As I’m sure you read here on VBR, Johnathan Warner was recently offered by Penn State. Warner was scheduled to take his official visit this weekend but had a long trip from Washington, to Atlanta, to Detroit…where he was delayed for nearly 18 hours, just arriving in State College late this morning. I had a chance to discuss some things with Warner while he was stuck in Detroit.
Johnathan, the son of former Penn State great Curt Warner told me on Friday night that he had previously been to State College 3 or 4 times “and I love it there.” I explained that it seemed to me he was close to committing, and asked what he was looking for on his trip:
“I am looking forward to meeting my position coach (Stan Hixon) and talking with him about what he sees from me and what he expects from me…but yes Penn State is definitely the favorite, for sure!”
Well apparently he liked what he heard from Hixon, because he has informed me that he decided to pull the trigger and commit. Johnathan is a pure WR and has a chance to contribute soon.
Penn State has a long tradition of legacy players, most recently including Joe Suhey along with Pat and Mike Mauti, and now they can add another to that list.
I think we got a good one in Johnathan Warner.
