Ooh, there's a List; Penn State's 2010 Recruiting Class; 2010 Signing Day.

Tomorrow is the one day in college football in which the fax machine reigns supreme - Signing Day.

Of course, we can never be sure what will happen - but take a look at the current list of "commits" 

Brad Bars (DE) is from Nashville, TN.  Bars is a 2 star recruit by Scout.  He is (so far) the one surprise in 2010, as he committed to Penn State after meeting with coach LJ, Sr - without having taken a visit to University Park.  As you've heard around the message board, if Coach Johnson likes this kid, then I like him too.

Kyle Baublitz (DE) is described with one word "tough." This 4 star (Scout) lineman from York, PA is yet another one of Coach Johnson's recruits (surprised? no, me neither).

Robert Bolden (QB) from Orchard Lake MI is a 4 star (Scout) recruit.  He's an all star quarterback who is well suited to the Penn State system.

Miles Dieffenbach (C), from Pittsburgh, PA, is another 4 star recruit.  Scout touts him as a versatile offensive lineman.

Khari Fortt (OLB) from Stamford CT, played in the US Army Game this year.  He's a tall and quick linebacker who fully intends to lead Penn State to a National Championship.  Scout ranks him at 4 stars.

Luke Graham (OG) is a 6'5" 3 star recruit (Scout).  Graham, from Harrison City PA, was recruited by coach Tom Bradley

Evan Hailes (DT) gets 4 stars from Scout.  Hailes hails from Chesapeake, VA and committed to Penn State last summer while attending football camp.

Kevin Haplea (TE), from Annandale NJ, is a 4 star (Scout) tight end.  Scout has high praise for his blocking abilities and expect him to contribute early (good!).

Mike Hull (MLB), of Canonsburg PA, is a five star recruit and the #1 ranked middle linebacker in this year's class.  Hull impressed the "experts" at the US Army game.

Daquan Jones (DT), from Johnson City NY, is a 4 star recruit.  Jones will join Larry Johnson's crew of prodigies.

Paul Jones (QB) is the #3 ranked Quarterback in the country and has a 5 star ranking (Scout).  From McKees Rocks, PA, Jones is a big, strong kid who can run and throw - it will be interesting to see how he and Boldon fit into the HD scheme

Alex Kenney (WR) is another yet another recruit from State College, PA.  The 4 star (Scout) recruit helped the Little Lions get all the way to the PA State Championship.

Khamrone Kolb (OT) is from Burke VA.  This 3 star (Scout) recruit is (already) 6'6".

Levi Norwood (WR) from Waco, TX is a 3 star (Scout) recruit.  Where have we seen this name before?  Levi had to sit out the 2008 football season due to his family's move to Texas (because, yes, his father is Brian Norwood) -

CJ Olaniyan (DE) is a 6'5" 4 star (Scout) recruit from Warren MI.  He's tall - and has room to bulk up.

Shyquawn Pullium (CB), from Erie PA, is a 3 star (Scout) recruit.  Penn State can seriously use some talent in the secondary.

Silas Redd (RB) of Stamford CT is the #1 player coming out of Connecticut this year.  He's a 5 star (Scout) running back who can also catch!

Tom Rickets (OT), of Wexford PA, is a 4 star recuit.  6'6", Rickets has good athleticism and control

Dakota Royer (OLB) is a 4 star recruit.  Another Pennsylvania linebacker, Royer is from Manheim PA.

Zach Zwinak (FB).  This 4 star recruit (Scout) is the #1 ranked full back in the nation.  From Frederick MD, he is touted as a speedy runner and a great blocker.

Still on the board:

Keenan Allen (S) from Greensboro, NC is #1 safety in the country.  This 5 star recruit (Scout) has a reported medium interest in Penn State - we'll have to see what happens.

Marcus Lattimore (RB) is the #1 running back and Scout's #2 player in the country.   From Duncan, SC, this 5 star recruit it a major long shot for Penn State - but, again, you never know...

Michael Thorton (DT), from Stone Mountain GA, reportedly had a great visit at Penn State.  This 4 star (Scout) lineman has said that he's still looking at 11 or 12 schools - but that he will definitely be making his choice on Wednesday.

Paul Jones can run and throw b/c he's from Sto-Rox and you best be able to run there. Trust me, I live up the hill from there and on occasions I can hear the gun shots.

So you live in dangerous area Amanda?

I don't pay much attention to recruitng except when a local kid is involved. FTR-We have had two from here in recent years go to PSU-one from our HS and then one from our rival 4 years later who will be a sophomore this fall.

my high school is State College Area - there have been a few kids from there over the years ;)

barrister said...

Yes just a few from State College!

My actual HS is Massachusetts has to my knowledge never sent a graduate to PSU-but there was a Nittany Lion connection from when I was there a LONG time ago. When I refer to "our HS" it is to the HS where my kids graduated/are still attending here in beautiful South Joisey!
