On Wednesday, the Maxwell Football Club released their watch list for the 2017 National High School Player of the Year. Three Nittany Lion commits (Zack Kuntz, Justin Shorter, Ricky Slade) and two priority targets (Micah Parsons, Tyreke Smith) made the cut. The high school version of the prestigious award was first presented in 2007. The winner will be announced from a group of six semifinalists on Jan. 17, 2018.

According to a recent article by Land of 10's Tyler Donohue, there may be more Barkley to come for Penn State fans, even after Saquon leaves Happy Valley. Ali Barkley, a class of 2020 RB/LB from Whitehall, Pa., apparently has even more naturally ability than his older brother, according to his older brother. I don't think anyone in State College would mind that.
