Well, this is interesting. Hold off on that whole Project Mayhem going pro thing.
But despite a recent report on fightonstate.com that Maybin informed Joe Paterno Thursday night that he will enter the 2009 NFL Draft, Maybin has remained publicly silent about his future. At last week's Rose Bowl, Maybin refused to discuss his future plans and on Friday night, Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley said he was not aware of the redshirt-sophomore's plans.
If you read the article it has Tom Bradley, Lavar Arrington, and Jerome Hayes all denying that Aaron Maybin has made up his mind about going pro. If you want my opinion (well, even if you don't want my opinion you're going to get it...it is my blog ya know), this is just Maybin's friends not wanting to steal his thunder so he can make a public announcement. He's still gone. In fact Lavar Arrington...God bless you, Lavar Arrington...has this definitive statement on the subject.
"Even if I did know, I don't know," Arrington said. "Aaron is the president and CEO of his corporation. Any announcements or any type of anything - him coming back or leaving, that's on him."
I don't know anything, but if I did, I still don't know anything. I guess that settles that.
