    Not worried about Micah unless there is big coaching turnover, which I am not worried about. He'll take visits, it will be a roller coaster for fans, but in end, his dad is big PSU guy, loves the staff and trusts them with his son. They also want him close to home.

    Micah Parsons has transferred to Harrisburg, will be on same team as fellow commit Damion Barber and likely commit Saquon Anderson-Butts

    This is very surprising, I don't think we were expected to land Kuntz. That being said, he's a great player and I'm glad we did. This class is going to be special.

    Yeah, this one came out of left field. All the talk was ND or Stanford, then Mike Gesecki decided to go crazy in new offense. Huge pickup, now let's go get Jurkovic and clean up the state this coming year

    PSU picks up a HUGE commit with QB Justin Fields from GEorgia. Kid is a perfect fit for the offense and proves how much our brand has recovered from national perception with recruits. Kid loved UGA, got an offer from them and chose us weeks later

    2018 appears to be a great class if they all can stay committed. Success and W's always equals commits. Exciting time for PSU!!!

    Having a QB like McSorley and the success he has had in this offense helps sway kids. Playing for the B1G championship doesn't hurt either.

    I watched his Hudl video, he has size and speed that is too much for most high school kids. Throws a pretty nice deep ball. He has things that need work (mostly decision making) but what HS kid doesn't.

    He was by far their top QB target in 18, they are thrilled he's on board.

    Our staff was recruiting well with 1 hand tied behind their back with fallout from sanctions,k they are showing what they can do with PSU at full power now.

    No argument LBU. My comment was more pointed that we tried to run the wrong offense with Hack. Yes the line was all there but either was Limegrover. Now with the right type of QB in the offense we are running and with Trace operating it well it sure can't hurt recruiting. Especially for similar style QBs.

    Yeah, people forget about Limegrover, but he has done one hell of a job as well. Chaz Wright made tremendous strides, as did Gonzales. If he can work his magic with that mountain of athletic clay Sterling Jenkins, look out.

    Did the staff have him over Phil? And if Notre Dame has another crap season, do they pursue Jurkovec?

    Once Fields camped for them, he shot to the top. Kid is a perfect fit for them. Phil is a good one as well, but Fields is a beast. they wouldn't have turned down Phil, but they weren't going to hold out for him and make Fields wait if both were uncommitted now

    You still not worried about Micah after all the visits he has taken after committing to us? Bama scares me.

    NO, not worried. Always knew he'd take visits. As long as we keep doing it on the field, we'll be fine. OSU is the one to worry about, not Bama, if you want to worry
