Maybin was roommates with linebacker Navorro Bowman while at Penn State.[17] He was pursuing a double major in communications and integrative arts.[18][19]

While at Penn State, Maybin spoke frequently by phone with former Nittany Lion linebacker LaVar Arrington. The two first met during Arrington's stint with the Washington Redskins, when Maybin was playing at nearby Mount Hebron High School.[20] Arrington has joked about knowing Maybin "before he had muscles."[20] Arrington now serves as Maybin's manager.[21]

Maybin is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

Maybin's mother, Connie, died when he was 6 years old from complications during childbirth.[22] His father later remarried, and Maybin has said he considers his stepmother, Violette, to be his mother. "I have never called her my stepmother," Maybin says.[22]
