    Some potentially BIG news for 2017 class. Word is Kaindoh is about to decommit from Maryland and visit PSU this weekend. This class is poised to finish VERY strong

    PSU a crystal ball favorite now, that's a huge win for Franklin. Who else, in your opinion, do you think will flip? I know Hansard is visiting again, that's big. You think there's any chance of Swift/Webb from UGA or Adams/Hainsey from ND? Landing any of them would be huge as well. Additionally, how many do you think they will take in 2017?

    Webb is visiting soon and taking official, sounds like strong chance to flip, Swift visiting, not so sure on his chances, the ND kids still seem solid to ND, but who knows....if they visit, it will most likely be on down low. We are in on a bunch of bigtime kids now, will likely take at least 5 more, but will make room for the right people as well

    Kaindoh or Hansard would be my guess.

    What % of a chance would you guys put on Hines? I don't think we have room but wouldn't it be fantastic if we got Kaindoh, Hansard, Conliffe Proctor, McFarland, Wade and A Thomas

    Fred Hansard has flipped from Florida to PSU

    Hines big A&M lean, very good chance wiyh others, but not sure we are after McFarland that much. May pursue Spence a bit harder if it cements Kaindoh. We do have the room for around 8 from what I have seen/heard

    Hansard in the fold! :nutswing:

    I thought they had been making a push for McFarland. But I heard he was probably going to the Canes? Do you think we take a RB like J Lovett? Does Castro-Fields jump in as well or is he out if we get Wade and Thomas?

    Lovett being recruited as safety, Castro Fields could end up safety as well. McFarland is being recruited, but not sure how hard. We may just pass on RB this class and go all in on Ricky Slade for 18 who we lead for unless Swift circles back to us with Webb...Webb is going to official visit to PSU

    Yeah I wasn't expecting a flip from either of the Georgia commits. Do you think we have a shot at flipping Adams or Hainsey from ND?

    We have strong shot flipping Webb.....Adams or Hainsey would be welcome surprises, but both seem solid to ND for some reason

    With the seniors leaving and maybe some juniors how we looking for depth next year? Of course looking great at QB, RB and OL but what about rest of positions?

    We should have plenty of depth across the board. Very young team with a lot of talent and the talent will only get better and better the more we win under Franklin and McSorley. Not sure how some of the redshirts will fit in on the defensive side. Safety might be the only worry spot if Allen leaves early. Figure Apke steps in and starts. But who slides in next to him? Maybe Petrishen, J Miller or A Monroe slide in? Does Sutherland come in and jump them all? The future looks very bright for PSU football. :D

    WR - Godwin, Hamilton, Blacknall, Thompkins, Johnson, Charles and Polk
    DE - Sickels, Schwan, Miller, Brown, Simmons, Buchholz
    CB - Haley, Reid, Campbell, Oruwariye, Taylor
    LB - Cabinda, Bowen, Farmer, Brown, Smith

    Does scout have Schwan labeled incorrectly? He's showing up as a RS Junior? Does Wartman-White gets a 6th year? If not he won't be back. Who other than Godwin and Allen could leave as Juniors? Was it Nelson that has a good draft stock as a OL?

    He was honored as one of the seniors prior to Saturday's game, so I am assuming he is not coming back. Here's a picture of him from senior day ceremonies

    Scenes from the 2016 Penn State Senior Day

    As far as Allen, he really needs to clean up his tackling and will greatly benefit from another year, love Godwin, but his 40 time would hurt him in draft
