2011 Clemson verbal commit Jerome Maybank is doing everything he can to help his 3-6 Waccamaw Warriors team.
“I think I have played pretty good seeing that I go both ways. I play every offensive play and I get a few breaks on defense but I am in most of the game,” said Maybank.
Jerome was recruited by Clemson to play defensive tackle, but what does he like to play better?
“I like playing defense better, it is more exciting, more of a rush,” replied Maybank.
The 6’5” 330 lbs defensive tackle (who runs a 5.4 in the 40), believes that Clemson is looking really good coming of their last win.
“I think the defense has really come around and that Clemson should be a major threat in the ACC,” said Maybank.
The one player that Jerome likes to model his game after is Clemson’s own senior DT Jarvis Jenkins. Hopefully Jerome can come in and play like Jenkins who has had a great year for the Tigers.
Jerome could not be in Death Valley for the big win against Georgia Tech because he was taking the ACTs. He considered entering Clemson early, but decided it would be too much of a work load for him to graduate early.
When the standout lineman is not on the football field he says he enjoys reading and hanging out with friends.
