Two 2016 names to keep an eye on over the summer:

PA 4* RB Miles Sanders
NY 4* QB Jake Zembiec

Both could very well commit to Penn State sooner than later.

Welcome PA 4* RB Miles Sanders as the first commitment of the Class of 2016. Miles is ranked the #3 recruit in PA for 2016.

Here's to healthy junior and senior high school seasons - welcome aboard, and I hope you run like another Sanders who was a pretty good running back.
A good team has to have players capable of making plays...oh, wait - we're so there!

MD 4*/5* DE Shane Simmons is announcing his decision next Wednesday. Yes, these 2016 kids don't sign a LOI until Feb 2016. He named a final 5, but it's really between Penn State and Florida State. His parents like PSU, and he visited this past weekend.

Now, regardless of which school he chooses, I am always very skeptical of highly rated kids who choose something other than the hometown school this early in the process.

Just looked at the Rivals 100 for 2016. There are an inordinate number of players from the PSU region of influence in it. Particularly from NJ. Rutgers about to get huge son!

As of today, Rutgers has 1 of the top 20 recruits in NJ for 2015 - #20.

In 2014, they had 2 of the top 20, #s 16 & 20.

Kyle Flood is a disaster in New Brunswick/Piscataway/whatever town they call home.

MD 5* DE Shane Simmons will announce today at 2pm on one of the ESPNs. Penn State is definitely a player.

Cool. Although he did use a very ugly Penn State hat to make his choice. Welcome aboard kid. I will temper my enthusiasm because we may end up getting Wimbushed. But still a nice feeling :)
