lineman Brendan Mahon of Randolph, N.J. dominated the competition at the U.S. Army All-American Combine. Not surprisingly, recruiting has really begun to heat up for the big lineman, with three recent offers and plenty of new interest.
"I have some new offers," said Mahon. "Florida, USF and N.C. State have offered. It feels great to know that all the hard work I put in is starting to show."
These new offers, along to the previous offers he already had from Rutgers, Boston College and Connecticut, have really opened Mahon's eyes to his recruiting possibilities.
"I would like to expand my search and start seeing what some other programs have to offer as well," said Mahon, who also mentioned that West Virginia, Miami and Penn State have picked up their level of interest.
Mahon had previously stated that Rutgers was his leader, but with the recent coaching change he gave an update on that situation.
"It kind of evens everyone out and puts a lot of other schools on the map," said Mahon. "I am not taking anything away from Rutgers and the staff that's still there."
With so many new schools now involved, Mahon will look to stay busy in the coming months.
"I'm heading to West Virginia, Penn State, UConn and BC," said Mahon. "Then in the spring I am making my way to Miami, Florida, USF, South Carolina, Clemson, N.C. State, UNC, Arkansas, Alabama, Wisconsin, Virginia and Maryland."
Mahon will also look to hit a few camps and combines during the spring and summer.
