[MAse voice] welcome back, welcome back, welcome baaaaaack
Penn State hosted a bunch of recruits over the next few classes during its game against Georgia State. Because it was a night game, the environment understandably made a big impact on those in attendance.

To wrap up the big names in attendance who are uncommitted, Oweh and 2020 running back Chris Tyree both talked to 247Sports about their visits, while Faucheux and 2020 receiver Julian Fleming talked to Rivals. Get a subscription to all of them to read these.
Lastly, here are some pictures of the kids who made it, all via RLR's Adriana Lacy.
So yeah! Fun weekend. Lots happened.
HOOPS Recruits were in town, too
In hoops news, two-star 2019 guard Jack Clark made it to town. The Philly native hung out with some of his fellow Philadelphians while on campus.
Here are some funny numbers that Ricky Slade and Jayson Oweh put up over the weekend

Hey look, a new offer!
Penn State extended an offer to 2019 quarterback Michael Johnson. A current resident of Eugene, Oregon, Johnson announced the news on his Twitter.

Johnson is a four-star prospect and the No. 172 player in the nation, per his 247Sports Composite rating. As you can guess based on his location, Oregon is the favorite to retain his services, as nine of his 12 Crystal Ball predictions have him playing for Willie Taggart's Ducks. Also, his dad is Oregon's wide receivers coach.
