2019 Recruiting Thread

Postby Shane » Wed May 16, 2018 8:23 am

I didn't see one, so I will start a new thread.

The next couple of days should be good to the 2019 recruiting class. Tomorrow 4 star Devyn Ford, RB from Virginia is set to announce. He is one of the top backs in the country and almost everyone now believes he will pick PSU over Virginia Tech. On Monday, 4 star safety Tyler Rudolph is expected to pick PSU over Clemson and 5 star linebacker Brandon Smith is expected to pick PSU over Ohio State.

I hate these early announcements. How often does the player change his mind prior to signing day? It seems like it has to be 50% (although that's probably more a perception than a reality).
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

I don't think it's nearly 50%. A few "decommit" but not that many. I follow recruiting pretty casually but from what I've seen what should get us all excited is that so many of the guys who are listing PSU among their final choice are also being highly recruited by Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, OSU etc. That's a very good sign.

From what I've read / heard the Brandon Smith pick up would be a significant win for PSU in an area of need.

3 for 3 is quite a ball game, 667 on those three would be awsome.

Antonio Alfano from NJ is going to announce tomorrow. He's a top 5 DE recruit. He's down to Alabama, Georgia and Penn State.

He's almost assuredly going to announce for Bama today. Most believe he was going to commit to PSU almost a year ago but wasn't given the green light by Franklin. He's been to 3 high schools in the last few years and all anyone will say is that there are "things Franklin wants him to work on before he will accept a commitment".

Jaquan Brisker, #1 JUCO safety in the country committed to PSU last night. He was a former Gateway High player that I believed played for Terry Smith when he was the coach. I believe he will have 3 years to play 2.

Nice! Had a very impressive offer list.

Devyn Ford will announce today also. Fingers crossed.

Alfano is a very interesting story - he literally had set up an commitment announcement months ago (where he was expected to pick PSU) and abruptly cancelled it. Word is that JF wanted him to take more time to think things over/work on stuff. We will probably lose him to Bama now, but says a lot about JF that he eschewed a top player for principled reasons. Good man.
