PSU recruit Mahon makes big jump in Rivals.com standings

Rivals.com released its final rankings for the 2013 recruiting class, and one mover and shaker was Penn State commit Brendan Mahon. (Check out his recruiting page here.) The guard from Randolph, N.J., rose 81 places in the final standings, landing at No. 58 in the country.

Here’s what Mid-Atlantic recruiting analyst Adam Friedman had to say on Rivals.com

“Mahon got one of the biggest bumps in the rankings because he manhandled some of the best players in the country down at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl,” Friedman said of the Penn State commitment. “He showed that he can handle the pass rush and was rarely fooled by the various stunts by the defensive line. When run-blocking, Mahon drove his man downfield as if they were on roller skates. On the most impressive things about Mahon is his versatility. At the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Mahon played center for the first time in his life and proved to be more then effective.”
