Travis Hawkins to Maryland
I spoke with Travis Hawkins last night, and got him to tell me it was down to Penn State, Oregon, and Maryland. Further looks say it was really down to Oregon and Maryland. He chose to stay home. If you read my interview, he said his Mom really wanted him to stay home, and he listened. He also said he wants Jason Ankrah to go where he does, so keep an eye on him as well. In my opinion, I think the distance was the ultimate factor. He really seems to be attached to his family and community, and in the end, that might have been the deciding factor. Although he said he wanted to set up a visit to Penn State, it never happened. I'm still not sure if Jason Ankrah will end up there either, because I think it would've already happened. With his teammate now heading to Maryland, it could be a possibility that they land him. Either way, I think Michigan is out of the picture for him as well. With the addition of the "book end" defensive ends we already have, I'm not too worried. If we've all learned anything through out this, it's that anything can happen. We'll find out more as the day goes on, and I will keep you updated.
