Oh. My. Goodness. Penn State 2018 all-everything commit, Micah Parsons, dropped his junior season highlights and it's just pure ridiculousness. 

thomas commits to michigan

Penn State wowed Detroit cornerback Ambry Thomas on his official visit for the Michigan State game a couple weeks ago. Though the visit may have given the 4-star more to think about, he ultimately committed to Michigan today. This decision likely keeps the door open for cornerback Donovan Johnson, who is visiting the Lions this weekend. Here's Thomas' commitment video, if you're into that sort of thing.

2017 PSU wide receiver commit Mac Hippenhammer was selected as Indiana's top WR by the Indianapolis Star. Our buddy Sean Fitz at Lions247 had a great write-up of Hippenhammer's season, and his plans for his official visit to Penn State.

coaches go in-house

Winning a conference championship cut out a week of recruiting for the Penn State staff, but they're flying all over to drop in on committed and uncommitted prospects across the country. Recent stops include Brelin Faison-Walden, Brailyn Franklin, and Fred Hansard.

penn state targets practice at psu

Before heading to Hershey for their state title tilt against Imhotep Charter, Erie Cathedral Prep held practice at the Penn State facility Wednesday. 2018 targets Juice Scruggs and Matthew Bauer (ND commit) play for Prep. Can't hurt to have them on campus.


  • Josh Newberg of 247Sports' Flordia State site crystal-balled Josh Kaindoh to the Seminoles, and explains why in this article. FSU and Penn State are generally viewed as the top choices for the nation's No. 2 defensive end.
  • Rivals gave an update on the recruiting process for 2018 QB target Re-al Mitchell. He's the 25th ranked dual-threat quarterback, according to the 247Sports Composite.
  • Sean Fitz caught up with 2017 WR/DB target Tariq Castro-Fields to get the lowdown on his remaining visits and potential decision date.

As always, we suggest you support our crootin' buddies at Blue/White Illustrated and Lions247.
