In the days leading up to National Signing Day, VBR will put together a wish list of the remaining Penn State targets who could possibly change previous commitments and head to Happy Valley. In this first edition, we list Isiah Wynn as someone who would be a great pick up for the Nittany Lions. Wynn, a 4-star offensive guard from St. Petersburg, Florida, is currently committed to the University of Georgia.
Many around Penn State were hopeful after 5-star offensive lineman Damian Prince included the Nittany Lions as a finalist on his list and was expected to visit the school. However, it now looks as if Prince has no intentions of visiting Penn State this week, according to Mike Farrell of Rivals.com

With the Nittany Lions out of the running for Prince, they can now focus attention on another stud lineman, Wynn. Penn State never originally offered Wynn, however he now has interest in the Nittany Lions thanks to new head coach James Franklin and the fellow former Vanderbilt coaches that he brought with him. Penn State offensive line coach Herb Hand was involved with Wynn’s recruitment at Vanderbilt and could help land the talented lineman now.
The 4-star guard made his official visit to Penn State this past weekend and a picture was tweeted for proof.

Penn State should be a very attractive spot for offensive linemen, as there are three talented running backs and a quarterback who has the potential to be one of the best in the country already in place. If the Nittany Lions are able to wrangle Wynn away from Georgia, an SEC powerhouse, it will show that Franklin has the program on the rise and plans to compete with anyone when it comes to recruiting.
Check back with VBR for more recruiting hopes and the latest Penn State news.
