According to multiple reports and players, a number of the 2013 committed recruits will be in State College on Saturday to speak with Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien. DE Garrett Sickels and OL Brendan Mahon, who have been adamant about sticking with PSU, are supposedly joining Christian Hackenberg, Adam Breneman and now WR Will Fuller on Penn State’s campus.
Christian’s father has stated that his son remains currently committed to Penn State, but added that the blue chip quarterback needs to have some questions averted before making a final decision.
Will Fuller told me earlier this week that he hoped to speak with his high school coach and family soon before making a decision of his own. He likely has questions for O’Brien, as well. Remember, Fuller committed to Penn State just days after earning his offer. There’s no doubt he wants to be aNittany Lion.
It’s an understatement to call this a critical weekend in the future of the Penn State football program. If O’Brien can convince the core group of this class that Penn State still has plenty to offer, the football team has a strong chance of thriving through the bowl-less seasons.
Adam Breneman has stated that he hopes to get other recruits, such as Dorian Johnson and Curtis Cothran, on campus as well.
My theory is that the more time these kids spend together and with O’Brien and his staff, the more likely they are to remain committed to eachother and the university.
Stay tuned this weekend.
