Hello, loyal readers! We're going to try a new thing where we post a recruiting update in the evening instead of the morning and see how it goes. Cool? Cool! Let's do it!

walking tall

One of Penn State's top 2018 targets on the offensive line is four-star tackle Rasheed Walker (Waldorf, Md.). On Wednesday night, he dropped his top six schools, which of course included the Lions. Other contenders are Ohio State, Virginia Tech, UNC, Rutgers and Maryland.

Blue White game visitors list is awesome

PennLive's Greg Pickel has a running list of prospects expected to visit for Penn State's annual spring game this Saturday. If everyone shows, it will be a silly assembly of talent in Beaver Stadium to take in the yearly scrimmage.

lazenby loves his visit

Since Patrick Chambers identified JUCO wing Ty Lazenby (Tonkawa, Okla.) a few weeks ago, the Lions have made him a priority for the 2017 class. Lazenby and his father visited Penn State Monday through Wednesday, and it seems he had a great time, though he's not actually commited [sic]. Andrew Callahan of Lions247 caught up with Lazenby following his tour of campus and pickup games with the team. We'll find out pretty quickly where the Lions stand, as Lazenby is set to visit Oklahoma (no offer) and Utah (offer) this week. 

espn top 300 loves the lions

On Thursday, ESPN dropped its top 300 players for the class of 2018, and well, they love Penn State's class so far. Justin Fields (No. 3), Micah Parsons (No. 8) and Ricky Slade (No. 17) are all in the overall top-20. The entire list features eight Nittany Lion commits, and nearly a dozen of Franklin's other top targets.

bleich visits huskers

According to Chris Heady at Land of 10, Penn State offensive line commit Chris Bleich (Plymouth, Pa.) had his "eyes opened" by a recent trip to Lincoln. Bleich hasn't been shy about visiting other programs. While he remains committed to James Franklin, the trip to Nebraska marks his fourth visit to another school since committing last April.

dread is good

Can he reclassify for 2017? Please? Penn State's 2018 combo guard Myles Dread (Washington, DC) continues to draw rave reviews. Check out some recent highlights courtesy of @HoopMajor.
