Penn State Weekly Recruiting Update 5/1

A second week has passed without a commitment…and the natives are growing restless. The staff is hard at work, though, traveling the country, visiting schools. Along with that, several (and by several, I mean hundreds) of kids are signing up to attend camps at Penn State in June. I expect a few offers to go out over the next couple of weeks, then again during the camp season.

Receiving the most recent offer was 3 star linebacker Freddie Stevenson on Monday. Freddie told me that Penn State is in his top five and is expecting a visit from Coach Hixon next week.

Worth noting is that Freddie is from Florida. If Penn State is sending coaches down to Florida, look for LB Michael Deeb to also get a visit. Maybe even the top CB in the nation, Vernon Hargreaves.

Also narrowing his list was Philadelphia running back David Williams, who told me that his “unofficial top six” included Penn State. I’m not sure if Penn State fans should view that  as good or bad news, considering most thought that PSU sat at the top, alone, for the in-state product.

I recently broke down Penn State’s linebacker recruiting and the struggles that they’ve had. Since then, Micah Kiser has also came off the board. He is at least the sixth linebacker with a Penn State offer to commit elsewhere. Penn State is still stuck with no linebackers in the 2013 class. It’s still very early and I’m not concerned, but I do expect some more linebacker offers to come out soon.

A couple of those offers could go to guys like Nick Sorrenti and Matt Galambos. Nick was at the Blue White game and will be hosting a visit from Penn State in the coming weeks. Matt tells me that he has been in touch with linebacker coach Ron Vanderlinden. Both linebackers will be camping at Penn State this June.

Attending the camp with Sorrenti will be his high school teammate and slot wide receiver candidate, Luis Uceta. Luis tells me he will also be camping at Boston College, NC State, Penn and either Cornell or Princeton.
