Nittany Lions Add Two More Recruits
Penn State managed to land two recruits in addition to Chavis. The first was three-star defensive lineman Antonio Shelton, who announced his committment Sunday on Twitter. Chavis and Shelton will add depth to a defensive line that loses several key players.
The second was three-star WR Dae'lun Darien. PSU flipped him from Temple, and Darien announced his decision on Twitter Monday. For more on Darien and Shelton, download the Chat Sports Android and iPhone app.
Penn State Loses One To Pittsburgh
While PSU has landed a few players in the past couple of days, they did lose one player. Three-star athlete Aaron Matthews flipped from Penn State to Pittsburgh, he announced on Twitter. Matthews was going to play safety for PSU, but will play WR for Pitt. That was likely a big reason for his decision.
Lavert Hill Sets Decision Time
Hill is arguably the top target left for Michigan State. Today, Hill announced on Twitter that he would make his decision at 9 a.m. It's down to Penn State, Michigan State and Michigan as the three teams fighting for Hill. The four-star DB's brother plays at Michigan and they are considered the favorites. However, several of Hill's friends are going to Michigan State and the Spartans could end up finding a way to land Hill.
