The Penn State Nittany Lions are turning up the heat on the recruiting trail during the offseason, and it's already paying dividends. Here's all the latest news and rumors surrounding Penn State's recruiting efforts:
4-star TE visits, to commit soon?
Matt Dotson, a four-star tight-end from Cincinnati, OH, visited Penn State this past weekend, and had enjoyed getting to know the program better.
“We hung out a lot more with the coaches and got a better feel for them and spent a lot of time with the coaches,” Dotson said, via 247sports. “It was really about the family aspect of it and they want me to be part of it and they talked about how they can use me. All of it was great, it was a good time.”
Dotson plans to make a commitment at The Opening in July, and is deciding between Penn State and Michigan State. However, he says he doesn't know which school he's going to pick.
The 6'5", 235-pounder is ranked as the No. 9 tight end and No. 291 overall prospect in the country.
WR target favors Penn State after offer
Three-star wide receiver Mac Hippenhammer (Fort Wayne, IN) picked up an offer from Penn State last week, and that put them right at the top of the list for him.
“That was huge. That was one I really wanted. I’ve always liked Penn State a lot and I’m probably going to be visiting very soon,” he said. “It was huge. I feel like I really earned it because I went to the camp there and did my thing. I did what the coaches told me to do and performed very well they said.”
The 6'0", 170-pounder is ranked as the No. 140 wideout and No. 1006 overall prospect in the country.
Nittany Lions offer 2020 QB
Quarterback Drew Pyne (New Canaan, CT) just finished middle school, yet he already has offers from several of the top schools in the country. Penn State become the latest team to offer him this week, the first class of 2020 prospect they have offered.
The 6'1", 170-pounder also has offers from Alabama, Florida State and South Carolina.Back to the Penn State Nittany Lions Newsfeed
